    Welcome to the forum, Loba-Rabioza. Post your questions here, and we'll do our best to help.

    You can start by avoiding chatlish ('u' for 'you'). We try to use correct forms of English in this forum as a guide to others.

    Since you're a teacher, your English can't be that bad, can it?
    Please note that I'm not a teacher.

    If you know it, why don't you do it?

    'Dear' is not an appropriate form of address except to intimate friends in English.

    Re: Hi! I'm latin

    We are here to help other people, and so I consider everyone is as a dear.
    Thank you.

    NOT A TEACHER

    I completely agree that this is not a place to call other members "dear".

    However, I heard Americans, especially older women when talking to younger males, use "dear" even though the men were complete strangers to them. Once in Boston (I was 20 then), I asked two older women directions and their response was something like "Dear you must get on ...." So probably in AmE it's all right to use it in such contexts and situations.
    Please note that I'm not a teacher.
