    blablabla I guess

    Hello.

    When I'm talking in English I use a strange contrusction: I put such phrases like "I think" "I guess" and etc. at the end of the sentence.

    For instance:

    She is from Mexico I guess.

    Does it sound natural?
    Honestly, I don't know why I put it at the end. It happens automatically.

    Thanks in advance.
    Boris.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    In spoken English, that is acceptable. When you write it, use a comma before the expression.

    It will sound natural as plenty of speakers do the same.
