i cannot see/find my thread and cannot go to my setting.
Hi. If you look at your profile you can see your thread there: http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/members/559684.html
Alternatively, go to the 'Quick Links' menu and select either 'My Posts' or 'My Threads'.
Hope that helps!
I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
