    As good as me

    Hi,

    -Your English is good.
    -I want everyone's English to be as good as me.
    I wonder if the answer is idiomatic in AE. I am a tutor and my dream is to teach idiomatic English and someone said the first expression to me and I answered like that.

    Re: As good as me

    Should it be 'as good as mine'?

    Yes.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    You asked the same question in the Word Reference forum one minute after Barb's answer. Was that not good enough for you?

    The OP might have received email notification ten minutes after Barb_D answered, the system here does not notify members in real time.
