    Question Stonecoalenglish Dutch Girl wants to learn english..


    What's the correct way of saying this:

    "Only at me.
    1,5 year open wound on finger, took the brave step to get surgery then SUDDENLY > healed. But now my half hand lost sense and is swollen. Don't know what's worse?`"

    Re: Stonecoalenglish Dutch Girl wants to learn english..

    Welcome to the forum.

    1. What has your thread title got to do with the contents of your post?
    2. Your actual sentence makes no sense at all. I have no idea what "Only at me" means at the beginning. Why is "suddenly" in capitals? Why is there an errant > in the middle of a sentence?

    Can you explain in a different way what you were trying to say?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Is this a literal translation of how you would say it in Dutch?

    You could try posting the Dutch version in our Other Languages forum and asking for a natural-sounding English version.
