    Re: grammar-question

    z-khan, welcome to Using English.

    There are a few things we expect from our English learners:
    Use the best English you can. For example, don't use "text" words like "wanna" instead of "want to" and capitalize the first word of a sentence the pronoun "I."

    Don't leave a space before your punctuation marks. Leave a space after. Use only one (not three ???)
    "Way of talking" is a noun phrase.
    "Great" is an adjective.
    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.
