    Is there any grammar mistakes in my text?

    Hello all,

    I am doing/taking an online beginner's grammar course of English. I think it is a very useful course because I can revise everything I had learned or had not learned in the past, I mean in the school I studied.

    Originally, there are many basic grammars I haven't learnt yet. So, I think taking the "beginner's course" is the wisest choice I have made. Many people started with an intermediate level, but I think I should not do that because as mentioned above, there are many basic grammars I haven't learnt yet that I should do a beginner's course first.
    Maybe you think this is none of your business. Actually, I don't have a job to do so far. I am just spending some time to type something here. I hope I will finish all the courses I am interested in studying in that college's website.
    Today, I won't go outside because I don't have money to buy things. What I can do is to study the course at home and finish the second assignment. I have got excellent marks in the first assignment but I know it is much harder in the second assignment. I have to try harder in order to get good marks to pass it. Anyway, I just want to express what I am thinking in my mind.

    Is there any grammar mistakes in the text above? I am very pleased to see your comments. Thanks a lot~

    Hello,

    Nice to meet you too. It seems that your English is not bad. I didn't see any grammar mistake in your writing above.
    I like learning languages especially English and Japanese. I am doing an online English course and I am taking a Japanese course.
    I know my English is not good enough, just not too bad. I am trying my best to learn it and I have done my second assignment of the course. There are some questions I am not sure if I get it correct Of course, I hope I get high marks there but I know it is not easy.
    Actually, I am taking a grammar and vocabulary course. My vocabulary is really limited. Many people whose grammar is worse than me have more vocabularies than I have. My listening is not so bad but I can hardly understand what native speakers say because I am lacking in vocabularies. There are many words I haven't learnt before and maybe I have forgotten many words I have learnt before.
    Anyway, I must try my best to study the course and I hope my English will be much improved after I finished the courses.

    If there is any grammar mistake, I am very pleased to know it. Thank you very much!

    OriginallyAt first, there are were many topics on basic grammars I haven't learnt yet hadn't learned. So, I think taking the "beginner's course" is was the wisest choice I have made.

    Hey,
    I have some problems with the way you corrected my post:

    1) I'm not a Chinese student. Actually, I referred to Chocobo. Nice to meet a Chinese student here!
    2) I checked a dictionary and I am positive about this fact that I can use a simple present verb after "hope that".
    3) Why do you insist on changing the structure of "if conditioning sentences"? Maybe you could correct me this way: I will appreciate it if you find my grammar mistakes.

    Overall, I thank you for your help.
    Please correct my mistakes if you encounter any.

    Perhaps:

    I am taking an online course in English grammar.

    I hope you don't have to revise much, because if you do that means you were taught the wrong things.

    Now I understand. Your original version was not natural. The underlined version is better.

    2) I checked a dictionary and I am positive about this fact that I can use a simple present verb after "hope that".
    Yes, you can, but I do not think it is appropriate in the context. You are hoping for something (doing well in all future assignments ). The present tense is sometimes used with the "immediate future", probably the assignment at hand. Will/would is more appropriate to refer to the future in general. I would say "will"(implying certainty) is better.

    3) Why do you insist on changing the structure of "if conditioning sentences"? Maybe you could correct me this way: I will appreciate it if you find my grammar mistakes.
    Will you not appreciate other people's efforts if they check your writing and do not find any mistake? You normally say you request others to check your writing, not "find your mistakes". Sometimes it is not about mistakes, but how a sentence can be improved, as I have discussed above.
    This is not an issue of grammar, but logic.

    Overall, I thank you for your help.
    Your feedback is welcome. I am learning as well.
