    Can you help me please? Unnecessary. You already asked this in the previous sentence.
    Arditi Unnecessary. We can see your username at the top of the post.
    Welcome to the forum.

    Here are my first tips:

    - Get a good grammar book. Look for ones by Raymond Murphy to begin with.
    - Expose yourself to English as often as possible - listen to English-speaking radio, watch TV/films in English. Read (simple) books in English.
    - Try to find a native English speaker who is happy to do some English conversation with you (maybe in exchange for learning your native language).

    Note my corrections to your post above. It is important to follow these rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with one, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Always capitalise proper nouns (English, Shakespeare, Microsoft etc).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
