    I'm afraid they all seem like broken English to me, FFF-- at least, the conversation seems awkward and contrived. It also seems quite rude overall-- someone is soon going to get punched in the nose.

    For B, the expression is You should be ashamed of yourself!

    Re: Hello, I need some help!

    I have to agree with you

    I wanted to explain loser is really a bad word and usually we should avoid using it because it hurts others.
    As for situations in matches, we can use it but it is still rude and impolite.

    I don't think there is grammar mistake about the sentence that "You should feel shame on yourself." The expression itself is weird though. ?

    Still, i want to know if there are any mistakes in A's experessions except for impoliteness. Thanks!

    OK-- here is a revision of A's role:


    A: You are very sick. I really mean it-- What a loser!

    A: Check your stupid vocabulary-- it's broken English. (However, I don't really understand your original sentence here, FFF)

    A: There's still a serious grammar mistake.

    A: Loser!

    A: I'm dissing A, nobody else.

    A: You're a pain...

    PS: Hi, Janina. Yes, I like Dickens very much. And he's good for students, because he is relatively easy to read (in spite of the dated language).
