    Welcome to the forum.

    First, please see my corrections above. You are an English teacher so it's important that everything you write is correct because learners on this forum will assume that that is the case.

    Have you looked at English Banana? They have great stuff for all levels.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Please don't write everything in capital letters. It's the online equivalent of shouting.

    I don't understand the part above, marked in red. Can you explain it in a different way?

    Re: Thank you. I will try it.

    Sorry I didn't know that.( capital letters)

    I mean I never pay attention to grammatical rules. Even in my native language. It is not my business to teach grammatical rules here. If somebody wants to learn english , he should buy a grammar book , not read my comments and learn it. Here I only demand some passages or stories. I want to give you an example. If I want to learn one's name I say : " name ? " and I learn it but if I am teaching english grammatical rules I say " what is your name ?" and I wait for the answer " My name is ......"
    In summary indeed you are right we should always take care grammatical rules but you should know that in communication it is important to give your emotions. When you go out , all people speak English but only a few use it correctly.

    Thank you for correcting my mistakes. To speak errorless you need to live in a foreign language. If you have four English lessons a week , it is difficult to use everything perfect.

    Re: Thank you. I will try it.

    I am quite certain that when I wrote post #2, your member info showed "English teacher". That's why I pointed out that it's important for English teachers to use correct, grammatical English at all times on the forum. I see that your member info now says "Interested in Language" so I assume you are a learner. Nonetheless, on this forum, you are expected to use correct spelling, capitalisation and punctuation. We will then correct your grammar and construction.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
