    Correcting Grammar by Telling Stories

    Hello, here I'd like to make some sentences or maybe telling a story and write anything (that/what) I want to write to upgrade my vocabularies and grammar because this is one of the ways I learn English.
    So I'm going to write something and, I hope you guys will answer and correct my grammar if I'm wrong and, also I'll write 2 words in (parentheses/brackets) when I (hesitate/doubt) to determine (which/which one) of the two words is correct.
    So, I have some problems (in/with) learning English. Sometimes I feel confused and my mind goes blank and also get nervous like shaking when I want to say something to someone. And one of my problems is vocabulary and, I'm pretty sure that I'm so poor of it, and when people talk to me, sometimes I understand what they say sometimes don't. Because I don't understand some words of what they say like what I wrote above that I'm poor of vocabulary, so that makes me confused.
    But (when/if) compared between talking and listening, I'd say that it's easier to listen than talk, cause I can use my mind to understand (of/without of) what they say, even though I don't understand the complete sentence. Of course, writing is easiest than the other two cause I can think a thousand times to do it, even though what I've written is wrong LOL.
    Alright so this is a little of my story (of/about) Learning English, and I'll do it again next time to upgrade my vocabularies and grammar.
    Thank You.

    This looks like a homework exercise.

    Probably yes, but I'm not a student anymore.
    I'm 21 years old and, I can speak 4 languages.

    1. Indonesian (My main language)
    2. Japanese
    3. German
    4. Sundanese (One of the local languages in Indonesia)

    But I can't speak English well, so here I am.

    Of course, writing is easiest easier than the other two because I can think about what I'm writing a thousand times to do it before I write it, even though sometimes what I've written I write is still wrong. LOL.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You're welcome but please note that there is no need to write a new post to say "Thank you" to anyone. Clicking on the Thank button, as you already did, suffices.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
