Sure, sometimes I check dictionary to find how the words pronunce. and ofcourse to help students speak these words correctly. As you know we are not native speakers so learning english as a second language required alot of practices.
    Do you think native speakers don't make mistakes in their speech? If yes, you are mistaken. They do and very often. So not only foreigners but also native speakers have to brush up their English from time to time.

    They not only make mistakes but also they can't explain why they write this way or that way. I mean they don't know the grammar of their language. Concequently there are mistakes in their writing. A lot of native speakers work in Moscow. They don't teach English grammar. They develop students in speaking and do it rather well, I must say.

    It is obviously that you are right. Even my mother tongue, some of my students always get wrong in spelling. Misunderstand between L and N. So to learn any language needs alot of practices and spend much time.

    Is the spelling of your mother tongue easy? For example the spelling of English isn't easy at all. That's why even native speakers make mistakes. For me it's very important to find ways out of this situation.

    I think my mother toungue is not really easy. It only easy when you got a basic grammar and you have to come through a period of study.if not, you will get mistake easily even when you are older. And I agree with you that some mistake in english is not strange.

    If there is no answer it means they make a lot of mistakes as everybody makes in his or her native language.
    Now I really enjoy teaching English. I have my personal site and my students can visit it and I hope it'll help them improve their English.

    Harry,
    You still can carry on teaching via forums, right? Go on.Many need your teaching.
