    Smile My Engilsh is the best.

    It seems there is nothing about the sentence "My Engilsh is the best.", but i'm not sure whether native speakers would say so if they want to express the same meaning.

    What would native speakers say if they want to say "My Engilsh is the best."?

    Re: My Engilsh is the best.

    'My English is the best' is a correct sentence, but it doesn't seem a very natural thing for a native speaker to say- who are they better than? Some people might feel that their English is better than some dialects, but normally I don't compare my English to other people's.

    Re: My Engilsh is the best.

    I would fully agree with Tdol. It's a bit nonsensical to compare one another's English as far as native speakers are concerned. The world is full of Englishes and none is better than the other. However, the students of English for whom English is not a mother tongue may be tempted to say: "My English is the best!". Cheers! :d

    'make' a mistake, not 'do' a mistake

    Cool Re: My Engilsh is the best.

    Your examples are sounds really good, I have got a doubt in that.

    Which one of the following is correct.

    I would HAVE NOT made this mistake OR
    I would NOT HAVE made this mistake

    Where is the right positon to put NOT.

    Thanks in advance,
    Mahi.
