    Re: I need your help

    Dear Phamuel,

    I will take what you posted, and rewrite it in proper English, which will give you a small help. However, you will need to find a course that can take you through step by step.

    Here is your paragraph rewritten:

    I'm simply a guy who wants to learn to speak English effectively. In fact, I would like to speak it fluently. Please, it seems that I have problems when I form English sentences. I would also appreciate it if you would communicate with me and teach me English because I want the English language to be my second language. I hope my request will be granted. Please, reply soon. (We only use 'immediately' when in an urgent situation)

    You are off to a good start. Try typing 'learn english online' into a search box to see what opportunities are available on the web.

    IN some cases, the verb 'want' can be followed by a noun.

    Re: I need your help

    In most cases, the word want is a transitive verb, which means that it needs a direct object. We usually want something. That direct object is usually a noun, a noun phrase, or a group of words acting like a noun (like an infinitive verb).

    I want food. (noun)
    I want hot, delicious, cheap food. (noun phrase)
    I want to eat. (infinitive)
