English is very important for me because [STRIKE]im[/STRIKE] I work in the hotel [STRIKE]line[/STRIKE] industry.

Welcome to the forum. Please look at the corrections I made in red. Remember the rules of written English:

- Start every sentence with a capital letter.
- End every sentence with one punctuation mark.
- Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
- Always capitalise proper nouns (English, Malaysia, London, Kuala Lumpur).
- The contraction of "I am" is "I'm".
- Use full English words in the forum. Do not write "u", write "you". "Plssssss" is not a word.

Hi, all! [Hello, everybody!]

I'm new here.

I'm very interested in using English.

I'm not very fluent in English.

Hopefully, you guys can teach me to speak English very well, please.

I'm from Malaysia.

English is very important for me, because I work in the hotel business.

Welcome to the forum, Shamirz.

Please have a careful look at the changes I have made to your English and your punctuation, and try to write your future questions in the same way. Please note that we start all sentences with capital letters, and we end them with appropriate punctuation marks. We do not write in bold format, and we don't use the sort of short-cuts that you see in phone text messages.

emsr2d2; You beat me to the punch again! That's touch typing vs my hunt-and-peck...

With the exception of one of us choosing "business" and the other "industry", it's good to see our corrections were identical, Grumpy. It makes a change for native speakers to agree quite so entirely on anything on this forum! ;-)

The grammar book that I would recommend is Michael Swan's Practical English Usage. It's full of good explanations of grammar, and also real usage and tricky areas. It's an essential book IMO and you won't regret buying it. It's a book for life.

This book is very popular - you will probably find it in the nearest bookshop.

Simply out of curiosity, why don't you listen to what teachers and native speakers tell you here, on this site?

You must try. If you don't try to follow such simple and straightforward advice as that given by ems and Grumpy, you may find that people won't bother to respond to your questions.

Why [STRIKE]after[/STRIKE] does "that's" [STRIKE]must[/STRIKE] have an "s"? And one more thing, for "words" should I use "have" or "has"? For example, "must have" or "must has". I'm a bit confused. Thank you very much.

Before we answer your question, you must look at the corrections and at earlier posts in this thread. It is very important that you use correct written English. I will now repeat the rules I gave you in my first post:

- Start every sentence with a capital letter.
- Always capitalise the word "I".
- End every sentence with a single punctuation mark.
- Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark, exclamation mark or closing quotation marks.
- Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark, exclamation mark or closing quotation marks.

If your next post does not show that you are trying very hard to follow these rules, I will not help you any more.
