Hi English Teachers,
Is the below sentence acceptable? Thanks a lot in advance.
I always moot questions in a forum to improve my English.

It does not sound natural to me. I would use ask/post.

I'm not sure that a person can moot. If something is not worth talking about it is moot, but there it's an adjective. There's also a much less commonly used noun (so rarely used that I haven't encumbered my brain with a definition :) (though I have a feeling it may be a kind of parliament).

Maybe there is a verb too - something like 'suggest'...:-? but it definitely doesn't collocate with 'question'.
