@Jeffiong19,
For starters, don't learn any more grammar!
The secret is, not to obey any rules of grammar.
e.g the Past Tense of 'to see':
I sees
I seen
I had saw
I saw

Take your pick!!

@Jeffiong19,
That depends on your situation, Jeffiong. If you live in America, try to get into conversations, and if you are talking with someone you know fairly well, ask them to point out things that just don't sound natural. If you are in a non English speaking country, it will be more difficult. Try reading fiction that has lots of dialog, but not something intellectual.

Andrew. One of these days, remind me of the disc jockey training course.

@Bazza6,
You are just as stuffed full of sh*t as the proverbial Christmas goose. You have no business giving English language advice because you don't know what the hell you're talking about.

********************************************

When speaking to foreigners--anyone with an accent you don't recognize, such as Brits, Germans, people from Alabama or California--SPEAK . . . SLOWLY . . . AND . . . VERY . . . LOUDLY. It will help them to understand.

You could get advice from Johnny Depp on talking like a pirate, or the Bangles on walking like an Ee - Gyptian.

@Jeffiong19,
Your English in your first message is fine, except do not put an S on help.
Also not on the word ...anyway, it doesn't need an s.

And get an English grammar book.

A half chewed hamburger and mouthful of beer does just as well.
