Better call Chuck Schummer and arrange an immediate 3 day hearing for those of us guilty of breaking grammar rules.

Be sure to follow those televised hearings with FBI investigations of any former teachers who recall any improper grammar 35 years ago and the obligatory year book check.

And as pointed out, international community. I know if I attempted a conversation in French, I would be on Devils Island shortly there after. I have enough trouble with English, so you better call Spartacus

That bothers you?

You should watch some New Zealand TV shows! In New Zealand English there is no soft "e".

Examples such that you can understand this.

Suspect = Suspeect
Evidence = EEvideence
Sex = Seex
Six = Sex (yea, they butcher i's as well.

It is utterly amazing to listen to.

I got so tired of reading "loose" to represent 'lose/opposite of gain' that I registered as "Lew Stule" (Loose Stool)

Good man. Slovenly language leads to slovenly thoughts and vice versa.

Wordrefrence is good for avoiding "faux amis"
as we say, in English

I recommend taking a technical writing course. Being able to structure a sentence in writing is extremely important in an age of text-only mediums. Generally, people have forgotten how to write a properly structured sentence, nevermind spelling. I judge potential hiring candidates harshly on their ability to write and communicate without wordiness, the use of non-words, the interchanging of phonetically similar words, and the mispronunciation of words.

Typos are understandable especially when typing on phones and tablets. Spell-check will NOT catch all the grammatical mistakes, though there are programs available that will catch most. Regardless, it still requires a good basis from which to work if you want to be able to communicate in a timely manner. There are free technical writing classes online as well as free typing tests that will log your improvement over time.

Please make the effort to use correct grammar and spelling. All we have of each other on the internet are the ideas we convey with our words. Make it worth your while. People will read your work and they will ignore it regardless of the merit of your ideas if what you write is incomprehensible or even annoying to read. No one is asking for perfection. These pages are littered with my typos and missed editing windows. But make an effort, please.

I can parse out what's being said more or less in Spanish. I can understand the spelling conventions for it, but its grammatical structure frustrates me to no end.

So, no, I can't write in another language.

But, then again, I'm weird. English intuitively makes perfect sense grammatically to me and always has. I never understood why it was so hard for so many people to pick up, and I suspect that what's a strength on one side has sort of doomed me from the other.

Off of the top of my head...

English is pretty 'easy' to lurn ;=)
There is a certain logic behind it though
compared to ... german or french

Once you can master, let's say, the basic 6 tenses
you should be capable of having a meaningfull conversation
with a 'native' speaker...

Take german : why does the verb come at the end of the sentance ?
French : why are certain "things" classified as male or female ?

Because
