I've been interested in Spanish for a few years, and hope to start using it when I go on my holidays. I like the fact that it's a world-wide language, and I can find out a little bit about other cultures.
I've also started learning some basic French as well, as I like its rhythm and intonation; as with many things, I wish I'd tried it years ago. I like hunting rabbits with Jack Russell terriers and drinking cider in the summer.
I'm happy to correct articles for others, but recently I haven't posted too many myself, because I have wanted to learn a bit more Spanish and French first, in an effort to avoid making too many simple mistakes. I tend to make most of my corrections in English to a British style, since this is where I'm from.
The corrections that I make are mostly coloured blue, and important or obvious errors may get coloured in red. I think that I make corrections in a sentence to a good standard of English, but if I see that someone is just beginning to learn the fundamentals of English, I will try to make only the more important corrections, to avoid overwhelming someone with corrections.
My preference is to make corrections, rather than make more new "friends". I like new "friends" here to have written more than one article, because it seems that many new people here will write one or two posts, and then disappear, never using this site again.
It's often difficult to explain exactly why English works in a certain way, but I like to learn things myself as I go along. I'm starting to realise that English has a lot of idiosyncrasies and pitfalls compared to some other European languages.
