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, and I think that some American corrections reveal a lower standard of English.
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 leave some minor mistakes uncorrected.
I like new "friends" here to have written more than one article, to make it worthwhile. 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.
