Do you need help with your spelling?

Last Update: May 11, 2016

One of our members, Jim-bo, inspired me today with his post Salute to The Grammar Nazis.

I saw an opportunity to help you if you want.

I'm not an English native, so, I needed more confidence when I write something. I subscribed to the pro version of a proofreading tool, which, I'm sure cannot detect all the errors I make. But, this tool helped me, and I become much confident. I can write more and I'm pleased I can do it.

I can offer you for free, checkings for your articles, if you guess it's your case.

Of course, you can send me a PM (personal message), and I will be more than interested to be useful to you.

Hi Christina, it is really nice what you offering. As you I am not English native so I totally understand about that confidence. It is good to know we can have that help here. Thank you and I will keep you in mind if I need help with that.

Have a great day!

This is so generous of you Cristina. I am a native speaking Englishman and have ProAid which to say the least does not help with conversational english, it might correct general errors but I still have to work with it to get it right. So good luck with this it will certainly help people.

That's very WA of you Cristina.

I think Jim-Bo was looking at our efforts as an English teacher and as such found certain common errors irritating. However, I have worked in various non English speaking countries and found their incorrect use of grammar endearing.

What is your view, do you think every T should be crossed and I dotted, or do mistakes common to the language of the writer add flavour to the piece?

Keith, I agree with Jim.
In my language, when I find an article full of errors, I feel sorrow for the author.
If it is an interesting topic, I read it anyway.
But I think that many errors distract me because I want to fix them!
:-))))
Thank you for your comment!

If I can help, why not? I saw myself that was true what Jim wrote in his post. And maybe some of our members cannot afford the payment for the pro version of a tool like the one I have.
