"This is a free lesson you should consider it as an opportunity for you to learn English  which your parents don't have to spend tons of money to send you to learn English  in an institution. So stop acting like such a Moran and be great full to those that cares enough"

OK,

At not in an institution, if I'm sent to reside in an institution I'm afraid I have more problems than correcting English.

It's moron not moran and you don't capitalize it.

grateful not greatful.

care not cares

But ya, that's exactly why I don't correct peoples English, I mean who cares really.

I was just testing a grammar/spelling police. Thank you for doing your work biggrin


Oops! I thought it was a grammar/spelling police who corrected my message , any way you're still wrong to have correct my sentence as (someone that cares) to someone that care because cares is being used in the active tense making it the correct tense to be used in that context

It should be 'those who care' (because 'those' is plural), or 'someone who cares' (because 'someone' is singular).

Also, 'who' is better than 'that' because we're referring to humans (e.g. 'the mouse that ran away' vs. the man who ran away').

*********

Think this section of the forum could be a better home for the samakomlao English police...

I suggest that anyone who wishes to correct someone else's language mistakes copy & paste the relevant sentences here & add in their corrections. This way, discussions won't be interrupted by off-topic corrections. Those who wish to improve their English for free can easily refer to this section to learn - smart people learn from their mistakes, but smarter people learn from other people's mistakes :P

Those who hate being corrected by others can conveniently avoid this place & we'll have peace & fewer bruised egos :)

What do you think?

I think we have to pay noodle for those who help us check the grammars. For those whose your sentences were corrected, don't be sad, please accept it and learn from each other.

We need to be symbiosis <<< Do you know this word ? biggrin

 Correction : We have not wehave......and we should be We ...An Elderly Chinese Lady -Wisdom And A Cracked Pot

An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on theends of a pole which she carried across her neck. One of the pots

had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always

delivered a full portion of water.

At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the

cracked pot arrived only half full. This went on everyday for

two years. The woman brought home only one and a half pots of

water. The perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments. The poor cracked pot

was ashamed of its imperfection. It felt miserable because it could only do half of

what it had been made to do.

After 2 years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to

the woman one day.

"I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes

water to leak out all the way back to your house."

The old woman smiled, "Did you notice that there are flowers on

your side of the path, but not on the other pot's side? I have always known about

your flaw, so I planted flower seeds on your side of the path. Every day while we

walk back from the stream, you water the flowers."

"For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to

decorate the table. Without your crack, there would be no

flowers to give joy and beauty to me and my home."

Each of us has our own unique flaws. The cracks and flaws weeach have make our lives together so very interesting andrewarding. We need to take each

person for

what

he or
