Hmm, very flattering on your part Francis.
In fact I never been abroad, not even went to Argentina (the far away I went was to Itajaí); so not even RS I reached...
However, I am kinda bookworm, today every once in a while I can afford books, novels and all stuff. But not was always like this, there were the days that I bought books with missing pages, dog-eared, yellowed and all that jazz.
The first contact I had with the language was in the fifth grade, then as everybody I met pronouns and verb to be...
As my English was not directed to any particular goal, it is a mess; because sometimes I mix Brit words, American lingo, whatever comes first to my mind.
Moreover, my grammar is not that good; I tell you, I am lax in the study of grammar.
Anyway, it is flattering that a guy like me has your effort acknowledged.
It´s my pleasure, then help others out as much as I can; because I remember myself and my struggle to improve my language skills.
I do know that there is a long way to go, but I am not hurring up; I´m taking my time.
All in all, thanks to the coming of this PC and the discovering of some good sites like this one; I have had a boost in my communication skills.
But I am aware that exist plenty of good teachers out there, and I only would venture to teach in a state like this (here) that need badly of them (but the cost x benefit ratio is disappointing, to be honest).
Only that I am very busy, my job sucks! a very demanding work, with tons of tasks all day and everyday. On top of all that, I have 3 children with big differences in age.
So, I juggle a tight schedule; I wouldn´t never manage pry out even a minute to teach someone else.
However, as I am an English studious, it´s my cup of tea; my hobby.
Good luck in your enterprise, dude. And count on me, at least for moral support.
