   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.

 

 

    Best regards.

    PP.
