Communication is What the Listener Does

As long as you can communicate your message unambiguously and succinctly, you should feel you have achieved your goal.

To improve my English I used to read journal articles or background pieces in foreign newspapers.  These longer articles (usually at least 3,000 words) were often written by articulate journalists and commentators who had an excellent command of English.  

I would read these articles with a dictionary close at hand, so I could immediately look up a word I was unfamiliar with.  I think it helped improve my vocabulary and understanding of the language.

For this Forum, I would not be too concerned about your capability.  Most posts are strewn with spelling and grammatical errors (including mine, no doubt).  Try gaining access to thoughtfully written journals, like the Economist and others with in-depth articles.  The English is usually better than here.


Think smart and base your beliefs on facts and evidence.
Beliefs based on facts and evidence, not rhetoric and rumour.

You must stop using Pakis with us. We aren't the same class like them. We are far more civilized as human beings

Your comments about "Chinglish" is nothing new.  The Chinese had overthrow the Ching Government or Qing Dynasty exactly 100 years or a century ago in 1911 AD because most Chinese hae Chinglish or Qingish things such as their customs, culture, clothes, politics, laws, governing styles, etc....
...


It said that the present censoring rules are similar with the censoring rules in Qing Dynasty.

"Qing Feng Bu Shi Zi, He Gu Luan Fan Shu."
(Ching don't know words, why keep slipping pages.) (Chinglish have the same pronunciation as Wind in Chinese.)
