Well that changes everything! We all know that time travelers are immune to grammar and spelling. Due to the ever-changing temporal coordinates, there's no way to verify a reference point and thus, cannot be corrected; what with convention shifts and yesterday actually being experienced as next week and all.
Are you going through menopause?

Funny to some, not so funny to me.

Offering to teach English lessons when you cant differentiate between today, tomorrow, has, have, plural and singular, on top of piss poor punctuation is just committing fraud.

On top of that arrogant attitude, I wish her potential student the very best of luck.




Yea, the view from up my high horse today is fabulous.

Haha. If you were going through menopause, you'd understand.

"I had a situation tomorrow" is my new motto.

Funny that, I always concentrate on making my message as clear as possible to my intended audience, rather than worry about saving a few seconds of typing.

Sorry, but I think the 'native English speaker' is just grossly overrated. There are people I know who write "your welcome" and cannot differentiate between 'there' and 'their'. But....sigh...they come stamped "Native English Speaker" and I don't.

Bad grammar is just bad grammar, native speaker or not.

I think "overrated" is rather over stating the case. Tho their could of bin some think they're.

While there are crap "Native English Speakers", you stand a better chance of good English from someone who is a native speaker. There is a question of which version of English. For example, prepone - to bring a meeting forward - is perfectly valid in some parts of the world, but very odd to here in the UK.

I had an American English teacher. He was a great teacher but couldn't spell. (And not just words like honour, colour, sulphur).

Indeed. Reading skills are also sometimes lacking. Did you notice the word "conversational" ?

Re: can i give private tuitions?

I call this the thread of the Day because of it's pure entertainment value.

But Seriously. Here is the OPs question which sounds to me like a YES / NO question with some extra helpful information such as 'If you have B Permit..... or If you earn above XX then you should..."

Hello friends......

One of my friends is asking me to give english tuitions to her daughter. I am on B permit. Is it ok fr me to just Start teaching her ??
This thread has now turned into a response to the following:

Hello friends......

I'm of the non-native speaking English persons who would humbly like to teach of my many friends children some amounts of HingLish. Can I humbly be teaching her all my learnings? A thousand thank yous and may a million fleas infect your arm pits...

ummmmm......... HELLO????
