Oh My - JC

Oh, dear. Someone on MT Stars said you are not ESL. Either way, you really need to take some courses in communicating the English language in writing. Not just because of MT work, but in general.

Somewhere along the line on a job application, there will be a little narrative section where you describe yourself or why you'd be good for a position. Or, there will be a cover letter needed written by you in your own words. You will not come across as someone who "gets it" when it comes to the English language. You have no concept of periods, commas, or where you have not used, and the reader gets confused on what the heck you are talking about. You also need help in using past tense.

I would sit with a retired teacher and have them evaluate your writing, then get some tutoring from them; or check out if you have a community center/cultural center that has some basic courses in English.

In one of your notes where someone showed concern, you stated your writing is just as good as everybody else's on here. That is not so. Not everyone is a Grammar Queen on here, but I can certainly tell they're educated in English communication, and I don't tell them anything about their mistakes because they're simply not important.

Not being mean, but if you're going to be out in the working world and have a decent job, you'll need to fix that.
