Perhaps you should consider every language by its beauty but not by its necessity. Indeed you have lots of improvements to make in your wrriten English :) (when you introduce a topic or a statement there's a phrase to put in which can be used with partial inversion :P)

I believe that here our points of view differ: I think that it's better to be corrected by someone than making the same mistake a few times.

I think it is better not to correct anyone if you have not been specifically asked to do so. Anyway, I find it rather peculiar when non-natives fancy themselves being the "style-gurus" in English. Sorry, but I have my doubt about the quality of your advice. I heard the opinions of natives themselves and if there are some problems with my English, you are not qualified enough to find them (not to mention: to correct them)

Presumably you have met those so called 'style-gurus' and you think that I'm one of them, but I'm not. If you were offended by my message then I'm sincerely sorry.

I may say the same: I talk to natives almost everyday using skype/MSN, they correct my flaws and I don't make a fuss out of it.
Sorry, but I have my doubt about the quality of your advice.
Mind me showing where have I imposed my opinion on you?

the sky, if you wanted to ask "что же не так с точкой?" then you ought to write "What's with the full stop thing?" (that's a GenAme variant of asking)
Thanks. I'm glad anyway I've right used the article. Because I always fear to use it wrong.

they correct my flaws

If I were you, then I could jump on this glaring example of word misuse here. Those foreigners certainly are not able to correct your flaws (=vices), just the mistakes. But I will not follow your bad example and I will leave your English alone

they correct my flaws and I don't make a fuss out of it.

You don't see logic problem here, do you? You are corrected by native speakers, while you (a non-native) try to correct me, unprompted - and you expect me to react to your pitiful attempts at corrections in the same way as you react to the correction by the natives? Who gave you the damn right to correct me and feel smug about it?

Mind me showing where I have imposed my opinion on you?

oh, shall I feel grateful for it? :o

I see no misuse there because the word flaw can be used to describe imperfections in something untangible.

First of all watch your language. Yet again you perceive things in a strange way: I had no intentions in seeing the same reaction from you, I am trying to be friendly here while you are using offence for defending yourself (clever tactics they are).
I can, from this point, assume that you have doubts in the educational system of universities in Lithuania because you are constantly repeating that my English is at a low level, thank you.

oh, shall I feel grateful about it? :o
Care to use a translator for once to get a clear picture of WHAT am I trying to tell you?

Who gave you the damn right to correct me and feel smug about it?
Oh yes, of course! I keep having orgasms when I correct others, what a brilliant idea.

Try asking your friends next time, you might be surprised

I am trying to be friendly here

I asked you specifically not to correct me, yet you insist on doing just that. What is so "friendly" about it? :down: I would say it was rather downright hostile

Switching topic is a favorite tool of a seasoned demagogue. No, sweetheart, I do not "constantly repeat" anything about your English, I couldn't care less. There is a fundamental difference between somebody's ability to use English himself and to be proficient enough to be able to correct the others. Sorry, but you are not quite there, at least not for me. Your English might be ok, but that does not make you qualified to teach me English. Do you see my point?

Aha. I know that it's good, others didn't complain so you fail.

From the point you wrote that sentence I did not correct you, or will you say that I did?

Amazing, I'm a seasoned demagogue, I'm more than amused.
I don't care how you judge my English, I know that it's above than average, I get normal grades and lecturers are fine with it. I may not be qualified but I can I'm studying English at university and you're not (I can recall that your main was Economics, but not English Philology), that's the differences and that's the point.

I fail at what?! :o I suggested you ask your friends about the correct usage of word "flaw", nothing else. Shall I subtitle my texts in English for you if google-translate is failing you and you do not comprehend the easiest things?

Bla-bla-bla. Next step would be to start measuring penises. Chill out, man. Specially for you a small musical circuit-breaker :green:

Unfortunately it does not save you from embarrassing mistakes:

It is called major, not "main", sweetheart. Just trying to be "friendly" ;)

I did ask them, they reply was: yes, it can be used like that in that sentence.

There are no majors in Lithuania, only mains, same applies to Britain. Thanks for sweetheart, it really warms up my heart <3.

But I don't want to measure my penis, I'm fine with it. Btw, I love that song.

Just for your information: "mains" are in the socket, not at the university. probably, you are just too smart to know such things

И сколько невежества у человека, что всё время использует грубейшие слова. Вроде человек он адекватный, а реакция как у (вырезано). (невольно напрашивается вопрос, как такой неуравновешенный человек мог получить права модератора причём глобального?) Или ментальность у людей настолько разная, что любая попытка сделать что-нить хорошего воспринимаются в штыки, а?
