English Language...

I noticed that many readers wander about my English language! Is my English that good??? , Mr. Ramzi for example, sent me a nice comment, (thank you Mr. Ramzi),:
Hey sunshine,I've just started reading your old blogs. I've been reading your relatives blogs and I enjoy reading all about your family. But I have to ask you a question. You're vocabulary is abnormally advanced. English is my first language and I would never use some of the words you do. Did you learn these words in class or do you look them up in a thesaurus?
Ramzi…

Well, in Iraq pupils start to take English lessons from the fifth class in primary school. However, my background in English comes from my family support, we believe that English is a universal language, & it’s the way to contact with people, in the other countries
They brought me a computer since I was 8 years old (it’s rare in Iraq), my mom brought me programs to improve my English.
When I was in the sixth class primary school, my grandma brought me a book (365 Bed Time stories), & that helped me to learn more words.
Now a day I am reading a novel for Shakespeare, (Oliver twist).
I am interested in seeing reports & programs in English,(48 Hours,60 minutes,20/20,Inside edition, 24 hours ,& Oprah) .I keep asking my mother
About the meanings of the new words, (I was always the anxious, nosy little girl).
That’s why I don’t face any difficulty in scholastic curriculum.
I will tell you my secret, I also use a dictionary to help me find the proper words while writing my blog’s post (shshshsh, keep my little secret).
With out the English language I wouldn’t have you my dear friends.
Tack care of your English background …
Sunshine…

Sunshine, your English is incredible for someone who doesn't speak it as a native language. Here in American there's no stressing of foreign languages to the extent that its important we know it.

For instance I took three years of Spanish, passed the classes, and that was enough. Now I don't have to take anymore and I've forgotten all I know. The older you get, the harder it is to learn. Your family has gotten it right by starting you early. At only 14 your English grammar is much better than many 14 year old Americans.

P.S. Thank you for the nice e-mail you sent me last Monday. I'm sorry I didn't respond immediately but I've falling behind on my work. But let me say its an honor reading your blog, not only are you mature intellectually for your age but emotionally as well. I'm not sure I could be as well-adjusted as you seem to be if I lived in Iraq right now. Keep safe and keep blogging.

Hey Sunshine, you said that you watch those tv shows, I wanted to know, how do you get the channels to watch those shows, do you get it on a satellite that shows American programs?

Also, do you get the to watch all the shows on some American channels, or do you just get some shows? I'm just curious.

Sunshine I just found your bog today and have read your past post. I can't tell you how much enjoyed reading you blog. I am from United States and I'm for what you are having to live through. But I pray that it will get better for you and your country.
I also noticed you do a lot of handmade work. I also do a lot. I knitt and do stain glass and handmade beads. Is that what you meant when you said you spin beads? I love doing my handmade work. Right now I am mostly knitting. I have made purses, scarves, and sweaters.
I don't have a blog site. Have been thingking about creating one.
Anyway I pray for you and your family. Things will get better one day.

Hi Sunshine,

I've talked with you real-time, and I can tell you your English is good even when you don't have time to consult the dictionary!

It's always hard when you learn a second language - I remember for me learning French I was always afraid of saying something dumb or mixing up words, so I was nervous to talk at first. You're doing quite well, I think.

I am very impressed with your english and your grammar. Also, just a little bit envious...(not a good character trait), as I wish I knew another language besides english. My grand parents were italian but they did not want to teach us italian. They said we were in America and should only speak english. Perhaps they tried too hard to become Americans and tried to loose their Italian ways...It's hard to say.

Your family must and should be proud of your accomplishments. Good luck to you.

I'm a teacher in Canada, and I can honestly say that your English (spelling, grammar and vocabulary) is WAY better than the teenagers here who have been speaking English all their life. You should be an English teacher.

I just found your blog today and love it!

Best wishes.

Sometimes it happens that for the same ailment different treatments are offered by different doctors. This confuses the patients to a great deal. Which treatment to go for, which doctor to follow etc, etc. Under these circumstances people can refer to the patient info sites where they can get all the information regarding the disease, its treatments, prices etc.
