Eduardo,

I would like to suggest two very minor improvements in your post.

The first is "onlines" should be singular ie. "online" .
The second is "help" should be "helps" .

Otherwise very nicely done.

Hi everyone!

Well, my better discovery was English Experts because I don't get remaining no reading it everyday! I love searching here expressions and reading answers that help me a lot.

Thank you EE! :D

But during last year I have been others descoveries like Twitter, LiveMocha and some friends who I couldn't know yet.

Other discovery was knowing that I can learn English and any idiom that I want through internet. :mrgreen: The internet is the biggest discovery of the humankind.

I'm sorry if I was any mistake here, ok!?
If anyone correct my answer, I'll be very happy!
Thank you again!

Bye

Hello,

Without doubt, English Experts is one of my greatest discoveries online, because here I find plenty of interesting people who want to learn not only English, but make new friends too. Since I created an account on EE forum, my English has become better, thanks to EE blog and helps from forum's friends.

Another great discovery were online games, who times ago I was crazy for, but because I am with a lot of tasks there is no time for play them. :?

Hugs!

Rafael,

Your first paragraph is very good with only one minor suggestion ... "and help from my friends on the forums."

I would like to make several changes in the second paragraph; "Other great discoveries were online games that in the past I was addicted to, but recently I have too many tasks to complete each day, and I no longer have time to play them."

Please compare my suggestions and let me know if you understand them or if you have any questions.

By the way, I have noticed a marked improvement in your writing recently, keep up the good work.

Bill,

I appreciate your words about my writting, it gives more confidence to keep up the good work!

Let me understand the reasons of your suggestions. You suggested the change: "... and help from my friends on the forums". I am able to see you are correct and I want to see why my version is awkward. I wrote: "... and helps from forum's friends". In my version, does the forum have friends? Because if it does, my version is outright wrong. Well, you understood what I tried to write despite my confused phrase. ;)

In the second paragraph, if I want to use the term "another"? In this case, must I write "Another were online games..."?

Thank you so much!!

Rafael,

As you wrote,
"... helps from forum's friends..." does not make since as an inanimate object can not have friends, and your sentence states the "forum's friends" .

"Another" is singular, and "games" are plural as is "other", therefore you may use; "another discovery is a game", or "other discoveries are games".

I hope this explains your questions, thank you for asking.

Bill,

Now I understand my mistake about the first question. From this time, I will pay attention to this rule.

I did not write correctly the second question. What was supposed to be proposed is the sentence: "another was online games". In this case, is there any misunderstood? Since I think another is referring to discovery (in singular) and has its meaning. To be honest, I am not sure if it makes sense, but in Portuguese it makes sense!

Again, thanks for your reply and sorry about the wrong asking!

Rafael,

In order to prevent confusion I would like the word discovery injected if that is what you are referring to, such as: "Another discovery was online games ... ".

I know English can be confusing, I have been studying and learning it for some 66 years and I still make mistakes and get confused sometimes, and Portuguese is almost impossible for me. If you do not mind, will you carefully read your last post and see if you can rewrite it to improve the syntax and tense, after which I will "take a shot at it" if necessary.

Idiom:
Take a shot at it. See: http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/take+a+shot+at

Bill,

I guess understood last post (as you wrote) as first post ...

Here is my rewrite:

"Without doubt, English Experts has been on of my greatest discoveries online, since there I have found plenty of interesting people who want to make new friends as much as learn English. Afterwards my account on EE forum was created, I have improved my English skills, and it has been possible due to helps from friends on the forum.

Another discovery was online games, which I had been addicted to, but recently I have so many tasks to do all day long, therefore I have no longer time to play them."

This is my best for now!
