    I write in the English language as a foreign language.I do this like a foreigner; because first I love the English language. Second  I feel myself free to express myself in the English language in order  to exchange culture and ideas born from my personality as a foreigner;  with others who do have different culture and way of living.
    From this fact I can never compete natives English in their mother tongue language:my English is just correct.However I can compete them towards a huge amount of ideas hidden in me and which I transmit in full sincerity.
    In spite of the fact that the hubs that I wrote in this way; I have not succeeded yet to get featured ones.
    Please feel free to give me advice in order to promote my hubs to featured ones.

      The problem is that Hubpages is promoting itself as an information, magazine-style site. It needs to present a professional 'face' to Google and the other search engines. It isn't a place for self-expression. It simply cannot afford to display articles that aren't written in grammatically acceptable English because it will be penalised.

      Best advice for someone like you who has lots of ideas to share is to set up your own site... Wordpress or similar. If you purchase your own domain, you can publish whatever you want. You'll also be able to add advertising or offer your skills. I do it... many of us here have our own sites.

      So that all of your hubs will be visible and available to anyone who wants to read them, go to your profile page.  Click on "Edit Profile."  Go to almost the bottom of that page where it says "Show only Featured Hubs on my profile:"  Click on the 'NO' box and then all of your hubs will be visible again on your profile page.

      You do need to improve your sentence structure and learn verb tenses and correct grammar a little better, but I was able to understand the hub that is currently showing on your profile page, and understand quite a bit of it.  So I think with a little effort you could do quite well.  Find someone who can help you with your English and then study our Learning Center here on HubPages.  Good luck!

    Hbey k:  See if you can find an English native speaker to edit your hubs for you.  Good Luck!
