    It doesn't have to be perfect but it does have to make sense to those who read it.

    It's not necessary to be a native English speaker in order to publish in Hubpages. That said, the quality of one's grammar, spelling and punctuation will affect the ratings of one's hubs to some extent.

    However I'm mostly interested in content. And if I can understand what's being said, I'm not picky about linguistic gaffes on the part of writers, for whom English is a second language.

    Putting things into perspective, I don't even have a second language!

    "Fairly" good should do it. If you are not a native speaker your hubs should be written in a way that others can understand clearly. Native speakers should watch their grammar and spelling too.

    English is not my native language so I am striving to write articles  with correct grammars and spellings. I endeavor to make it simple and easy to understand. My concern in writing is more on how people will find the answers to their questions and not how to teach them very good english. Whether you are very good or not as long you follow the HP requirements in article writing you can write.

    Yes, being able to write clearly and without spelling and grammatical errors is an important basic requirement for writing on HP.  Otherwise, they are substandard. You can be banned if you continue to write hubs that have many errors of this type.

    Be sure to run your articles through a spelling and grammar checker, and proofread them, or have someone proofread them for you before publishing.

    No. I think if you write simple, grammatically correct sentences, with correct spellings and punctuated at the right places, it's enough. There is no need for any fancy high sounding words. Your reader should be able to follow what you are trying to convey.

    First of all, what do you mean with "very good english"? If you mean writing in good command of English, then I would give you a YES for an answer. Most members of the Hubpages community are native English speakers. So you really have to double your effort to ensure that your hubs are comprised of correct use of words and grammar.

    However, if you mean "very good english" as in using highfalutin words (that only linguists could understand), I must say that is not really necessary. Try using simpler words and terms. You always have to consider your readers when you write your hubs; that they all come from different backgrounds or walks of life and that they have varying levels of understanding.

    Just do your best. In my opinion I like to see great ideas, and content rather than perfect english.  Just make sure your hubs are understandable. Good Luck!!

    The short answer is "no." If people can understand your writing, and your hubs do not get unpublished by moderators as "substandard," then you can safely continue. ("English" is what the language is called, not "english.")
