      I don't mind helping you with your writing.  Please contact me and tell me which ones to proofread.  I'm looking forward to see your writing.

        Whimsical chair - since you've never published a hub, what are your credentials? Also, since you have no history here, how would the OP know that you don't have an ulterior motive or have good grammar yourself? Maybe settle into the community a bit more and write your own hubs before offering aid to other new members.

        Nikmaya62 - As WE said, it is a difficult job to proofread, and if you plan to write a lot of hubs, would take a lot of time. The amount of work involved, at an hourly rate, could go into the hundreds of dollars.

        Hubbers are a friendly lot who are willing to give you some general guidelines and help, but I doubt any will want to spend hours giving you free proof reading.

        Based on your post alone (which I can see basic three grammatical errors in) it may be a difficult job. Might be an idea to either read more in English to get a better grasp of the language or see if you have a friend who can proof read for you.

          OK WryLilt,,, For my better English I will try to read many hubs and watch the usage of English,, I am sorry if I wrong to ask you to correct my grammar errors. And you are right, before I write more hubs I have to improve my capability to use English so that the reader will not give a negative rate to my hubs. I am very glad you always give me some suggestions. Thanks a lot.

      Though that's not grammar so much as usage.

    This forum is not really suited for proofreading hubs. There are so many rules about grammar that it is impossible to learn it through a forum.

    Some people may be able to give you suggestions and an idea of the quality of your work, but don't expect anyone here to proofread them for you; errors will probably remain, and it is up to you to find some way to detect and fix them.

      Thanks Website Examiner, I am sorry if I do that. I realize that It needs a lot of time to be able to use English correctly. But I still need your suggestion. Should I write a hub although I still make a little grammar error or I have to study English first? I am afraid my grammar errors will make the reader bored and than they give a negative rate to my hubs.

        Do the best that you can. Writing in imperfect English is OK as long as people are able to understand what you mean. Writing hubs is also good practice. Meanwhile, find ways to improve your writing skills. Once you have improved, go back and revise the hubs. What else can you do...

          WSebsite Examiner is right - the best approach - just write hubs, if they are good content and interesting the grammar etc is not so important.

              Actually, when I was new here, I got a lot of very helpful information from someone who did not write perfect English. Since things were somewhat simplified, it was easier for me to understand than some people who wrote perfect English but used a lot of technical jargon.

      I think so. May be that is my reason to write many hubs although my English is not much better.
