goOgLing about EngLish GRammAR

My English grammar is not that good. I live now in a country where they have their own language, Dutch language. My Dutch grammar is better than my English. Here in Europe, they use British English which I think the best English in the world. British and American English are different in some spellings, like the word "favorite and favourite". I like to hear someone speaks in British English, I like the pronunciation.
I speak Dutch everyday. I speak Bisaya to my family in the Philippines and Filipana friends here when they call me up. So, sometimes I am confused with my grammar especially the prepositions and conjunctions. Occasionally I look up the words on the internet to check how to use it. I immediately google the words which I do not know. It is sometimes difficult to compose an article. I think, the more I write the more my grammar will be better. I can compare to the English speaking countries where I think easier for them to write posts. Inspite of my difficulty in writing is still write to let my family and friends know our activities here in the Netherlands.

Your English grammar is very good, and you have a great command of the language. I am impressed with your language abilities! Bisaya, Dutch AND English-this is amazing to me! I am learning Persian, but even though I've been studying it for 2 years I don't think I am any where near be able to write a blog in Persian.

I think you're right that the more you write in English the better you will get at it. I am looking forward to reading about your life in the Netherlands. I always say that I am "fake Dutch" because my name is Dutch and I have blonde hair and blue eyes, but my family is not from Holland at all. ;)

About this Blog

I make this blog for foreigners who will live in this country, THE NETHERLANDS. Foreigners who are engaged or married they have to learn a lot of things about their new home like the culture, architectures, landscape, government, dikes etc. Especially the Dutch language which is very important in their social life. It is very difficult if they cannot communicate with other people. Most people speak Dutch, only few speaks English.
For visitors and readers, this will give you an idea what this country is. This small country ranks no. 5 in the economic stability in EUROPE. Their architectures like palaces, castles, dikes, ports (air and sea) are amazing.
Their culture is very interesting.
