PLEASE NOTE: this particular section no longer receives questions.


Good day! I am preparing for a job interview. Can you please correct my grammar or change something so that it will sound good. Thank you!

I am Rham Ferrer. I am 24 years old. I graduated in April 2008 with BS in Nursing. After college I decided not to immediately persue nursing because I wanted to experience working in different jobs before I settle down into a career. I was projectionist at cinemas then I became cashier in supermarket. In 2010, I decided to begin my career so I took the board exam. Soon after I passed the board exam I took IVT Training and then I passed my resume in hospitals.

What should it be: "asthma attacks" or "astham attack"?

Ola's answer:

Definitely "asthma attacks."

There is no such thing "astham," not in English, anyhow.

I'm Desperate. Please help me

Hi. My grammar is a major issue for me moving up the ladder in Corporate America. When I speak or write instructions my audience tells me I don't express a complete thought.

I produce quite a bit of documentation for my occupation and having them clear and concise can take my paycheck to a whole new level.

Don't get me wrong I do well financially but I know I can do so much better!!!

Is there some kind of class I can pay for that can teach me this?

Ola's answer:

Hi,

I totally understand what you are saying.

I can't really recommend a specific "grammar teaching" class, since I am not familiar with one.

However, I can recommend a very good workbook on the subject.

You see, many people (including natives) are struggling with grammar because they are missing its real purpose: communication.

(More on that in this article: Easy English Grammar)

Now, you seem to be ahead of them, since your goal in improving your grammar is making your communication very clear and precise. And you are definitely right. Being clear and precise can make a world of a difference.

In my experience, the best book to help achieve that goal is the following book:
Grammar and Communication for children.

It's called "for children" but I find it a bit inappropriate, since this book is very helpful for adults as well.

It goes over all the important elements of English grammar you need to know to communicate easily and effectively, and it doesn't add any unnecessary complicated data.

It also contains illustrations, exercises and practice.

After working with it, you will probably get a whole new perspective on how to construct your sentences, not to mention your improved skills ;)

Anyway, I hope you will find this data useful.

You can get the workbook right here from Amazon:

Grammar and Communication for children/English learners

Let me know if you have any further questions :)

Is this correct?
by: ash

"Addicted watching this k-drama."

Ola's answer:

No, it isn't correct. The subject is missing.

It should probably be something like this:

"I am addicted to watching this k-drama."
