Grammarly

I’m surprised by the good service of the browser app from http://www.grammarly.com – it’s not easy for me to write English because I’m German. I started to learn English by writing a daily blog. In English, because in my hometown the politicians did not allow to use the title “COME TOGETHER” for a local music festival. They forced the musicians to use the German language. Since I write consistently English. And I’m happy because I noticed: I have readers and they do understand me. I have to admit that I’m surprised because I’m writing a special “Frizzenglish”.

  3. I think it’s brilliant that you blog in English – Frizzenglish or not. We English are generally so poor at speaking others’ languages. I feel it is rather bad mannered that we don’t try harder. So danke schoen, dear Frizz.

  8. Frizz your English is superb. I have about 3 German words that’s all. You should be very proud of yourself, its one thing to speak another language but to write it, especially one as crazy as English . . .
