Hi everyone, I finished an essay of 847 words about my musical autobiography. The essay does not have to be formal, but since I am not a native english speaker I would to check its grammar and word choice. Can someone help me? Thanks.

    This is great context for the essay. You should post your file (use the Attach File button below the text entry box), and that way when someone comes along who has some time, the file is right there. What's your deadline, when do you need it back (to you) by?

    Ah, I don't think I can help, though I'd love to. I have to take off and won't be back for a couple of hours. Your margin is a bit slim! But post the essay. You have a good chance of catching someone else who has time.

    I'll check back in at about 7:00 my time, 10:00 your time. If you've not found anyone to look it over, I'll run through it quickly. Ciao . . .

    Sure thing. You sound pretty fluent. Check in later then . . .

    I try to be fluent, but it is really difficult for me to write in English. I will be waiting for your response, even if it is at 11:54 pm of my time.

    hi, so I was reading over your essay and I think it looks good. There's a couple of missing commas and grammatical errors that can be fixed, but overall I don't think you have to worry

    I'm a little confused on what you mean by "Although I have never had good qualifications as a singer."

    I basically do not know how to sing.

    Can you please send me the errors that you found?

    okay, so I'd say something like "Although I have never thought I was a good singer" or "Although I have never been called a good singer"

    also, is the last paragraph part of the essay? "Music is a frusterated passion I have..."

    it's just in a different spacing, so I was wondering.

    I need to change the format of the text, and add some information such as name of the teacher, the class, etc... But I would do that after I checked it very well.

    Thank you so much MSMR. I see that you change a lot of stuff, that what I was expecting before.

    anytime! feel free to change anything back - i was just fixing it so it sounded smoother to me, but it's your writing!

    Sure, but it is certainly true that if you (my case) are not a native english speaker, some things sounds awkward, and the grammar is awful. I have checked some papers in Spanish and I know what I am telling you... =)
