Since you said that you don't have any ish' with being corrected, I could add a few improvement suggestions.


The gerundio of utilizar would be utilizando (U-T-I-...). Just like EN "util" and "to utilize".


And the usual way of laughing in Spanish would be "jaja". Because the J is pronounced, but the H is a silent letter.


However, nowadays there also are cases of words with an H that is pronounced as a J. Like "hacker".


Important: These small corrections are about some specific words and phrases only. As for anything beyond, I keep silent. And that silence neither means that I state that everything else has correct grammar etc., nor that I state the opposite. Among the reasons for doing so is that I didn't reach the level of Active C2 Spanish Knowledge yet.


An example is that sometimes, I am not sure yet whether a Spanish native would prefer to use "soy" or "estoy". So I didn't say anything about your use of "soy" here. Maybe others, like Jess, would be able to answer instead.

"muchias gracias" -> muchas gracias.


"comento" -> The one I know is comentario only.


"nosotros son" -> nosotros somos. "son" is for ellos/ellas/ustedes.


"Como lejos son tu en aprendezante la lengua? :)"


"aprendezante" -> (el) aprendizaje. 


"son" -> eres (or even estás, because of the "ser vs. estar" difference. The same could apply above as well. If estar would fit better to your use of nosotros there, then it would be estamos.)


"tu" as in "¿Y tú?" (and similar phrases) is written with an accent.


That said, I personally would rephrase the entire sentence.

But I also would speak in a similar way (while paying even more attention to verb conjugations ;)) when starting with any language. I am not among those who reject the idea of Tarzan Speak. There are too many examples of people who used it as a bridge to becoming better at whatever they are learning.

'Muchias Gracias' and 'Te Amo' are the two famous phrases that always comes into my mind from my favorite childhood spanish teleserye.
