I'm kind of bad at spelling in English, I tend to confuse "a", "e" and "i" (I blame Spanish for this)


What about you?

It's not you, it's English  

Here's my confession: I hate grammar, so I tend to avoid working on it, even though I know I really shouldn't. 

Now that I got it off my chest, I feel better.

I sometimes do the same. If I am not focused I would spell some words the way they sound.

For me, before I was so confused why the syllable in the word 'transportation' pronounced as ta or te while the syllable 'trans' is pronounced as 'trans' or the letter 'a' there pronounced as a as an 'apple'. Also with other words that have the same pattern of how it should be pronounced. If only I have the chance to ask the original creator/author of those specific words, I'll be asking about why and why they made such a very confusing reading pattern. LOL hhahahhha

I am so bad at using the correct preposition. (Even writing this, I got confused if it's "I am so bad [at] [in] [with] using.." HAHAHA

Everyday is a learning journey. Keep going!

 I have a jersey accent so, in my opinion, my English sounds funny. When it comes to Spanish I often fail horribly with the rolling "r" sound. It's quite funny but im working on it lol XD

Confession: I am terrible at keeping up with the learning to begin with. I have trouble staying on track and sticking with learning long enough for me to learn anything.
