Hi, as a non-native English speaker, I'm always on the lookout for new ways of improving my grammar and syntax. I read books like: I after E except after C or Eats, Shoots and Leaves, as well as general English for beginners/advanced/academic writing books. But I'm still not 100% there. I'm flustrated since I've been actively studying English for about 15 years, yet I'm still making mistakes! Is there anything else I can do? I'm on the verge of 'giving up' this writing thing I have going, because I just found out that my first published article had some mistakes in it Things like missing 'the', or messed up tenses. What a dissaster :/ Finally I managed to get an article published and now, if anyone even remembers my name, it will be associated with grammatical mistakes.
