Hi everyone,
I never plays any kinds of music instruments. But I love them due to their different melodies. But I have been interested in piano. I hope one day in my life I can take a piano lessons. I feel too romantic to play a piano with the song I love. Nice day.

Good evening regarding when I am writing this sentence.
In my opinon this very good place for learning english language,but how  can I know that did I write something good grammatically on post comment board.
Can somebody to give me advice about it.

Dear Rodoljub,
I'm afraid the only way to find out if what you have written is grammatical is to get a teacher etc. to check it. We have thousands of users on LearnEnglish and we don't have enough teachers to provide this service for all of them.
You might find that another learner will give you advice about your language if you ask.
Best wishes,

Hi members,
- I´m a musician´s son. My father was a pianist and musical instruments at my home was an ordinary thing, I mean, there were piano, acoustic guitar, keyboard and so on. I started to play guitar when I was  child. I was 8 years old. I heard a lot of instrumental music like Jazz, Rumba, Mambo and so on but the style of music wich influenced me was "Bossa Nova" a Brazilian style of music with a large influence of Jazz. It have a complex harmony with a beautiful melody. Bossa Nova is enjoyed around the World since 60´s. There are a lot of famous Bossa Nova´s songs. The Girl of Ipanema is one of them. Many important singers around the World recorded it in different languages. At moment I use to show my musical talent playing and singing in Pubs. This is my second professional activities.
Best Regards

Hi Jawaid,
Pls check, perhaps this kind of stuff that suit your need but I can't guarantee that it will work for you.

Hello Jawaid,
I don't speak flawless English, so I can't help you! I have never met anyone who has perfect English, so I think you might be too ambitious...
