 hi abdulhafeez don't be so rude to your self, i can be your friend

well hi xhuljana.... how r u dude?

I would like to have a talent in football. If I were a talented footballer i will be able to play in my favourite team "Pas Giannina".

My favourite activity this time is hiking.I started walking on mountain Parnitha  six years before. I like this exercise because i have the oppurtunity to escape from the routine of the city life.The country side calms me and i improve my fitness.I have to say that very few people like this hobby in my country.

Hello Rahobh,
I'm very glad you are finding the website so useful.
I'm not surprised you find English grammar difficult, but remember that the most important thing (unless you want to be a linguist) is that you can communicate successfully. If you can understand and be understood by others, then you are a success as a language learner. Grammar is a tool, not the goal.
Best wishes,
Adam
