    I'm going off on a tangent, but also word meanings can be lost in translation as well (as it's been touched on in the previous posts), this is just as important as grammar.

    For example, in this post, I grind my teeth whenever somebody says "Dear". To me, it's like somebody saying "Hi love/babe/gorgeous/sweetheart/etc.", something I wouldn't expect to find in this forum!

    I can't be the only one, can I?

    Free ebooks are available for download and many included are related to improving vocabulary and grammar. Wish I knew that before I paid a fortune on my books

    This could be time consuming, but very helpful in long term. One way to sort of learn how to put whats on your mind on writing is reading. Try to look for articles on topics you wish to write in the future. Although this does not intend to copy their style or whatever. This is just so you would see the different kinds of attack they use to make their readers feel exactly how writers wanted them.

    Does anyone have any good online resources or techniques on how to notice grammatical errors, and how I can do away with them? A lot of the writing I may need to do in the future is very expressive and I'll need to be able to show exactly what's in my head through my writing; something I find extremely difficult to do now.
    Do yourself a favor and just send me a private message with any grammatical questions and I will be happy to help you out with them. Having taken English and Grammer AP classes, I bet I could help!

    Did you think about going back to school to take some courses to improve you skills? That is always helpful

    Hi

    I read some opinion in this topic. I do not agree above ideal. We can find out some articles at about.com, I think that it is useful for our community.

    I always read aloud to myself then let it sit for a day and repeat. You can catch so many mistakes this way.

    Well...practice overcomes all deficiencies what they are.
    King's English is good advice, additionally you should get help from online dictionaries for increasing your vocabulary, it also works.

    I've found that the only thing to fix grammar is lots of reading and watching the language being used in Tv/Movies / whatever.
