I am looking for native English-speakers - or people who master English .
My goal is to translate french texts into English within 30-days (and beyond ) in order to improve my grammar . But i need a native speaker to correct my grammar and syntax so that i could see where are my mistakes and whether i have progressed or not . In exchange i would correct your french texts too if you will , all this with seriousness and application.

For those interested , please PM me .

Give it a little bit of time, a few hours isn't much time on an internet forum ;).

Anyways, you might also try sites like lang8 and italki, which have sections devoted purely to text corrections.
Otherwise, I'd be happy to correct some on occasion if you were to post them here. I just can't currently commit to
being able to correct all of them.

Thank you for your advice !
I have tried Lang-8 , it is 8 days since my last text has been posted but hasn't been corrected yet , i am looking for more regular corrections .
Anyway thanks for offering your help .

Here is the text .


Nun unaware of her pregnancy !.
(The first part has been corrected , here is the second one ) .

According to the social worker who met with her , the freshly mum is fullfilled . The New York Times newspaper reports that sister Roxana Rodriguez alledgedly told her to " feel better as a mum than as a nun" ." I don't feel guilty whatsoever , and i defintely intend to keep and raise him " , "It's a gift from God " . "I am - however , worried about the media impact of this affair ". "I will never be able to go back to Salvador , let alone to Rieti " she added .

Back to secular life !

According to Italian newspapers , the father of the child is alledgedly a former youth beau of Roxana Rodriguez . She supposedly had encountered him when she was going back to Salvador on Marsh , in order to have her passport redo . The man has not heard of the child yet .

Hello. This is three weeks late (because I signed up recently) but I'm willing to help if
you still need it. :) I'm fluent in English and also a beginner in French.
