The Pinch of English forum is conceptualised and designed to cater to the needs of English Language Learners who can ask their questions to teachers, trainers and language experts. The success of this forum purely depends on the members of the forum that can either be learners, teachers, trainers or language experts out there, kindly stick to the simple rules when you post a question or respond to queries. When this discipline and decorum is maintained we can encourage more learners and teachers on board so that they can benefit out of it.
Make the right choice
Now this is the most important part of the forum rule, making the right choice literally means choosing the right section to make your post. The forum is actually divided into sections with titles which you can clearly read and if your query fits under that section go ahead and post your questions. For example you as an individual learner want to clear your doubts on the usage of tenses then you ensure your post is under the Grammar Section, or if your doubt is regarding conversational English or general conversations then make your post under the sentence structures & Dialogues sections.
You can also use the search bar to search if someone has already asked a question on the same topic previously to see if you can find the answers to your questions, this can avoid repetition of the same discussions.
It’s worth the wait:
After creating a post kindly wait for a response don’t be in a hurry as teachers, trainers and language experts are happy to address your queries during their dedicated time for forums. Few questions get immediate answers, some do not get responses at all; you may want to rephrase your question to see if someone is willing to answer it. We are here to help but cannot guarantee responses to your questions.
Let this forum help you:
Be conscious when you create posts ensure you write with no mistakes however if you do make mistakes be open to feedback and correct yourself and ensure you use this platform to learn and not to argue or debate. Understand English is a language and its usage globally cannot be justified picture perfect, the usage may differ but it cannot go wrong.
Post New Questions:
If you created a post under the Grammar section on Past Tense and assume you have received responses and now you want to clarify something on present tense go ahead and create a new post don’t keep asking different questions under the same topic. Creating a new thread is the best way to get your questions answered or else you will annoy people who are trying to help you.
Make Mistakes but don’t use shortcuts:
We would like to reiterate that this is a platform purely designed for you to learn all forms of English as a Language – LSRW, so when you create posts and ask questions use proper punctuations, correct spellings and please avoid short forms or SMS or Whatsapp chat language here. We would not like to see people using “U” instead or “YOU” and “Nite” instead of “Night” and “i” instead of “I”. Please stick to punctuations, spelling rules, grammar rules consciously as this platform is for you to learn.
