About me

I'm happy to correct articles for others, even though recently I haven't posted too many myself. I've wanted to learn a bit more Spanish and French first, but lately I haven't had enough time to practise. I tend to make most of my corrections in English to a British style, since this is where I'm from.
The corrections that I make are mostly coloured blue, and important or obvious errors may get coloured in red sometimes.
Since the choice on Lang-8 is to either make corrections to a sentence or to declare it "perfect", I tend to make corrections to a level of English that I'd consider to be very good from a native-speaker.
I probably make sentence corrections to a good standard of native English.
My preference on this site is to make corrections, rather than making a high number of friends.
If a writer wants me to change my style of corrections, such as only correcting the most important errors, I would try to accomodate such a request,
