ESL sub-forum

Postby Coëmgenu » Thu Jan 05, 2017 10:10 pm

It might be useful to have an ESL (English as a Second Language) sub-forum for people who have difficulties with English, or are in the process of learning. People could post there for help on how to properly grammatically frame what they are trying to say in their posts.

Just an idea I thought might be valuable given that some peoples' participation and ability to critically engage on this site is limited by their ability to form grammatically cogent English sentences, despite having an obvious grounding in one tradition or another of Theravāda discourse.
神足示現者,
世尊隨其所應,而示現入禪定正受,陵虛至東方,作四威儀,
行、住、坐、臥,入火三昧,出種種火光,青、黃、赤、白、
紅、頗梨色,水火俱現, 或身下出火,身上出水,身上出火,
身下出水,周圓四方亦復如是。

Not necessarily a second language, some are more literate than others and some post in an elitist fashion, I had to Google Cogent. :namaste:

Google has been a really useful tool for me, too. A richer vocabulary is something from which we can all benefit. :reading:
