I will analyze two of your games for every time you correct one of my english articles. Right now there are three.
This is the link: http://chess4real.com/
Clean and sweet:
You: A native speaker, preferably with certain education, will read my article and correct my weird grammar mistakes and whatever pop ups. Then, you send me a document with the corrections.
Me: I will analyze two of your games: you sent me the files in pgn, and I will include variations and recommendations to improve your game, words and moves.
You all can send me an email over here or to email@example.com
Thanks for reading this!
This is a really nice idea.
too bad i am terrible with english.
You could be shooting your self in the foot there. How will you know if they've corrected it or made it worse ?
Some one who doesn't even know the differnce between who and whom could take up your offer and totally hash your articles.
My suggestion might be you just use the computer to sort it out. Such as using Microsoft Office Word or something like that .
or find a english teacher here.
well how will we know about the analysis?
(this is meant to be funny, not mean. no one should take this seriously).
Well, guys, I can read perfectly english. I can tell when SOMEONE wrote something well, or not. Another thing is produce myself the speech, is different.
I have used the computer, word, google, etc, but is the same as me, except it has more vocabulary.
@Planeden, good point: even if it was in a joking tone, is good because that way I can talk about this to the candidates:
About my analysis, even if Im not a gm, Im still a master, and more than 20 years of chess experience and 10+ of coaching. Is trading my expertise for yours: Im able to recognyze my english pitfalls; will you do it with your chess ones? If it is so, just contact me.

Just a freebie. ;)
I'm anything but a professional, so excuse me if there are still a bunch of errors.
I am not an english major but I think that this would be my game to win. Everyone that has responded thus far has missed the point of this exercise, therefore, no one one this site knows how to correctly post in proper english and this would most likely include myself. Have fun everyone!
pro bono correction:
loose = not tight
lose = not win
Don't go with me.
I'd just find ways of hiding filthy double entendre in your articles.
@Starway: I dont get it. I know there are a lot of pitfalls in my writing and speech, so I dont understand why you corrected this here. I need the articles.
Just in case, sometimes is difficult for me differentiate the sarcasm in english from the good intentions. So, if you are interested, please, send me an email.
you mean something like "that's what she said" ?
you mean something like "that what she said" ?
Ooooh! Now you get deleted!
edit: Yes, my entire post, That's what she said, was deleted. I swear we live in a kindergarten sometimes.
In all honesty, I wanted to get some criticism of my English skills, as well. >_>
But I really hope you do get somebody who's honest about helping you. Of course, if this person could also stick in some incredibly subtle filthy double entendres, that would make for an impressive 'inside joke'.
this will take time before you will get some replies in your email, this might take about 24-48 hrs.
How can someone be intelligent enough to become good at such a complicated game that the majority cannot, but cannot himself speak or write? It just doesn't make any sence - how did you become so good without ever reading books, or becoming educated in general?
You must be a rare bread of genius or something...
Nevertheless, I would be honored to correct you writtings.
What's my first task, and should I send you my games now?
How can someone be intelligent enough to become o good at such a complicated game that the majority cannot speak or write? It just doesn't make any sence - how did you become so good without ever reading books, or becoming educated in general?
Just a good solid loaf is all I need, and a jug of wine, and thou.
