It's not how you write that counts,

It's

What

You

Write!

It's not how you write that counts,

I live in America.

The international language for flight is English.

I do not take it for granted that I am lucky to be able to read so much on social media that is in English but is written by people from around the world whose mother toungue is not English. 

A native Slavic speaking banker I know writes in English as she is trying to become bilingual. Over the last year I have seen her go from someone who was translating her thoughts into English to actually thinking in English. Wow am I impressed!!!!!

Do I care about punctuation, spelling, proper use of English, or an unlimited vocabulary when I am reading in English on social media? Hell no!


It's not how you write that counts,

"It was another Don that tweeted that. No offense meant."

I care about the message. One of my fellow bees enjoys writing poetic stories in English using a rather large vocabulary. There are many words I do not know and have to look up. This man knows his English and compared my enjoyment of using whimsical writing matter in my stories to that of O. Henry. 


It's not how you write that counts,

"I didn't write STOP THE TOLL BOOTHS, I wrote TOP THE POLL BOOTHS."

So, at the end of the day I will excuse every type of writing error. I read from the heart which happens to be how I write.

#23 I understand that one same here but the language left behind is French in my case , everyday French is OK by nay means but I have huge difficulty to be coherent and eloquent in a business situation I actually dont master any language properly at this stage :-)

It is becoming increasingly difficult for me to do English. I rarely speak it locally, I no longer dream in it and it is nearly only for background entertainment purposes. As they say in the unit, I have 'gone native'.

The brain auto-corrects many typos without us even noticing. I am not sure how open people who notice each and every mistake are to lose themselves in the content.

#8 #9 Good point about workplace literacy @Randy Keho, maybe there should be classes for those who work with English speaking people, not sure what the answer is?

I was thinking in terms of Social Media literacy as Migdalia mentioned below.
