If you come up with a better way of writing my message, please let me know and write it down.
if you find even little mistakes in my writing and you have free time, please change it and post it here.

i want to know (if needed) why you changed the scentences...rather than just changing it to the correct form, i also want to know why.

its a bit long, but please help me.

1.

"I hate it when someone close to me dies and people ask me if I'm okay"

shoudnt it be:

"I hate it when someone close to me is dead and people ask me if I'm okay"
______________________________________________________________

2.
"she had died three months ago" OR "she died three months ago" OR any other form.

______________________________________________________________

3.
"this is the first time someone who is close to me dies" OR "this is the first time that someone who is close to me died/is dead/dead"
______________________________________________________________

4.
  • someone is telling me he doesnt go to parties OR he isnt going to parties(usually)
  • he is sad about it, i want to tell him, dont worry you will go, then i can say this: you would soon (go to parties) OR you will soon(go to parties)
  • i want to ask himn if he usually goes to parties, how may i ask him that?
are you going to parties OR do you go to parties OR something else

im talking to my freind on msn and i want to ask him if he has already decided where he will go next year.(did i write that right ^^)

"do you know where you are going next year?" (im not sure about that one)

"do you know where do you go next year?"

"do you know where you go next year?"

(i really think those all are incorrect)

any others?
______________________________________________________________

6.
what is the differnces between these:

"I will do it"
"I would do it" (honeslty, i belive this scentence is incorrect) because would is used in past future or If conditinals...if im wrong let me know.

7.
______________________________________________________________

"im going to my causin house next week"
ok, im not proficient in the details, but isnt the "going" in the progressive?
"i will go to my causin hosue next week" better?

8.
______________________________________________________________
what are the uses of the word "got"

"i got time" (now)
i see some people say things with "got"
but not necessarily in the past, for example:"i got time(right now)"
and others i cant think of right now

______________________________________________________________

9.
"i would be happy if you were smarter" correct?
OR
"i will be happy if you are smarter(i mean, get more smarter, in the future)"
*its related to the IF condiinoals so i think a little review of the rules will help
______________________________________________________________

10.
someone manage to think of a good idea to help me study better, i want to tell him:

"it would help" im not sure about the "would" here
"it could help"
OR
it will help (yes, just will)
*although i want to say that his idea will probably help, im not certain that it will...
______________________________________________________________

11.

"You would generally want to use"
if its "generally" (usually) than why "would"?
______________________________________________________________

12.

"I have got good grades in the tests" OR "I got good grades in the tests"

does it depends on when it happened?

13.

what are the differnces between:

"i never grow up"
"im never growing up"

AND THATS ALL FOR now

AND OTHER LITTLE THING:

brief ( or if you want you can go into details), review of the IF conditionals.
brief ( or if you want you can go into details), review of the word "would".

-HOW DO YOU THINK I CAN LEARN ENGLISH?

some tips...

THANK YOU

dont forget to tell me if i write good or not

I'm not going to reply to your whole post. More advanced users can help you more than I'm capable to do it.

A more formal way to express "dead" would be " to pass away/by or to decease "

I hate it when someone close to me passes away and people ask me if I'm ok.

The sentence is correct both in present and in simple past.
ok im waiting for more advnaced users

thanks for your reply

what are the uses of the word "got"

"i got time" (now)

i see some people say things with "got"
but not necessarily in the past, for example:"i got time(right now)"
and others i cant think of right now

Some people also say, "I've got time," which is equally incorrect.

"Got" is the past participle of the verb "to get." (also "gotten") It means things like "to obtain"; "to receive."
"Got" is also the the simple past tense of the same verb.

(Sometime when you got time, practice capitalizing the personal pronoun, "I.")

"Got" is incorrectly used as a casual substitute for "have."
I have a fever. I got a fever. I gots a fever.
I've got to leave now. = I have to leave now. (obligation)

The use of "got" as a substitute for "caught" is sort of a grey area: I went out last night without my coat, and I got a cold.
If you go out without your coat, you might get a cold. (bare infinitive)

Correct past tense uses would be:
I got an A on my report card.
She got a can of beans down from the shelf.

The use of "to get" as a substitute for "to become" is (I believe) also a grey area:
We got busted.
Somehow, the mirror got broken.

As the past participle, it's used in the formation of certain tenses:
I had got (received) seventeen tickets before I was finally arrested. (You can also use "gotten" here.)
