Hello everybody, my name is Ivantalk. I am new to here and glad to get to this site.

How to describe one's English level?

As a chinese student, I am totally confuse which type of sentence should be used.

(I am a undergraduate from China but actually was born in Macao SAR. )

I exert myself to escape the usage of Chinese English, do you know what I am talking about?

Maybe we should get to the point now. Which of the following sentence is the most used in English world?

1. My English is good/fluent/bad/terrible.

2. My English are good.

3.I speak English well.

4.I speak good English.

5.I am a good English speaker.

6.I am good at English

7.I master English

Maybe all of the sentence above aren't correct absolutely. So could you tell me which sentence should I follow or you just give me a new one? Thanks for your concerning.

I've corrected the sentences that are grammatically incorrect, Ivan. In what context do you want to use them? If you want to describe your English skills without seeming arrogant, you could try saying, "I am fairly good at English." Otherwise, you can use the corrected versions of any of the sentences below except the last one.

1. My English is good/fluent/bad/terrible - Correct.

2. My English are good. - My English is good.

3.I speak English well. - Correct.

4.I speak good English. - Correct.

5.I am a good English speaker. - Correct I suppose, but I personally don't favour it.

6.I am good at English - Correct

7.I master English - I have mastered English.

Oh, just saw your other post. With the word "English", the form "is" is used.

Eg - English is a language.

English is my mother tongue.

Hope that helps, Ivan.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Mainly I want to know which form of the verb "be" should goes with the word "English"

Also, I am a native speaker have another meaning.

As the topic of the form, people whose ESL or EFL couldn't be native.

We can call one as native speaker if he or she speak English as his or her mother langauge.

Thanks, but I am still doubtful to the question.

When I use Google to help me to make inference, each of all the sentences above got only billions of result......or the results tell me that English or American don't make any comment on his or her English in daily life?
It is true that a native does not need to remark upon his/her command of the language. After all, would anyone ask you how good your Chinese was?

At any rate, the exact words you use do not matter. It is only the meaning they carry, and the grammatical correctness of the sentence that people will judge you on.

What do you need the most popular sentence for anyway unless it is for a survey?
