Hi,

The first thing you need to do is to divide this into separate sentences.
Start each one with a capital letter, and end it with a period.

Without that, it's very hard to figure out what you are talking about.

Don't start a sentence with 'and'.

You can write two sentences, without 'and',. eg Mary cooked dinner. Tom ate it.

Or you can join them with 'and' to form one sentence.
eg Mary cooked dinner and Tom ate it.
But don't join more than two sentences like this.

So, I went to college 2 weeks ago. After I met my counselor and finished talking to him, I wanted to thank him. and shake his hand. I put out my hand to shake his, but he didn't. He said my hand was injured. I didn't know because it wasn't covered, so I was embarrassed.

What do you mean by 'it wasn't covered'? I don't understand.

If you have to write in English, you are going to have a lot of problems if you don't have a good knowledge of how to write a correct sentence Have you never studied this?

No i've never studied this but i'm just tryin' to learn how to tell a story.....and I mean by covered is he didn't have a bandage wrap on so that's why i didn't know his hand was injured
Hi,

He said his hand was injured. I didn't know because it wasn't bandaged, so I was embarrassed.

You need to be able to make correct sentences to tell a story, or to do any other kind of English writing or speaking.

Is there an English language class near you that you can go to, to learn this?

I have no problem with reading and understanding English ....I just have some problems with speaking and yea I will take some college classes
Hi,

Forgive me if I seem unkind. I don't mean to be.
But you really need to work on your English sentence structure if you want to do OK in college.

You can write and post some sentences here if you want to, but you need a more organized form of teaching to help you with the basics.

Best wishes, Clive
No you're not mean at all that's the truth I have to work on my english
