English is not my first language. Worse, people around men don’t speak or write English. So basically I’m on my own and to be honest, I suck in this language. Not that I have put up great efforts in improving my skills with this language but I nevertheless came across some resources, some of which are average and some of them are pretty good. I’m trying to compile those resources and I’m not sure how far I would go in this pursuit as my dedication span is very volatile. Here the resources I have came across. I have already compiled some of them in other blog post. I have listed them in no order. (I know you can get better results if you use Google, but still…)
