You need to work on improving your English. I would suggest you read good books to improve your sentence construction and understand the contextual usage of certain words. With your current level of proficiency in English, it would be near impossible for you to be considered for a job here.
hi

thanks for your comments
where are you from?

i so believe that the contextual structure is much enough to understand all what i indicate!.....

i do not suppose that people have incredible and orderly language skills there!

as i already know that many russian with middle level skills have acceptable conditions ...so,there is no need to make all harder

am i right!

regards
Trust me, I am honestly not trying to make "all harder". ( :oops: ) Anyways, on a serious note, you need to work on your language skills. I don't know any Russians here and I can't comprehend what you mean by "acceptable conditions" and "middle level skills"- all very very relative terms. But it would do you good to heed the advice people on the forum have shared. Unless you don't want any. Which makes me wonder why you are here?
For those who fight for it, life has a flavor the sheltered will never know.

hi ,everybody out there.

oh! no need to be so cruel in all.
i have just registered at that editor and initially see incomprehensible approaches from other chatters.

It is quite simple to understand all ,why ! so much arguments....

people overstate about all too much unnecassarily.

i was there couples years ago and had good experiences in all.
all very quite simple,its not an academical environment.If you have good experiences in your business field and able to express yourself entirely,you are welcome to the opportunities.

Hi Ben/Pac, or is it sarinho? May I ask as simple question? Why have you put your address as Seattle, Washington in your publicly available profile (look to the left side of your screen under your name, yet you are posting from the same Turkish IP address as sarinho? Sarinho, is this the only way you can find someone who thinks your English is suitable? Or have you put your friend up to it to bolster your position? In either case, it's pretty sad.

You are really going to have to learn to face the truth. Why should we lie to you. You ask us for information, we give it to you in good faith. You must learn that personal opinions do not enter into it. We don't know you. We only have what you type with which to form impressions. Please, do not continue to humiliate yourself.

first, i would to remind you regardıng my questıon (where are you from?)

its so clear what i mean ( packages,salaries,living conditions...etc) ,also having middle degree business experiences.

come on,you do not need to indicate being irrelevant on existence of russians.There are nearly 1500 russians living in Singapore,with satisfactory conditions.

i am here only to obtain some information about all of Singapore,not to discuss another subjects and matters.

Interesting that somebody living in America cannot spell Seattle correctly and makes the same type of grammar, interpunctuation and vocabulary mistakes as the earlier poster Sarinho. Have the two of them posted from the same IP address?

Later edit:
Hmm, SMS was faster than me and already clarified that the two are the same and trying to fool us. Thanks, SMS! I will stop communicating with this dubious character (whom I also had some PM exchanges with, trying to help - but there he also accused me of ignorance and being wrong for stating the obvious!).

Wow, I'm now pretty sure you're a professional copywriter for chinese product descriptions.

On a more serious note, business in Singapore is highly competitive. Even if you manage to finally get here, your competitors will tear you apart. Even your very own colleagues will eat you for breakfast if you cannot make a decent sentence in English. The locals are not happy losing jobs to foreigners, particularly those who cannot string a proper a sentence.

No amount of dopes will be able to help you. Think twice, you will. A dose of humility, you should bring. Already mentioned before, SMS has.
It's common sense - if you try to come in before I go out, I can't go out. And you can't come in! Lose-lose!

If you are "Originally" American, I'll eat my hat! While I know American School Standards have been dumbed down to the lowest common denominator, your English is NOT that of a native American. And, as was pointed out earlier, if you are from American, why did you list your address as Seatlle, U.S.A.? Is that supposed to be Seattle? And no American would write it in that manner. They would have written Seattle and assume all reading would understand that is the USA, or write Seattle, Washington or WA.

If you two are not the same with a split personality, then you are also Turkish and probably that is the only reason you two could do business, you both had the same English instructor (if, in fact you did have one) but probably communicate in Turkish anyway.

come off it. how can someone with such poor syntax manage to spell everything correctly. on-line translators only work if everything is spelled right in the native language otherwise it just returns the word as the original. even as a uk citizen (and relatively educated one, with a specific interest in the language) i still make spelling mistakes. sarinho/pac have managed to avoid a single one so far.

definitely a translator......
