Oh yeah I'm not bad at english and that but on forums I dont really use grammer and punctuation techniques but I understand were your coming from.
I know its Royal navy but someone asked what navy did i want to join? the british or the US so i just replied to that.
But just out of interest whats the difference between British and Royal, I mean are'nt they the same thing?

P.s If u think this was trying to get the last word it wasnt I'm just trying to justify myself hahaha

Thanking everyone for the advice and internet URL's. I'm studying hard to pass the aptitude test. I went to pick up the aplication a couple of days ago and found out my over all score on my last test which i sadly failed on.
i managed to score 16 in english and 9 in maths but they didnt tell me my mechanics or verbal reasoning score. So hopefully soon i will sit and pass the test.

Also i would like to go in the Royal navy as a seaman specialist, so if anyone could private message me what life is like as a seam specialist i would be very greatful :)

Really. Why do you bother to make so many errors then? You are bad at English.

Aye, but the only Canuks were some scruffy though likeable Lt 'pusser' type bloke and another fuckwit who I only ever saw wearing an ice hockey shirt. Probably Special Needs Forces trying to keep it secret that he was a Canuk.

Oddly enough there were no Taiwanese.

Still think that 25 Brit service personnel working happily alongside two members of the 'IRA' had it's own humour as opposed to a somewhat surreal acronym thingy :wink:

I'd have still taken advantage of the Greek numpty and ordered the most bogus medals (he says, living with a Greek girlfriend).

IRA still rather amusing though!

Ok yh a few mistakes but does it bother you so much that I typed it's like its and why is english wrong if im talk about the english language? That is something I didnt learn in school so please tell me. But ok I do make mistakes I just get confused with spellings because i'm fluent in spanish and I get mixed up with the spelling and sound's to the english language.
I hope you dont take this as me being cheeky or disrespectful, I just like to learn from my mistakes.

I don't really want to get in an arguement on these forums because I don't know you and you dont know me. I only came on this website for help and not to be insulted by other people about my English.
I passed my IGCSE extended English exam so i'm happy with that. I know you served in the Royal navy but that doesn't give you the right to look down your nose at me and find every mistake in my post's.

I havent... Yet ;)

Quick question, you say you are fluent in spanish. Was this your first language ? :?

No i'm English but trust me once you learn how to spell in a different language it does get confusing and im not making it up. Sometimes i pronounce English words in spanish and people just look at me wierd hahaha but I dont mean to, it just happens .

Hmmm, If you say so. However, I am not far off being fluent in Italian. Yet I haven't forgotten my native language!


Anyhow, Best of luck with your application for the RN :)

Are you living in Italy? because I lived in spain from the age of 8 and went to spanish school so I missed 5 years of British education because the last 3 years I lived in Spain I went to an English school so that did help.
And if your not being sarcastic about the good luck to my RN aptitude test, Thanks :)

I would hazard a guess that if you can't handle a spot of sarcasm here & there, you're aspiring to the wrong profession.
