Better?? You probably mean I should write "I don't like my big photos so I post here dragon where I am small on the photo" rather than "So I post rather only this dragon with small Petula"...?
Hehe, I really like english so this disscussion is interesting for me.

Hmm well it's kind of an awkward sentence to begin with but by better I just meant that it sounds funny... in a good way, like I said.

It's probably not grammatically correct or anything but I don't know... I'm definitely not the best to consult in these matters.

If you want it to sound a little less awkward, you could say:

Quote:
I don't like most of my big photos, so here's one I do like, next to a dragon. I'm kind of small next to it, but you can still see me.
Something like that.

Thank you. I will probably still write some awkward and funny sentences but I will try to remember this your sentence like example of correct english

I like your awkward and funny sentences, they're cute, but it's good that you want to work on your English.
I love grammar and such, so I'm always here to help. [=

not that i am an english professional, but i think even your original sentence is fine. the difference i think is that you wrote it just trying to get an idea across, but we read it as something cute and clever. i love the way people whose english isn't their first language write and say things. it is so endearing. i also have a lot of respect for...well...most of the world for learning multiple languages. being an american, we take a foreign language in school and forget about it as soon as we are done. all i know is english and it really bothers me...

In Europe we are surrounded by many languages so when we want to go to some another country, we have to use different language. Of course it's able to speak english almost everywhere but I like to learn at least some sentences.
I speak english and I try to speak german but mostly I only understand german but don't speak. English is easier to learn because I can watch BBC, CNN, english movies... It really helps. But for example spanish? You have to spend long time to find some spanish book in Prague, they have it only in some shops. And they have millions of english books everywhere.

I really wish I had the motivation to learn a new language, I still remember about 10 Chinese sentences from when I holidayed there. I could also understand some verbal, but they speak rapidly so it was difficult to pick up, and I have no chance of writing or reading Chinese. I still remember basic French from school too. Pathetic really .
