    Spelling then grammar and once those two items are mastered I'd tackle sentence structure ;)

    What are 'gcses'? It's hard to tell what someone should (and needs to) practice without an idea of where they are currently at.

    gcses are GCSEs or even more correctly General Certificate of Secondary Education - a UK education achivement/exam setup that all students (who study at state and most private schools) have to take in their final year of compulsary eduction.

    As for where to start the first thing is what are you going to take photos of and what do you have to take them with?

    Have you read some of the posts on this site...not the non-english folks?

    I only read some of them trying to figure out what the poster is attempting to say. Maybe it will lead to a job with the government...:mrgreen:

    Firstly, I don't write on this website with the greatest care because to be totally honest, I couldn't give a F**K. I wanted advice on photography and not on my my "typing with great care" skills. :lmao:

    Secondly I am a very beginner in photography.
    Thirdly I will shoot anything really, I get enjoyment out of shooting most things.
    I use a Lumix FZ38 by the way.

    Yeah I understand that but what i'm trying to say is that this is just a forum website and what does the quality and structure of my writing matter on here ?:lol:

    It shows how you carry yourself. Not very well, by the looks of things.

    Any beginner should first read their camera manual, then read a photography book (it seems from the consensus on this forum that Understanding Exposure by Peterson is really well written), then read their manual again, take some pictures and post them on TPF for critiques, and read some more.

    You're asking a supremely vague question and there won't be a clearly defined answer that you may be looking for. I again suggest you post some of your recent work and ask questions about those images.

    And as far as your grammar and writing abilities; it may not have any bearing on this photography website but if others are having a hard time deciphering what you've written then how do you expect to get any comments?
