I originally had written some disclaimers in there about the grammar part not applying to folks who could also take the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foriegn Language), but finally decided that I wasn't trying to write a novel or a legal disclaimer so I took it all out
Plus, in my experience, folks for whom English is not
the primary language tend to have better grammar than native speakers. The wording choices can sometimes be interesting, but the grammar is typically exceptional
I agree with both you and Ard, Doug.
My point was really the other way round in asking native speakers to avoid language that could be impenetrable to non-native speakers. I say this because even I have problems understanding American colloquialisms sometimes and English is my mother tongue.
