    Have I done something stupid?

    Hi all,

    I redesigned my website and published some new English texts on it. I am Dutch, so I don't know if the English parts on my site are well written. If someone would be so kind to visit my English pages and let me know if I made some stupid mistakes, I'd really appreciate that!

    My site: www.drumcorps.nl
    It's a Dutch site, please click on the English flag.

    Thanks!!

    Marco

    I haven't had a chance to go through the whole site, but here are a couple of observations:

    donât on your site should be changed to don't.

    • a performance may last 9-13 minutes and
    • a performance may last 7-11 minutes. --> probably should be changed from 'may' to 'must' if it is a regulation.

    Or visit our faq page for more information. --> Maybe change to 'Please visit...'

    The writing I've seen is technically correct, but may be helped with a slight adjustment of English as it very slightly sounds translated, but is pretty much technically correct. There are certainly lots of English sites from English-speaking people that have worse grammer

    Scores & Recaps - The heading is not totally in English.

    That is the only error I've found. I didn't click the chat or forum section, but otherwise the site is fine.
