Are these questions in language troll questions or are they genuine? "Fluent speakers of English, I need your help with my English?"?

Update:

I've just counted them...there are TEN in the last day or so.

Update 2:

Anonymous troll who's blocked me...YES, I do usually speak in Welsh.

    I believe most of them are genuine enough, but there are one or two askers who definitely over-do it. Nobody here wants to help with these sentences quite THAT often.

    Some are trolls, possibly most are genuine. It is sometimes hard to judge whether troll or genuine.

    I can't see why not. There are many people that have questions about English, even native speakers themselves. If a person is learning English as a foreign language, it makes sense for them to post a question in an English-speaking forum.

      These all seem to be by the same person though.

    I think the asker has taken on a translating job [or more than one] into English instead of into his native language, and therefore very properly feels insecure about the result. Translations should always go from L2 into L1.

    They seem genuine, based on content. The questions regarding usage are typical to those learning English as a second language.

    Can't say they all are, but many are legit I think. There are a lot of non-English Askers on Answers. Anyway, I've received Best Answer from some of the language Askers; so I think they're real ESL people.

      I was just wondering as there are so many of them..one after another. Why not just ask more questions on the same post?

    They're genuine. Why would anybody be making that up. It's not even funny or bizarre or anything. They're probably taking an English class and need help.

      It's just that there are around 8 of them today.

    Do you normally speak only in Welsh?
