Grammar Level: Gibberish

19 Jun 2023

HackerNoon is primarily an English publication, but we support writers whose native language is not English. You don’t need a degree or any language certification to publish here.

However, we need to be able to understand what you’re writing. If the grammar, punctuation, and phrasing is so bad or unnatural that we can’t understand what you’re trying to say, we’ll reject the piece.

But don’t give up! Use Grammarly and other free grammar tools to improve your piece and try to submit it again.
