Do you guys think i should write in my native language (spanish).....or maybe should i take intensive english classes to make it even better than my own language?

From what you wrote, Sour Lemon, you're doing much better with English than some native English speakers do. You might try posting a short snippet (~250-500 words) in one of the Share Your Work Forums and ask people there how you're doing with English. If you do that, please post here to let us know where in share your work you posted.

Another consideration is what you'll be doing with your writing. If you hope to publish in the US, then writing in English is better; if you hope to publish in a Spanish speaking country - you know the answer. Good luck! Puma

thanks for the advice!! I'll do that!!!

You know how it works: you change a word, you can change the meaning of an entire line. That's how it works in spanish and i'm sure with every language!!
