Short sentences and simple words are usually the best for speakers of 
English as a foreign language (except for latin names of plants, etc. which 
are universal).  Also, avoid idiomatic expressions.

Subject: [pbs] Website comments

At the PBS board meeting this morning we talked a little about the PBS
website. I'm one of the people who answer questions that visitors to the
site ask. Sometimes the questions are from visitors who do not know much
English, and they ask how to join and similar things.

We welcome comments from members of this forum who read English as a
foreign language. Do you have suggestions about how we can make our
website easier for people around the world to use?

I also answer quite a few questions asking "how to buy the bulbs," but
these come from all over the world, including the USA and UK. Apparently
people get directly to the wiki via a search engine and misunderstand it
as a sales catalog!

Finally, thanks to all of you who have helped answer some of the
questions I've forwarded to this list in the past.
