If I was a lawyer, I'd eat your reports for breakfast. The fact that you passed "documentation" in your class doesn't mean anything.
Do you want to improve your English language skills? Or do you honestly not care?
There's lots of *great* and I mean *GREAT* medics here trying to give you a bigger picture... you yourself admit you're in your teens (that's when I started as well, by the way) so you should realize that your job is to be a giant sponge and absorb all the wonderful information thrown your way. Once you've been a provider for a while you can decide which bits to chuck aside as unimportant...
I'll give you several instances in which English mastery is important:
-Resume. You hand me a resume with no capitalization, word misuse, spelling errors? I'm going to round file it. It's my first impression of you.
-Documentation. As I said above, if I were a lawyer, I'd eat your reports for breakfast. You can learn to do better, and you should- not just for your own professionalism, but to contribute to our profession as a whole.
-Professional communication in the workplace. There are many who will miss the message for the mistakes in your communication. Email is your friend, both CYA and rapid communication wise... if you can't learn to write one quickly and correctly, it'll hold you back.
Welcome to the City! You're going to do great. Ask lots of questions, and put your all into it.

Dude. Mobey uses Canadian English. He's in CANADA. Ergo, British English spellings... extra vowels here and there... c's instead of s's... you get my drift...
