Hello, my name is Liliana, I live in the USA, I joined TeamTreeHouse 2 weeks ago.

I like the way team tree house teach, and I like coding so far, I really want to learn and be good but I feel at a disadvantage if I apply for a job because my English is not perfect, is my second language. Do you think that matter? I understand pretty much everything and I am fluent.

I don't know how things are working in the US, but I think it depends on what kind of coding job you're applying to, the size of the company etc..

Maybe you should not see the "my English is not perfect, is my second language." as a disadvantage, because knowing multiple languages is a valuable skill (my opinion) + you can always improve your english :-)
