Hi, I am a student, and teacher of English classes(I am from Poland) told us to write a letter in English.Can you check is it proper grammar?

Dear Arthur,
I'm very glad, that you have written, when I was in very bad mood. Fortunately, that times have gone, and I'm very happy to write to you again.
Lately, I feel great, because of great movies I watch. You know, that I like science-fiction and horror movies, but the greatest film I admired for a long time is "South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut". It's an animated comedy about 4 friends, and their crazy adventures, like saving the world from Satan! I knew that, that it would be a nice movie to watch, because, as you know , I really like the series of South Park, too. Besides saving the world, there is a plot ("plot"or "thread" which word would be good?) about: homosexual romance between Saddam Hussain and Satan, television show "Terrance and Phillip" in which main characters are very controversial, and there is a plot about angry, determined parents, too. Since this is an animated movie, there are no human actors, but for example Isaac Hayes did Chef's (on of the main characters) voice. What I liked the most in this movie is the great sense of humor, which you can find in every minute of the film. If we could watch some film together, I'd be very happy. What do you think about new "Pirates" film? I' d like you to come to me as soon as you can.I must be finishing...
Love, Peter
PS. Send my love to your parents

Its written kind of weird... I fixed a few things in it. Also, you should use plot and not thread. You need to fix that first sentence too... I don't really know what you might wanna go with there...

Where did you get this assumption from?

I was simply pointing out that he may want to change it to Yours Sincerely, or simply 'From'. Unless he is infact homosexual, in which case it is fine.

It's not a letter to a real person anyhow. Or atleast I don't think it is.

I think, it was, very, good. And that, you have, better English, than 50% of the people, in English based countries.

However, you need to stop using commas after every two-three words.

Ok, thank you very much . Commas are a habit from a Polish language, which is kinda funny. What's more funny , is that I learned my English from South Park's and Friends

It's readable, but it definitely sounds like a foreigner wrote it. You used a bit too many commas and some of the phrasing is a bit weird. Overall, good job.

Dear Arthur,

I'm very glad that you have written. I was in a bad mood and your letter cheered me up.
Lately, I feel great because I've been watching a slew of fantastic movies. You already know that I like science-fiction and horror movies, but you probably didn't know that a long time favorite of mine has been "South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut". It's an animated comedy about four friends and their mischievous adventures, such as saving the world from Satan and causing a war against Canada! I already expected that this movie was going to be terrific because I'm a fan of the regular television series, which has never failed to entertain.

The movie is filled with many risque yet clever content. Besides the chaos and uncertainty of the world in the movie, there is a strange side plot on the homosexual romance between Saddam Hussain and Satan. However, the central catalyzer of the story is the controversial comedy duo, Terrance and Phillip, who causes an outrage among concerned parents due to the duo's blatant and excessive promotion of profanity to their young viewing audience. Ultimately, what I liked the most about this movie is the witty and off-beat sense of humor, which is abundant in every minute of the film.

Well, that's enough about "South Park". I look forward to seeing you again and hopefully we can watch a movie together. What do you think of the new "Pirates" film?

Well, it's a pleasure to write to you and I hope to hear back from you soon!

Love,

Peter

Yo Arthur,
I'm totally chuffed that you have written when I was totally pissed. Fortunately, I've had a wank and I'm very happy to reply mate.
Lately, I've been peachy because of the porn I've been watching. You know that I like science-fiction and horror movies, but the greatest film I admired for a long time is "South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut". It's an animated comedy about 4 friends, and their crazy adventures, like saving the world from Satan! I knew that it would be a bitchin' movie to watch, because, as you know, I really like South Park. Besides saving the world, there is a side story about: homosexual romance between Saddam Hussain and Satan and the television show "Terrance and Phillip" in which main characters are very controversial, and there is a plot about angry, determined parents somewhere in there as well. Since its a cartoon, there are no human actors, but for example Isaac Hayes did Chef's (one of the main characters) voice (although he's dead now). What I liked the most in this movie is the rad jokes and bad language (swearing is kewl), which is found every minute of the film. If we could watch some porn together, I'd be very happy. What do you think about the new "Pirates" film? I thought it was bollocks mate. I'd like you to come on me as soon as you can. I must be finishing...There...I came...sorry...my wallets on the dresser...
