comment my first letter, please fix it for me
This would be more suitable for lang-8.com than this website. On that website, you write posts in the language you're practicing, and get it corrected by native speakers. In return, you correct material written in English by people practicing English. However, that site is more for practicing language rather than professional proof reading.

Breaking it down to individual kanji, 外 means outside, 国 means country, so 外国 means "foreign", and 人 means person, so 外国人 means "foreigner".

comment What really is 人身事故?
I heard a non-Japanese person say that railway companies refer to incidents as accidents even when they are suicides. Although the person thought that it was the result of people tending to be euphemistic, I can see a very sensible reason to take this approach: people can mis-judge what happened until it's been carefully investigated, and it's better in the meantime to avoid making any false accusations.

Lang-8.com might be a more suitable site for something like this. You practice writing entries in Japanese, and get corrected by native speakers of the language. In return, you correct entries written in English by people practicing that language.
