Question: Why do you use the past tense for in "what kind of help did you need with english?"

Beside, English is written with a capital E. Please pay attention to such "tiny" mistakes because people here are trying to learn English and if they read "english" they might think it is correct. Thanks.

Oh, didn't think about it, sorry about that. I will try to do my best to assist.


In this context "did" is acceptable. An easy way to think about it is this:

Earlier when you were thinking about learning English, what kind of help did you need?

(Can we list references here (web links)? Or is that forbidden?)

ALSO, PLEASE CORRECT MY GERMAN AS NEEDED (If you feel like it), I WOULD GREATLY APPRICIATE IT

Corrected

More acceptable
