There's no problem with your English :-)

I don't use GMail's IMAP, but many people do, so it's probably a configuration 
issue.  Try writing down (and posting here) full details of your KMail setup 
screens for the gmail account - change a character or two in your login name 
and make your password something like 'mypasswd' so that we can see the 
structure without compromising your security.  Hopefully someone who uses 
gmail imap will be able to tell from that where your problem lies.
