My short italki intro - how correct is it?

안녕하세요! 지금 서울에서 살아요. 여기 오랫동안 살더라도 한국말을 아직 잘 못 해요. italki에 한국말을 늘러 왔어요. 영어 알고싶은 것을 있으면 꼭 물어보세요.

Hello! I live in Seoul right now. Even though I've lived here for a long time I still can't speak Korean well. I came to italki to improve my Korean. If there's something you want to know about English, please ask me.

The things I'm most insecure about are my uses of -더라도 and -러.

    안녕하세요! 저는 현재 서울에 살아요. 여기에서 오랫동안 살았지만 한국말을 아직 잘 못해요. italki에서 한국말을 늘리고 싶어요.(or italki에는 한국말을 늘리기 위해 왔어요.) 영어에 대해 질문이 있으면 꼭 저에게 물어보세요.

    ~더라도 : it's easily used with 'if' sentences.
    네가 아무리 열심히 했더라도 결과가 너무 좋지 않았잖니.
    You say you had tried so hard, but the result was too bad, you know.
    네가 아무리 싫다고 하더라도 나는 네가 좋다.
    Even though you say you hate me, I like you.

    ~러: it's used for showing the 'purpose' of doing something.
    나는 공부하러 도서관에 간다.
    I go to a library to study.
    우리는 놀이공원에 놀러 갔다.
    We went to a theme park to have fun.
