Hello. I see that you level in English is better than mine. And this not an excuse to not start just believe in your skills and create your gigs for the first times try to create all the gigs possible and send offers in the buyer request section. Good luck 👍

A few things:

  1. As others have mentioned, Fiverr has sellers from all over the world, so it is possible for you to engage in the platform.  However, Fiverr is English language based and you are going to have a challenging time getting work with English speaking buyers if you do not speak English well enough to have a meaningful conversation.  Additionally, you need to be able to read the terms of service well enough to clearly understand the rules.
  2. This is not a job.  By becoming a seller on Fiverr you are becoming a small business owner, not an employee.

Hi, I'm programmer too. Especially in Web Tech. 

I think, you need more "ready to go" solution gigs rather than selling your "programming" skill.

For example, create a re-skin game that you already have. So your buyer get all resources and ready to upload to marketplace.

if you're able to at least understand what people want when buying your services, I guess it's alright.

I don't think I'm on-board with this sentiment.  I'm not suggesting someone has to be absolutely fluent in English to prosper here, but to randomly pick a number out of the sky, you probably need to be 7 out of 10 fluent at least.  Your statement of understanding what the buyer wants is subject to gradation. It is one thing to "understand" the requirements, but a whole other ballgame to understand them to the point of internalizing the intent.  In other words, nuance is important and it take a pretty high level of communication to achieve that.  Additionally, even if a poor reader/speaker can get the understanding of the requirements AND the nuances, it might have been a very difficult experience for the customer to communicate that level of understanding, i.e., took 10 messages when 1 would have worked for someone else.  In this latter case, the poor speaker is probably going to have a tough time getting repeat customers.
