English Grammar Checking

I'm using LO (Linux) and 4.x (Windows) and my English Grammar does not work. Apparently I have all the Java requirements and the LO Extension needed for this. But I can only check Spelling. Grammar checking is still not working. I installed Hunspell in Linux (uninstalled Myspell) and still the same problem. However, the Grammalecte extension for French grammar correction works fine (although it is not perfect). I checked the requirements, specially in Linux and did everything but I still have no English Grammar correction. In Linux, I still have the Spanish and British English myspell dictionnaries. Is it possible that those "myspells" impose some conflict? Should I uninstall these myspell dictionnaries. But what about the Windows version?? Is it a problem of LO version? Should I move to LO 5 ?? The extensions I have installed are "compatible" with my LO versions (no errors).
