If you mainly want to use Continental for ribbing, perfecting it as you have your English style really doesn't have to be the goal, a way that works is good enough. I haven't tried ribbing in English and don't think I will ever do it that way much. My main reason for learning English is to carry a 2nd color in my right hand to do stranded color work and that I can do with just knits. I may never be able to effectively purl English and I can live with that. Stay motivated, my friend, just don't let it make you crazy.
Too Late I am already Crazy So this will only make me crazier
