English Under Pressure

Can't WriteIm begining to feal that Im definately on a role with all this Inglish spellin, punktashun and grammer stuff. It all goes to pot when you is under preshure.

If you don’t believe me, you need to try your hand at You Can’t Write Proper English Under Pressure which starts easily enough but soon has a pedant’s heart pounding as the time limit speeds up.

I’m grateful to Miss P for this one. I just hope she isn’t using it to tutor her Thai pupils or they would give up and switch to Esperanto instead.

And if that wasn’t enough, below is another link she sent me for a rapid fire debunking of 50 scientific misconceptions. Enjoy.

    Oops – re. my earlier comment about conversation – I am sorry. I forgot Little Miss Parrots is teaching in Rayon, Thailand. How’s it going? is she enjoying herself over there? What a boon technology can be in keeping in touch with faraway loved ones.

      She’s loving it thanks. I think it was a little daunting at first, this being her first teaching job, and because she found she wasn’t just teaching English, but science, art and all sorts of subjects. Miss P seems to have settled in now and got control of the little brats darlings!
