Teacher parodies students’ mistakes on blog
A Singapore school teacher decided to teach her students a lesson about poor written English: by posting a collection of her students’ mistakes onto her blog under the title of Bad Engrish.
Students and Teachers however didn’t see the funny side of the parody and told the Electric New Paper that “it was mean”.
One excerpt included this piece:
‘I know that Singapore is a small dot in the globe but is giving aids to many countries and Indonesia is being hazy all the time.’
The entry was featured on local blogger bulletin tomorrow.sg, a site that routinely posts links to interesting blogs about different facets of Singapore life.
The 29-year-old teacher said that blogging about her students’ mistakes was her way of correcting them in a friendly way, and that they do occasionally read her blog.
