Another Jan 29 picture

Something is rotten in University. You know what else something is rotten in? Your sentence structure. Like, I get the general point of what you`re saying, but I don't really feel that something is rotten in the universities. Your ESLness is negating your credibility too much.

I love this blog. Entertaining, funny, poignant even!

But, if you're attacking the writing skills of one of the profiled babes, you should probably proofread your own caption. "What your saying" should be "what you're saying."

I'm just saying...

You should also do some research. In Europe, people hardly ever say "in the university". Most of the time when speaking people simply say "in uni" or "in university". Much like we say "in college" here in the US.

Whatever, the awesome marker font makes up for the missing "the". ♥ to all ESLs! In 20 years I bet some Shanghai kids will make fun of whiny pretentious Americans with broken Chinese. "What? What moron speaks backwards and confuses this inflection with the other?! If they're gonna do business/live here, might as well learn the language!" Hang on tight to your soon to be outsourced job and cram Mandarin, kids! *panics*

ok. i admit that the mistake is not really extreme enough to be haha funny. But I maintain that "there is something rotten in university" is incorrect.

I am a professional grammathematician actually, so.

Also that guy is one of my boyfriends, so.
