This fall I'm going to be tutoring an ESL law student. The internet has lots of resources on ESL teaching, including one that sends me weekly bulletins. Today I learn that I can use examples from the speech of President Bush himself in order to show that, yes, English really is hard!
I don't know about this. Undoubtedly correcting Bush's errors has something to offer as a pedagogical tool, but it seems cruel to the man. Besides, I'm embarrassed for him--and for the nation that put him in office.
