I would rather…

This made me laugh so hard…It is not about grammar, but it’s amazing how a single word can change the meaning of a sentence.




5 layers cake

Yesterday my kid showed me his result to this year English Reading exam. I was so proud of him – he got Level 5 (the best). When the teacher wrote the result in his school’s agenda, she told him – “You’ll have cake tonight, right?”.

And now my son wants a 5 layers cake – each layer for each one of the 5 levels from the exam he mastered. With a big “Congrats!” message on top of the cake.

And now me – I’m looking for a good recipe for a 5 layers cake. Do you have any healthy recipe?

I’m looking at something similar to these below.

Correct me!

Since English is not my first language, I asked some people (for whom English is their mother tongue) to correct me when they hear me saying something wrong. Some of them corrected me, but the majority don’t. Now, I ask myself – why? Is it because my English is better now, because they don’t care, or because they are too ashamed to correct my foolishness?    😛
