Laugh about English with Luke - Teachers' Edition
Enjoy this collection of anecdotes and examples of mistakes non-native speakers have made in the process of learning and using English as a second language. These stories have been collected over 25 years in various countries and from numerous nationalities, and include difficulties with vocabulary, pronunciation, writing and culture. All examples have a twist; by making unintentional mistakes, non-native users of English have added a new, humorous dimension to the English language.
If you are an English language teacher, this is also a powerful teaching tool to add to your repertoire. When you select certain student errors to get a point across, you will not need linguistic explanations. Students will get the point quickly and, more importantly, will never forget nor make that mistake themselves. Humour accelerates student learning and the good thing is they supply the examples. Make a note in your order and I'll send you the Teacher's Edition with 10 Teaching Tips.
