Yes, it is quite easy, but if you read enough message boards you really start to question whether people know the very obvious difference between similar sounding words.

Hey, he used too instead of to.... that's sort of ok.

I find the use of alot, which is not a word, minorly irritating. And mixing up weather and whether bugs me, also.

Your and You're are commonly used as the same on the internet by people who have good grammar skills and those who don't have good grammar skills. As long as I can read what is being said then It doesn't bother me very much. I can read between the grammar mistakes and learned individuals can't insult people into practicing better grammar.

Quote:
You have 10 correct answers out of 10
I may have received 10 out of 10 right but ask me to write a paper without spell check and you will see how horrible my grammar/spelling is. Some times it's the public school systems fault or the students fault and could possibly be both parties fault. My personal experience with Texas Public Education and Arkansas Public Education has been less then pleasing.

I personally went to one of the top High schools in the Arlington area but they were only rated High because all the students that were "Slow Learners" or "Lazy" or "Trouble Makers" were stuck into Special Education classes. They were exempt from the state tests and were given a very "dumbed down" test. A good portion of the school was in special education so they could get good scores for the state tests.

I moved to a little town in east Texas that had little less then 600 students. I was placed into their Special Education Class because they saw I was in Special Ed my previous 2 high schools. The students in this class were truly special needs students. After testing they showed that I did not need to be in that class and only needed a remedial math class over a computer to catch up with the rest of my Class.

No child left behind? Sorry but Bullshit the children are still being left behind even more while the public schools are hiding behind their state scores while slower students are being exempted from state tests. I was told by my Counciler that "you could never learn a second language" so she exempted me from a foreign language requirement for graduation.

When I got to high school in east Texas I was able to take Latin as a foreign language class. I had NO trouble with the class and did extremely well. When I wanted to take it at my previous high schools they told me it was one of the hardest languages to learn and I could not learn it. Latin improved my English skills and helped me understand English better. Why did they stop making it a requirement?

I had always heard they had took Latin out of the school system because it was too hard to learn. I feel that removing Latin is one of the many the problems with public school system that results in kids having horrible English scores and problems with their own language. We need to close the cracks in the system so that so many kids stop falling through them. How can we do that? Take care of what needs to be done on our homeland and stop focusing everything on what is going outside of our homeland. In my opinion that can be a good start on making things better.

It may be common, but that doesn't make it right!

There are a lot of people that use the wrong word in there (err, they're, or is it their ) posts.

heres a good one you wont get unless you've heard it before...



Can you think of a sentence that is good English, grammatically correct, makes sense and yet has SIX 'and's in a row?
In other words, the sentence must have this in it somewhere:

and and and and and and

I was politely invited to discontinue my formal education in the 10th grade, even I got 10 of 10 right.
Test is too simple.

Actually, I can. People present themselves the way they want to be perceived.
