From Tots to Teens, 8th May 2011

I WAS interviewed last week about what I thought about the poor quality of local children’s books, written in English. The reporter’s daughter had been recommended a book by her teacher and this book contained grammatical errors. Why had the teacher not noticed the inaccuracies? In my opinion it’s probably because he would not recognise a grammatical mistake even if it turned up at his home and performed a song-and-dance routine for him.
