I want to thank all of the readers who stopped by last week’s introduction to the new addition to TSLL blog. Each Wednesday either a Word of the Week or a Good Grammar Is . . . lesson will be shared (alternating from week to week). I’ve decided to title the entire series The English Classroom, not to scare anyone away, as I know not every one eagerly anticipated attending their English classes (yes, I was someone who did in high school as well as college), but to invite you to enjoy the journey of the intoxicatingly complicated, yet beautiful dance with the English language.
Language changes and molds to the culture it resides, and the people who use the language determine what will be used or forgotten. When we choose to look at language in this way, it becomes a little less intimidating. Trust me, there are very few days in which I am teaching when I don’t have a student ask for the definition of a word, and I don’t have it on the tip of my tongue.
I am admittedly forever a student, and I prefer it that way. I hope you will join me whenever you’d like to waken up your vocabulary or tighten up your conversation. I think we’re going have an intriguingly good time.
Also, thank you to the many newsletter readers who have shared their ideas on the survey that was offered in last week’s newsletter. If anyone else would like to share what they’d prefer to have added to TSLL blog weekly line-up of posts and ideas of what the second episode of The Simple Sophisticate that will begin this summer should focus on, do feel free to answer three short questions (click here to start the survey).
