American english is like real english but badly spelled…
At least our words are spelled more similarly to how they’re pronounced. Tell me how the “gh” in “draught” sounds like an “f” and yet the “gh” in “plough” sounds like a “w”
All English is weird. Rough still has the “f” sound. The best thing English has done is remove gender from everyday objects. The water isn’t masculine or feminine it’s goddamn water.The grey/gray explains SO MUCH of the struggle I had in grade school. I must have had some exposure to British spelling early on, because I was frequently marked down for very simple differences like this. Grey/Gray was one I will always remember, because of the inconsistent “correction” I received from various teachers. I could not figure it out for years. Literally. I figured this one out in college.When I started my Bachelor’s degree.
So my university had a ‘stress-free resort’ station set up today to help students combat the stress of finals week.
There was a coloring table
complete with Lion King coloring books
There was a lego table
also, free massages.
This is the most wonderful thing that ever happened in four years of college.
Our school should do this
