Hey! I am starting a PGCE in September and have been browsing these forums for a while, enjoying getting into the teaching spirit after some years in industry. I must admit I have been pretty shocked at some of the grammar I have seen in these forums, and wonder what others think? I know this is a place for sharing ideas informally and getting support from peers, rather than a formal setting, but it is still an open access forum that represents the teaching profession as a whole. I'm not talking about typos and time saving lack of capitalisation etc, I'm talking about howlers such as "I have had lot's of experience", "hey guy's, can you help me with x, z, z etc", and "if your doing a lesson on..." Does this wind anyone else up as it does me? Maybe I'm just being fussy, but surely our teachers should all have a basic grasp of English grammar and apply it routinely? Do they write such errors on the board for children to learn from? Would welcome your thoughts!
