I found this the other day -- from 2005

Some more quotes from my ESL 100 class this term (It's nearly the end of the quarter, so this is likely about the last of these until the next time I teach the class — which will probably be next spring) —  ( Of course, I haven't graded their final exams yet, so there's still hope for some more!! )

 

" … [I am ] writing a book about the "Gate of Salivation" …"

[ I haven't asked him, but I'm pretty confident that the last word in that quote should be "salvation".  I'm not looking forward to having to explain the difference. ]

 

 

" (He) advised them strongly not to be extremists of prouding the ethnicity…"

         [ It's not exactly standard English, but the sentiment is great! ]

 

Great new word:                  neighboors        

         [ And haven't we all had at least one neighBOOR?? ]
