"Hey, put this book away.",
my daughter said
"No. Not THIS but THAT. "
At first I didn't know what she was talking about.
Then she continued
"THIS is wrong. You have to say THAT."
And so I found out that she was trying to correct
my English. I was a kind of upset and started to
excuse myself explaining I was not wrong because
THE BOOK was close enough to use THIS.
I was surprised at myself excusing myself
so hard. And now I feel that maybe my daughter was
right and I shouldn't have talked her back that way.
Sometimes she speaks English so fast and she doesn't
even make a single mistake. Although it doesn't happen
so often, it's amazing.
It would be nice to click here for the ranking.
I'm happy that you know exactly what I mean.
And I'm so sure that you feel that way, too.
As a teacher I never felt like this.
I believe working on something (anything) everyday
is really important☆
