With the great response from “O’Brian” in another forum (he’s working diligently to bring a piece of English prose to the required standard for consideration as a passage for some English teaching book in Taiwan), I’d like to know what is the most memorable sentence or passage you’ve encountered in your English teaching travels in Taiwan (in print, published).
My favorite encounter this week: a fill-in-the-blank answer with the first and last letters supplied, as usual. Now, what answer would the average native English speaker think of first?
The f_______g dog was going to bite me, so I threw a stone at it.
(For those who don’t have a second-year Taiwanese high school student handy, the answer is “frightening”! No, I mean that’s really the answer…)
