TEACHING, YOU’RE DOING IT RIGHT: Brazilian Students Correct Celebrities’ Grammar on Twitter

Posted on July 4, 2013 by

Watch out, celebrities! Your fans may be too shy to correct your tweets but this group of Brazillian students sure aren’t.

Brazil’s leading English school Red Balloon (yes, that is really a school name) had their students complete what might be the most genius English exercise ever. Known as “The Celeb Grammar Cops,” students between the ages of 8 to 13 were responsible for finding grammatical errors in celebrity tweets and politely tweet the corrections back through the school’s Twitter account. The results were obviously hilarious and endearing.

The students didn’t discriminate as they corrected tweets from all kinds of celebrities. “Victims” of the exercise included Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, Daniel Radcliffe and, unsurprisingly, swimmer Ryan Lochte.

The majority of the list doesn’t surprise me, but poor Harry Potter. You should’ve listened to Hermione ages ago.

    It’s a pity that the teacher had not realised that the Daniel Radcliffe twitter account is run by an imposter. Radcliffe only has Google+ (where you can get accurate news and messages). He has repeatedly stated that he has neither Twitter nor Facebook accounts.
