Are You Ready to Win?

Here I am again. Away from home in a foreign country. This time I am staying in Christchurch, UK for three months. After a bumpy flight with EasyJet I was picked up by my really friendly host family. They have a nice little house, four guinea pigs, no TV but enough food to feed hungry, hungry Raphy (sadly not with guinea pigs…) I landed in a really good place. (Again!)

Right here and right now! Obviously I can’t afford to pay someone to correct all my blog posts. So I thought, why not ask all my English speaking friends to do so. This includes everybody who knows a little bit of English. Here is…

  1. Read my blog (-> tons of fun!)
  2. You spot a mistake (-> or two, or three, or four, but hopefully not more…)
  3. You post it(them) in the comments below

  • Spelling mistakes: 1 point
  • Stylistic mistakes: 2 points + 1 point for explanation (also meaning: This sentence seems to be grammatically alright but it would be better this way.)
  • Grammar mistakes: 3 points + 2 points for explanation

Who will win?
