Let Me Compaire & Contrust!
“Making errors while learning English is okay, as long as you learn from your errors.”
That is what I shall tell my students when they regularly make, what they call as, stupid mistakes when speaking or writing in English. It is okay students, I will kindly comfort and motivate them. Errors are inevitably natural. Second language learners are bound to commit many “irresistible” errors. Besides, I constantly remind them with this so-called Cekmi’s happy-learning philosophy: “Don’t be embarrassed, students. Enjoy your errors. Make jokes with them. Laugh at them. Come on, it won’t harm you. It is healthy. Don’t be so serious, baby. Smile. Yes. Like me now. Hmmm. Remember, laughter is the best medicine, right? Okay, except when you are asthmatic.”
Har. Har. Har.
Yes indeed. I always laugh at my students’ errors, well of course warmheartedly, not contemptuously. Their errors have never failed to be the ongoing source of fun, enjoyment and amusement for me as a language teacher. For me, this is one of the “blessings” being a never-get-angry academician – to laugh. Of course, they do entertain me and always put a big gentle smile on my already-cute face, especially when I mark their essays. Usually, people around me will show their are-you-crazy looks when they see me chuckling alone while marking students’ essays.
To illustrate, take a friendly look at these spelling errors in their essay writing, and be ready to be intellectually marveled by their feel-good ridiculousness and eye-catching creativity.
