Fix my English! New weekly activity!
Today, I have a challenge for you! Let’s have some fun learning English!
I see English in every country around the world. Sometimes there is English on a shop sign, on a menu, on a T-shirt or in a song or an advertisement.
The problem is, these signs are not always correct! I have seen some companies use English because they think it looks cool, but the English is wrong!
For example, above is a sign I found. The sign is on a door to the fire hose.
The sign says: “Dangrous Don’t use the Fire Water!!!” Activity: Can you fix the English? Write in the comments what you think would be the correct English for this sentence. CHALLENGE: Let’s share what we find and have some fun! 1. When you are out, look around your city or town. 2. If you see an English sign, take a photo of it and email it to me. Maybe your sign will have good English, but maybe not! That is part of the fun! You don’t need a special camera. I took my photo using my mobile phone! 3. All pictures sent to me will be put up on this site (one each week). Then we can challenge each other to FIX THIS ENGLISH! EMAIL ALL PICTURES TO: admin[at]askjohnenglish.comTIP: [at] = @ Remember, I hope to put a new picture up each week. Then you can try to ‘Fix this English’! Send me some English from where you live soon!
