My english teacher put a round mark around the word 'ther', I straightened my neck to see what she had written on my classwork notebook. In red ink, she just put a 'i' in between letter 'e' and 'r'. At that time I was in third standard. My teacher patiently corrected a few more silly mistakes. While circling the word 'cheld', her degree of tolerance decreased drastically and shouted, "You make so many spelling mistakes. Your English is very poor." Instead of saying I will improve them, I said, "Actually ma'am, my Hindi (my mother tongue) is also weak." Would she slap me? Amused with witty reply she wrote 'Good'. :)
What do you think does the spell checkers in computer have made writting an easy-to-do task as compared to writting with pen and paper?
