    Hi Red

    This is a very interesting article.
    That means I don`t have to worry about misspelling words from now on . Well, I am still worried about that and I try not to make mistakes as much as possible. I say "as much as possible" because I am aware of the fact that not being a native English speaker I might make mistakes any time whether I like it or not .
    I am not happy with the idea that "many trainee teachers are struggling to pass tests in numeracy, literacy and information technology",as" figures show" and some of them even fail a third time, but this problem is a common one in other countries too.

    Thank you .

    Keep in touch.
