I was looking a site called Innocent English – which posts things like funny English signs, ads and videos. And I saw one sign with a funny mistake on it that I thought I’d tell you about.
It was a sign made by the mayor of a small town in Illinois in the United States. The mayor sounds like he was annoyed that some immigrants or tourists don’t speak English very well, and so he made this sign demanding that people learn English. The sign says: English is our language no excetions learn it. Which is pretty funny – that word is missing the p. It should say: exceptions.
I think it’s a really good idea to study English by reading about things that you’re interested in. So if you’re interested in American celebrities – like musicians or movie stars – then I recommend this site.
It seems to have slightly more class than the other celebrity gossip magazines or websites. It’s less of the harassing celebrities for putting on a few kilos or losing a few kilos - and mostly stuff like photos of celebrities at events, talking about their outfits or announcing that someone has got engaged or married or whatever.
Here’s an example from their Star Tracks section. It’s a photo of Angelina Jolie leaving a hotel. And the caption says:
OUTWARD BOUND Angelina Jolie has a rare solo moment without her brood as she steps out Monday in New York City, where the Oscar nominee reportedly checked out apartments.
