HLS English Classes Kuantan
I occasionally say "Oh my word" when I've told a student a number of times how to do something, and they still didn't do it right! I have to be more patient, I know. I am slowing down my speech and simplifying things to the extent that 'broken English' is the only way to get through to some students. Proper English just will not work if their standard is very low :/
However, the phrase "Oh my word" shows that I'm a true logophile - "a lover of words." Words are great, they carry power. I often read the dictionary, scribble down new words and feverishly write sentences with them. I have piles of papers of new words in a folder.
It is fascinating to learn new words!
