I almost fell off my chair laughing yesterday morning at work (so did my student, by the way). I asked one of my students to do a simple grammar test consisting of a list of sentences. Each sentence contained ONE mistake, which she had to find. She did very well until she reached the following:
“He never wear a hat.”
“Oh no, there is indeed a mistake,” I assured her.
A few more seconds passed.
Finally, just as she was ready to give up, I gave her the following prompt:
“I never wear a hat, YOU never wear a hat, HE…” (I paused.)
She smiled triumphantly and exclaimed, “Oh yes, of course, I need to add an ‘s’!!!”
“Okay, so give me the correct sentence now…” I said.
“He NEVERS wear a hat.”
