I gave my ESL students a writing exercise, write about “your goals and dreams”. This is from a 12 year old girl, unedited:
“When I was 6 years old my goals was be the president of Peru to change Peru, because Peru in the past was horrible and destroyed by other presidents…”
And a few other excerpts:
“Now I’m 12 years old… I plan to collect a lot of money to construct a big house … I plan to buy other house to give to my parents, because they did anything to me.”
Maybe I’m being sentimental because we’re getting ready to have our own baby soon, but I thought that was worth sharing.
