A lot of the passages here purporting to be quotations from essays, books, textbooks and articles are written in bad or incorrect English. Some learners have consistently quoted nothing but bad English. Why is that so? Are learners hampered like me by big fingers on a small phone keyboard, and the mistakes are only typos. Or do they read a lot of rubbish material written in bad English? If so, why? There is really no need to read rubbish. There are so many good books and newspapers available.
