Not only foreigners, but also native speakers have their problems with the English language. Quite often, teachers despair when reading their pupils’ texts. Most mistakes are made when words are pronounced the same, e.g. their/there, its/it’s etc. (来源:EnglishCN英语问答中心[e问e答])

When worse comes to worse, some students simply shorten their texts to SMS. This is what a 12-year-old Schottish girl in her 7th year did in her composition about her last holiday.

How good is your SMS English? Try to read the text below. Move the mouse pointer over the Information sign to see the answers.
