Home Office Spelled Language Wrong While Announcing A New Language Test For Foreigners
Everybody get their laughs in. Go ahead, make the obligatory joke about how a company that's responsible for teaching the English language accidentally misused it in the process. I get it. It's ironic. Well, I am here to tell you that while this snafu is rather funny, turning your nose up at it makes you a hypocrite. Everyone, and I mean everyone, has fallen victim to an accidental typo from time to time. Just yesterday I was texting with a friend and they called me out on a misspelled word. I made the point that I was texting, and if there was going to be a time when it was okay for a blogger to fist-fuck literacy it would be during casual, meaningless conversation. The same goes for Home Office. If Home Office is going to fail to proofread their emails they might as well be emails indirectly geared toward people that don't know how to read. By the time these test takers figure out the mistake they will already be well adjusted citizens. The key to success isn't the avoidance of mistakes, it's limiting the consequences of those mistakes, and by all accounts 'Home Office' is doing a fantastic job.
Plus, 'language' is a great word to misspell. Half the people reading it wouldn't even have noticed it until this tweet pointed it out. Fucking Sophy Ridge. Couldn't be a more perfect name for a grammar policewoman. Of course some broad named Sophy is going around pointing out everyone's flaws. That's what Sophy's do. They hide their own insecurities by criticizing everyone else around them for the smallest of missteps. Maybe Home Office doesn't have the most fleet of fingers, but at least they don't hate themselves, and that's more than can be said for this vowel nazi.
