These last years I’ve been compiling a collection of linguistic mistakes I happened to read on Twitter. These tweets have been great real examples for my students. They found them fun and challenging.  Here it is a small selection of the top 30 and different ways to exploit this freebie.

The presentation is pretty simple:

  1. Students get a tweet and they try to find orthographic mistakes
  2. Click and the mistake is highlighted to confirm or to show what is actually wrong with the text
  3. The students then try to explain why is it wrong
  4. Click again and a linguistic, detailed explanation will appear. You can then teach them the reason in a more detailed manner with the linguistic explanation and the example corrected.
