Meet the Celebrity grammar cops (8-year old kids!)

by Otis Day


School kids in Brazil have been learning English by correcting the grammar and spelling of celebrities on Twitter.

The leading English school in Brazil started having their 8 to 13 year old students correct tweets from celebrities and the kids call themselves the Celebrity Grammar Cops. The kids send very polite corrections to many famous people including Rihanna, Sylvester Stallone, Justin Bieber, Charlie Sheen, Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, etc.

Many celebs have been corrected for using were instead of we're. Kim Kardashian and her whole family consistently use "I" when they should use "me" (example: "Bruce took Khloe and I out to dinner.") 

EXAMPLE:

Justin Bieber @justinbieber
Some video games. Some old movies… That was a long bus ride. But we here. #sleep

Red Balloon @redballoonBR
Hi, @justinbieber! My name is Maria, I'm 9 and I'm a fan from Brazil. Watch out: it's "we're here" not "we here". : )
