Are we not more capable in our language than those learning it?! Let me explain. In a recent visit to a Spanish speaking classroom learning English, I encountered several praiseworthy laminated note cards placed around the room with the simple task of labeling set before them. However, when I visited and English classroom learning English, I did not find such note worthy note cards such as the nice little ones I found in the spanish speaking classroom. What a dilema! To appropriately express this emotion in empathy for this cause, label a note card:
[in lamentable distress]
and make a face to suit. Thank you for your empathy.
