Ave, Young!

My friend Young Chun has put out his latest book, which is a guide to student errors for EFL teachers in Korea. Young describes the book as a collection of student gaffes he has encountered over the years. He thought it would be helpful to create a book that lists the most common of those mistakes, along with explanations as to why they happen, and suggestions for more natural speech. In the above-linked blog post, Young provides a sample of how his book tackles these problems; it makes for interesting reading.

I wish Young the best. He admits that the market for such a book is relatively small and restricted, given that it's for EFL teachers in Korea, and he says he'll be glad to sell even twenty copies. I'll certainly be buying a copy, so make that nineteen.
