Feeling tension? Try one of these...

The Swahili language is all short vowels and not pronounced exactly the same as English. This transfers into my (Kenyan) students' English pronunciation, and then into their English spelling....

Point 1 of the student's essay I'm just about to mark is headed: "The massage of a true apostle".

I'll certainly read that section with interest. This is the second essay so far it's appeared in.

The other one that came up a few times during term was angles from heaven. As an ex-mathematician I can certainly appreciate those.
