Brazilian School Kids Have Been Learning English By Correcting Celebrities’ Grammar On Twitter

“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’”

1. Red Balloon is the leading English school in Brazil and a few months ago they had their students correct celebrities’ tweets.

5. According to a video about the project, the teachers at the school wanted to make sure the kids knew their idols weren’t right when it came to spelling and grammar.
