HIQ (High Irony Quotient) Student Work

From a recent TP class…grammar: if only/I should have/I regret (not) ___ etc…in which learners ultimately imagined the deathbed regrets of famous people…

My favorite: “I should have done my work more violently”

    Ha! This is excellent. I’m in the current CELTA course right now, working with the UI students. I see this on the wall every day and am very grateful to come across this clarification! (Though, I have to admit that the unknown was part of the enjoyment, especially with some of the other examples!)

    Yes, it occurs to me the students didn’t quite get the core meaning of “regret”.

Go on! Say what you're thinking...
