Grammar cops: Brazilian schoolchildren edition

There is nothing that deserves this particular corner of the internet today more than a group of Brazilian elementary school students.

In an effort to improve their own English, these students monitored Twitter for celebrities with bad grammar — and called them out on it.

She’s my rock so I hold on to she tight!!!http://t.co/N8PQIwHudE

I wish this had been my idea. I walk around life with a metaphorical red pen correcting other people’s grammar and spelling, and I love that these children are able to do that for real — or at least as real as Twitter is.

I hope the celebrities come up with some kind of grammatical apology and realize that they are role models for children around the globe. But until then — godspeed, Brazilian children!!

You can read the full story on Buzzfeed or on the Huffington Post.
