Grammar-Friend or Foe by Anirah Drew

         Trust me, we all made grammar mistakes before. Grammar is one of the most common things people make mistakes over. Personally I think grammar is hard and could take some time to learn. Then there are people who just don't use proper grammar at all. Kyle Weins' article "I won't hire people who use poor grammar, he say that some might call his approach to grammar extreme. Grammar was taught in grade school and if you are 20 looking for a job and you have bad grammar, you can kiss your chances goodbye.
        Weins says that people who make fewer grammar mistakes on a grammar test also make fewer mistakes when they are doing something completely unrelated to writing. Grammar is super important to all ages. Have you ever had to correct someones grammar every time they talk? It annoys you, doesn't it? Kyle Weins is a grammar stickler which means he has a low tolerance for grammar. I mean, texting is a different story. You're with your friends and you use slang or you text in slang. That's okay on some levels but if you are talking to me and I can't understand you because of your wide use of slang, stop talking immediately or I will flip. If you think grammar doesn't apply for an easy job, you're soo wrong. Every job has a grammar test so you won't get the easy way out applying for a janitor or waitress. Kyle Weins got his point across by saying that he will not hire you if your grammar is terrible even if you are perfect for the job. End of discussion.
           Look, You will be judge by your grammar. Use it all the time so you wont have to be judge. Easy as that.

  5. I agree, grammar is one of the necessities of everyday life. We should periodically use our grammar correctly. I see that this school shows interests on "memes". Nice job!

  9. I agree completely with you. Grammar is so important in our lives even though many people just ignore it. I like how you brought up the texting ordeal. Because almost everybody texts constantly, they try to get by with using slang when that should never be acceptable. I really enjoyed your post.

  12. I agree with you. I agree with this because I think that grammar is a big deal because it is the way we talk. I also think that when you are with your friends you can slack off a little bit. I agree with your blog.

  13. Hello Anirah! I like your post! I do however disagree slightly. I agree that if your want a "good" job you will be a better candidate with correct grammar. But, I don't think it's a necessity. For example, if your job was brainstorming different ideas for lets say a magazine and you didn't have perfect grammar but your ideas were fantastic, I don't think people would really care. I think it depends a lot on the job your applying for and what kind of people who you will be dealing with. Nice job!

    1. You had a very good point but say you are in a meeting talking about your magazine and one of your coworker corrected you because in the article in the magazine you had some grammatical errors. How would you feel to be corrected? Other than that , You made good points Olivia and Thank you!

  14. Hello! I do agree with you. I think good grammar is helpful for example if you have a job as the president you have to make a lot of speeches and and if you have make a lot of mistakes it doesn't sound good.

    1. Thank you Liam! I think as a president if you have bad grammar that would give you a bad image of yourself

  15. Hi! I thought your post was really good because you had a lot of good information about grammar. Why do you think you need grammar to be a janitor?

  16. Hello. I like this post, but I happen to disagree with you. I don't think that grammar is that hard at all. It's probably just me, but I really do think that grammar isn't that hard at all.
