As usual, I had to correct the students a few times in class today. Here’s some examples.
A: Can you go to a soccer game with me on Saturday?
B: I’m sorry. I can’t. I have to go to a soccer game.
A: Can you go skating with me on Sunday?
B: I’m sorry. I can’t. I have to wound my leg.
A: I’ve made a decision.
B: What is it?
A: I’ve decided to stop biting my nails.
B: That’s great! Have you ever tried to stop biting my nails before?
Think it’ll be a while yet, folks, before we get that one world language.
