Teach me!

I haven’t been very (read: at all) active on my website lately because I’ve been studying in the eveneings for a TEFL/TESOL certificate. Now I’ve got the bugger it means I am ‘qualified’ to teach Engrish as a foreign language. That’ll help in the winter, as I’m teaching English in Shanghai. The reason that I want to teach English to people who don’t have it as their first language is to rid the world of the word ‘surge’ as an alternative to ‘rise’ or ‘increase’. Example:

West End reports summer sales boom despite credit crunch – “INTERNATIONAL high-rollers splashed their cash in the West End in a summer boom which defied the downturn hitting the rest of the UK…..The number of shoppers hitting central London surged by 2.5 per cent in ­August compared with the same month last year.”

2.5% isn’t even the sampling error in opinion polls. Go statistifick yourself.
