English Corner

Last week, I was discussing with my colleagues how inappropriate for our HR to circulate emails with grammar mistakes.

Example:
1. How will it LOOKS like?
Shouldn't it be, "How will it look like?"
Auxilary verb rule -> it will turn plural.

2. A memo was written in Malay, but it ended with "Warmest Regards".
3. Very extremely use of flowery words.

4. And now, I realised that I wrote an email incorrectly stating the time as 12pm.
oopssiee.. because we have been doing it all the time and didn't realise that it's WRONG until I'm being corrected. :P (thanks char boh)
