Actually, USA's literacy rates aren't THAT high... Cuba, Estonia, Poland, Barbados, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Hungary, Russia, Latvia, and a whole bunch of other countries all have higher literacy rates than the United States. And to the OP: Sucks for you. Who knows what they were saying about you? "I T-H-I-N-K W-E S-H-O-U-L-D H-A-V-E O-U-R C-H-I-L-D C-H-E-C-K-E-D O-U-T" "Y-O-U A-R-E P-R-O-B-A-B-L-Y R-I-G-H-T" On another note, this could happen to me. But that's just because my parents speak very quickly, not because I can't spell.
ahhahahhahahahahha the USA having a high literacy rate ahahhahahhahahhahh. u guys think canadians live in igloos ..... and think hockey is pronounced hackey ... u guys can't even pronounce A's and u think u think the US is smart give me a fucking brake ... foreigns speak better english than americans
Hold on #124. So you sit there criticizing, and then along comes the line "...u guys can't even pronounce A's and u think u think the US is smart give me a fucking brake"? Oh please. That is just pathetic. And don't even get me started on the rest of your grammatical failures. Hypocrite.
I agree with you #124. I'm a Canadian too, and proud. I have met countless ignorant Americans. You have all these sterotypes for us, like how we pronounce "out" "oot", that we live in IGLOOS, that everyone plays hockey and drinks maple syrup, that all we can talk about are hunting moose and owning pet beavers, I mean jesus christ people, give us a break! None of those sterotypes are true! Oh, and did you know that Canadians have the most neutral english accent? That's right, if you can speak in a "Canadian accent" you have a chance at an acting career. What they don't want is any of the "American accents" like from New Jersey, or New York, or southern, etc. So seriously, stop dissing Canadians, because honestly, we think you americans are a bunch of fat, ignorant, idiots. Just so you know.
131 I'm Canadian too and I don't think Americans are fat and ignorant, sure there may be lots but just like every other country we all have fat, dumb, skinny, handicapped etc. etc people. I also think the stereotypes are hilarious especially when south park does them so stfu u hypocritical asshole
okay for the record, the world is full of fucking idiots, not just one country. the human race is generally just idiots, with a few smart people mixed in. and no, the U.S. doesnt have very high rates of anything nowadays. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Gx6F4MaakBM watch this video. it explains alot.
3rd ZOMG 3RD!!!! really dude? nobody fucking cares. to the OP- it's ok...we all have those moments...when we're 8
hooray!!! but nobody's giving me shit...i guess i failed at being a troll...lmao...
#66 - I believe you mean onomatopoeia... and you're...but, I digress (beaten to this while I was writing the novel below). I actually agree with the others commenting on the learning styles. Did none of you have a specific teacher or class that had you go through the tests to determine which type you were? I am primarily visual, semi-kinetic. As far as aural/auditory knowledge retention goes, I'm not as bad as the OP, but I do tend to forget information a LOT quicker if I only hear it instead of seeing it demonstrated or reading it. I used to participate (and win) spelling bees, however, so... yeah, guess you've got a 0 in auditory learning (I'm only a 2 on a scale of 10, visual is 9, kinetic is 4). You might want to consider looking into getting some vocabulary software that has vocal pronunciation and spelling of words. This is only an FML if you do nothing to change it!
