I asked a question on the use of words and although the topic is correct, the context is not.
Newbie alert, I apologize for posting my question here. Created my own thread, thank you.

Okay, easy on the English teachers. There is probably more to the story here. After you have read 125 stories written by 7th graders who only have "he/she said" in their toolbox, you too might go a little overboard banning a few words. Personally, I don't ban it, but I do have my students explore during revision other ways to handle the situation. The goal of every good English teacher should be to help, encourage, and motivate new writers to explore language. Yes, sometimes that means taking away a crutch for a little bit while they try out other options.

Everything wrong with the Wall Street journal! (I don't want to subscribe xD)

But for everything you have been saying, from my side I never had someone to criticize my writing. My teachers weren't interested on making us writing when we were children and most of the people I know have really little vocabulary (I mean, right from an study, there are parts of the poblation here that only uses about 150 words. No more). They live without any grammatical rules (chatting with them on facebook is hell. They wont ever use commas) and terrible pronunciation. They made up verbs, even.

Everything I learned (and maybe is not as much as you know, guys) comes from my efforts and love of reading. I think that we do need teachers to work on vocabulary and expression, even if the kid won't be a Dickens.

(Also, I have read some of the worst literature made in my city. Really bad literature).
