Maybe it was the proximity of a camera, or all those lights, but I found myself thinking a bit harder than a 24 year-old adult should when I took the Wug test with Jean. Thankfully, we native English speakers don’t usually have to think about the mechanics of our rather convoluted language. That’s because we already know it. If we do stop and think about it, though, we see that English has so many exceptions to the rules, so many options. It makes me pity those poor toddlers who have no choice but to take on the task of mastering the English language.

But this blog-maker can safely say that she is a satisfactory English-talker and test-taking lady.
