Socializing

Hello again.

I have some exercises today on ‘socialising’. My spell checker thinks I have made a “mistake” there because my spell checker is American and I am British. We tend to write words like this with an “ise” ending though it is still correct to use the common American ending of “ize”. So if I write ‘socializing’, my spell checker is happy 🙂

Another difference can be seen in the exercises. We talk about “holiday” where Americans say “vacation”. Americans do use the word “holiday” but in a sense more closely related to the idea of “holy day”.

The exercises use Flash and will not work on many tablets or phones. I am working hard on a solution to this and hope to have suitable exercises available some time in September.

Unit 3 – Sociali(s/z)ing 😉
