I don't think they teach grammar anymore. My son is 9 and i had to teach him what a verb was the other week. When i asked his teacher she said "well they're a little young for that". Too young to be taught how your own language works? Education systems all over the world seem to be in the decline but in the age of the internet there's no excuse for ignorance. Sad times.
Maybe we should start running a class that teaches language skills and head at the same time?! How many illiterate men would sign up if they got to recite verbs, nouns and adjectives with their mouth on a pussy?
