Something to Share
English - with so many people using the language actively - is a great medium to tell stories, share quotes,
poems and pictures. So, lets have a go!
The Irish have a specific culture and wit. They don't hesitate to discuss thorny subjects like religion.
Some quotes from famous Irish authors:
- I'm an atheist and I thank God for it. (George Bernard Shaw)
- The Catholic Church is for saints and sinners. For respectable people the Anglican church will do. (Oscar Wilde)
- Irish atheists have started a Dial-A-Prayer service; when you ring them, nobody answers. (Hal Roach)
- Become a Protestant? Certainly not. Just because I've lost my faith doesn't mean I've lost my reason. (James Joyce)
A flash of English:
lots of people don't know when to use 'a' or 'an'.
The spelling rule is dictated by the way how we say the next word:
If you start the next word with a vowel (een klinker) then you write 'an'
If you say the next word with an consonant ( een medeklinker), you write 'a'
So: an apple an hour a hobby a book a uniform an unfair game
