What this blog is for and about

I also offer personally-tailored, individualized English conversation practice (including etiquette) and coaching in writing techniques. Finally, I edit texts such as magazines, business proposals, memorandums, emails so they are presented in English which does not embarrass you or your organization. For further details, please mail me at: language.etiquette@gmail.com

A rather good joke

A friend in Scotland has just sent me a rather good joke. Maybe you’ve heard it before, but it has enough of a language aspect to allow me to post it here for the benefit of those who have not.

     Angela Merkel arrives at passport control in Athens:
     “Nationality?” asks the immigration officer.

     “German,” she replies.
      “No, just here for a few days.”
