Whoever wrote that letter must be a very good parent. For all we know it may have been a mother who wrote it. In any case, the letter is something I would love to receive as a teacher.

The way the English language has evolved, I guess it's just a matter of time before "alright" becomes the norm.

Hi. Your forum looks almost exactly like ours which isn't so bad. It's just easier for me to find my way around.  :)  I'm glad to be a member of this site since this will  be of great help to me in helping my students be better communicators in English.

Hi, Mr. Carillo!

I'm happy you invited me to your Forum. Now I have another place to run to in case my students have any questions I couldn't answer.

Anyway, as I was browsing through the sample questions, the last one caught my attention. It concerns your reply to the last inquiry. One of your sentences went: That reminds me of an anecdote told to me by one of my staff.

Isn't it when using the word tell it must be followed by a direct personal object?

I went to several English grammar websites to make sure they all said the same thing, and they did. So your sentence should be: That reminds me of an anecdote one of my staff told me.

I could be wrong, though.  :)
