Research Papers and L2

Source
I'm sitting in my office grading a pile of Research Papers. It is 20:17; I need to be finished by midnight. It is a tedious activity, but there are moments that make the process quite interesting. For instance, the paper I am currently busy with considers the causes for Macbeth's tragedy. In one section that discusses Macbeth's reluctance to kill King Duncan, the student wrote the following sentance:

"Lady Macbeth persuades him by stimulating his manhood." 

Working with L2 speakers sure has its perks!

Dit was die hoogtepunt van die aand. Het darem betyds klaar gekry met my merkwerk; ongelukkig was nie al die mini-verhandelinge so interesant nie.
