Yes Iain, but don't you think its a bit elitist to do the webchat in Latin?
Another socialist/communist victory according to FoxI love itChina, Cyprus and now USAnext it will be Russiawere on our way back
Are you giving lessons in a foreign language?
As Wrinkled Weasel pointed out - Latin is deemed "elitist" in certain quarters - and I would add, usually by the Comrades. It was reported recently - by, amongst others, the Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation - that Bournemouth Council has "banned Latin" [and that council is Conservative run].Indeed, Bournemouth Council has issued this retraction/clarification on the Council website's home page:"Use of Latin words - Inaccurate reporting in recent national media "Bournemouth Council must correct inaccurate reporting in several national media."The Council has not banned any Latin words or phrases. Two years ago, we issued advice to our staff to encourage plain, appropriate and easily-understood language. This includes considering whether or not various phrases, including jargon and Latin, are appropriate for the particular audience that the information is aimed at." [Clumsy grammar in that last phrase suggests the writer is also in need of help!] Link:http://www.bournemouth.gov.uk/News/press_office/Press_Releases/October/Inaccuratereports.asp
