Celebrity Tweets Corrected by Young Brazilian Students (Grammar Matters)

This is what I called "epic." Young students from Brazil corrected the grammar and spelling mistakes committed by famous celebrities in Twitter. These celebrities include Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Kim Kardashian. Grammar indeed matters! Keep the good work guys. At least these youngsters knew the proper use of social media other than posting unnecessary memes. Have fun while learning the English language. 

were vs we're

were vs we're (again) - someone please teach Kim when to use were and we're

brain, not brane! spelling matters Charlie!

it have been - it has been ; amaizing - amazing! Dan, I love you in Harry Potter but be sure to check the spelling first before tweeting!

Justin thanks for helping the typhoon victims in Tacloban but please use "we're" not "we". This young Brazilian student is particular with grammar!

I never saw I've never seen (Hi there John!)

herd heard - we are not talking about animals here Ryan. 

I love your songs Riri but you need to correct your grammar here! It should be "her" not "she". 

Thanks TheBerry for the heads up! Not all native English speakers know the proper use of grammar! Boost up your confidence when conversing or writing in the English language. You are not only preparing yourself for an English proficiency exam like the IELTS but you are also improving the world!
