Marcel was given this proofreading exercise to do as his homework this week. I have absolutely nothing against proofreading as an exercise for an 11 year old boy. It will instil both good spelling and attention to detail in him. But look at it:
Sean and Josie stood stil. Just a momment erlyier a fox had crosed the parth, stoped and shakern itself. Then it sliped quiertly away. They waited in silense hopeing to sea it agen, but eventuly relised it must have herd them. Wen they reterned to the car park they sore a notise arsking visters not to disterb the creaters who might be breading at this time of year. "I hope we didn't wurry that buteaful fox," said Joise. "I'm shore we didert," replyed her frend, "but we'll go now and leave all the animles in piece."
