The Grammar Nazi

 

 

Most people make the sad mistake of believing that education happens at school. In fact, what happens at school, especially in a public school system, is the minimum amount of education necessary to enable you to get a job at a convenience store or gas station.
And if you're an international student, the situation is even worse. Almost all education is designed to be vocational, and you are practically forced into a choice of careers by fifth grade. Then, should you either change your mind about what you might want to be when you grow up or find that you are not in the top 10% of the people in your career path, you are left with virtually nothing.

Now you start scrambling. You read every chat board, memorize rankings, and talk to everyone who shows even the slightest bit of interest. But none of it seems particularly helpful; what should you do?

Depending on your country, your socioeconomic background, and your family's and community's support, you may find your options limited. That's why you should begin educating yourself and taking charge of your own educational future as much and as young as you can.

If you want to attend an elite college, or any graduate school,you need your brain to be in 5th gear. Start revving your mental engine NOW.

How can you prepare yourself for a future that you might not even be able to name yet?

By reading high-vocabulary magazines:

No matter what your intellectual or political leanings, one of those should suit you. Notice that Time, Newsweek, People, and Sports Illustrated aren't on the list. They're generally written for people with a high school to college vocabulary, and it's time to aim higher.
