I Taught My Student Grammar. She Used Her Grammar Knowledge to Teach Me About Life.



My student and I were on our way to a buffet. It was dusk, and the evening star was already visible in the horizon.

“Look at the star. It’s beautiful, but it’s alone.” I said with a sigh.

“Teacher, you said that the adjective we want to emphasize must be placed after the conjunction but. I want to improve the focus of your sentence. The star is alone, but it’s beautiful.  I think it’s better that way. It sounds more positive.”
