It would be so much easier for everyone

This afternoon, Deadly was teaching the class about directions - how to give them and how to follow them. He was on the home stretch and the class were looking at their mythical village maps trying to plot routes from the hospital to the castle etc. The class was abuzz as they worked in pairs trying to find the best route. Finally most of the class finished and Deadly (using our highly advanced technology - an overhead projector) was drawing the routes that the students were describing.

One student, Jenny, was getting very confused about which was left and right and the difference between an intersection and a t-intersection. The route that she was describing (and that Deadly was drawing in) was going nowhere near the castle and was so convoluted that the whole class was mystified.

Finally she just blurted out "can't we take a taxi to the castle?".

It seems she has a perfectly acceptable grasp of the english language.
