Jealous No More


The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is a standardized test given to foreign students who want to study in the United States. But even those who meet a school’s cutoff score sometimes suffer from inadequate English skills.  I remember hearing about the international student who when asked “Do you prefer yellow or blue?” replied “Yes.”

I thought about that story yesterday when I said to Peter, “How are we going to decide which movie to see?”  His answer, “OK.”

Peter was born in Germany.  I wonder how he did on the TOEFL.
