Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Paris Hilton taught lesson in English on Twitter by Brazilian schoolchildren

A pioneering English school in Brazil has helped its pupils to understand the pitfalls of social media by getting them to point out the grammatical errors made by celebrities on Twitter.

The precocious students have left A-list stars from Sylvester Stallone to Rihanna red-faced by pointing out misuse of the English language in their tweets.

Here is a selection of their charming suggestions for the stars (whose command of the English language appears to be a lot less impressive than the children’s):

  • Lucas Gallindo

    Wait, Rihanna is Caribbean?

  • Matthew McVeagh

    She comes from Barbados doesn’t she?
