I stumbled upon a very funny complaint by someone. His thought was on how Nigerian Students were fond of using the word “I was Like ok” in there English. Some call it an English blunder, while others may just find it rather very inward as the forming (Style). Read up what the gentle man had to say regarding these words below.
Ignore Typo from these words below:
“I have been wondering why Nigerian students always use the word ‘i was like ok’ in every of their saying… I found it difficult to believe that ‘i was like ok’ is a correct short sentence, in English…
because I have sat down and think about this all over and over and over,and through research I found that there is no short sentence in English, like ‘i was like ok’.. but some Nigerians are so terrible when it comes to the aspects of speaking or writing standard English…
A student of unilorin came to meet my big bro at home,and he said I have been trying your number since I left Lagos and I WAS LIKE OK LET ME CALL YOUR YOUNGER BROTHER TO CONFIRM..”
immediately,I felt the ‘spirit of bad English’ in what he said above… since then I have been searching,I have been asking those who are highly educated and those who study English in universities.. if the use of I WAS LIKE OK is good to speak.. ”
What do you think of this guys complaint? Does he make sense. Oya o, Over to you English people because i am not an English kid o.
