Engrish at last!

The 8th grade students at the school were given a questionnaire with the question:
"Where do you see yourself in 10 years?"

One child decided to use their obviously stunning knowledge of definite articles and answered:

"In 10 years, I will live in the Big house."
Subtleties impossible to teach.

This kid also was going to "the university" in "the London" and traveling to "the New York".

When in doubt, add articles.
