* I note that it will be a requirement for Year 1 teachers to teach the pronoun "..." ("Mouse deletes literacy hour", TES, April 14). I wish them the best of luck with so many people in the media saying, "Myself and John" or "Mary and myself are going shopping." Let the lessons start with the BBC, otherwise teachers will have an impossible task.
