No, nothing like that. I assure you, my French is infinitely worse than your English, but when learning a 2nd language we often pick up unacceptable slang and don't even know it.

I'd much rather that someone pointed it out to me, than repeat improper language usage. We're all judged by our literacy. Improving ones knowledge is admirable, while accepting illiteracy is unconscionable. It's amazing how many people take little pride in how they convey themselves to the world.

You were doing a great job showcasing your school. Especially due the subject matter, I thought it appropriate to point out the error. I hope you didn't mind.

By the way, I didn't know that Concordia had another campus further west till I googled their football stadium. I used to live in Montréal and could never figure out where their stadium was. Now I know why I couldn't find it.

No, the illiterate ones don't care because they don't know any better. The rest understand what you're saying, but are more likely to dismiss the content of your message due to the rudimentary language knowledge displayed.

I don't care, I was just under the assumption that you were literate and making a clever joke. I was obviously wrong on both accounts. You're the one who's going to suffer from it, not me. So, I will run along and leave you to revel in it.

Now back to universities; a place where people take education seriously!

University of Kuala Lumpur (UniKL) is private university which is a technical university based in Kuala Lumpur. Meanwhile the main university of the country which also located in KL is University of Malaya (UM). The Main Campus is located in the suburb of Lembah Pantai, southwest of Kuala Lumpur. UM has three campuses, two located in Kuala Lumpur and the other located in Kelantan.

If you didn't care you would've ignored my posts instead of replying.

I don't mind at all. Yes, we do have another campus further west located in the NDG district. The second campus is far nicer and takes more of an "oxford" architecture, and just this winter we got a new Dome for sports.



The main entrance to campus:

Thanks for digging that up. I had no idea! What's under the dome, a practice field for soccer/field hockey/track/football? It doesn't look like Concordia is a big college football school. There are no stands at all, or are they on the other side of the field only? Overall, the campus is a nice surprise though.
