First, in Round One of the U.S. Presidential election he stunned critics by soundly beating the "invincible" Hillary Clinton in the state of Iowa. Illinois Senator Barrack Obama, proved he is "the real deal."

I keep sending complaints

about this character called Colonel Kal Korff, all in vain. He makes so many mistakes, it is beginning to be pathetic. I am not a native speaker of English, however, I can see the spelling and gramar mistakes that look like they come from not very well educated person. Did he even graduate High School ? Is he really American? Maybe, maybe not. I keep sending "tip redakci". It does not seem to have any effect on his bosses. It is really embarasing that such person should teach English to poor unsuspecting Czechs, since he does not master the language. Idnes should be ashamed for paying to this clown for his "work".

tady zase zmizely prispevky

volajici po demisi jednoho ucitele "anglictiny" i s jejich nalezitym oduvodnenim:-/

Je na povazenou, ze redakce iDnes zrejme nevidi (nebo nechce videt?) nic zavadneho na "kvalite" anglictiny jaka tu je nic netusicim ceskym ctenarum-studentum prezentovana.....to presto, ze tu uz nekolik mesicu podavame stiznosti na vazne nedostatky v otiskovanych lekcich, jako neznalosti v zakladni gramatice a pravopisu, pouzivani neexistujicich vyrazu a dokonce i chyb v prekladech do cestiny.

Uz jsem se nekolikrat obratil na redakci iDnes s nanejvyse slusne formulovanou prosbou, aby opatrili panu Korffovi asistenta, jehoz anglictina ma potrebnou uroven, aby tyhle lekce zkorigoval nez jdou do tisku. Ctenarum iDnes, kteri se domnivaji, ze se tu nauci spravne anglicky, se nedostava co jim bylo prislibeno.

Re: tady zase zmizely prispevky

I am a native-speaker who teaches English to Czech lawyers. I have three points to make about our esteemed Mr Korff. 1. all of his columns are filled with basic spelling and errors. 2. he knows nothing about English grammar (for example, his advice to Czechs struggling with phrasal verbs was to "think literal" - useless advice, given that the whole reason phrasal verbs cause trouble is that they cannot be interepreted literally). 3. he is a fantasist and a liar - for example, he regularly claims to be a colonel in a mythical organisation called the "Special Secret Services" (if it's so secret - why does he write about it in his columns?) which he says is devoted to fighting Al Quaeda!. He spits on the deeds and graves of genuine heros every time he opens his mouth.

It is clear that none of his bosses speak a word of English - otherwise he'd have been fired a long time ago. If you are as outraged as me by his ridiculous antics, then you should complain directly to his bosses at idnes.cz (stanislav.holec@idnes.cz a jaroslav.kabele@idnes.cz) and Metropolitni Expres (dopisy@expresdenik.cz

redakce@expresdenik.cz a mms@expresdenik.cz). It is time this imbecile was sent back to America - or at least was made to crawl back into the hole he emerged from!

You're a disgrace, Korff - as are the people who employ you.

Well, what do you expect?

The Czech at idnes is just as bad as výKal's English. I have also sent several complaints.

PS...

...you should read the sidebar to the full version at http://data.zpravy.cz/expres/pdf/20080129.pdf (page 11), in which Kal explains how he avoids catching colds.

"My 'secret' is physics, in the form of Cayenne Pepper."

Huh? What the *&^% has pepper got to do with physics, Kal?
