English Language

Plural form of the noun 'crisis'

I am writing a motivational letter (one of many Laughing out loud) in order to apply to a graduate programme. 

I had to double check the plural form of 'crisis', and it turns out... it is, in fact, 'crises'. 

So now you know too! Unless you already knew Winking

Almost like Swedish, where ”kris” becomes ”kriser”. :-)

Sometimes I feel that studying other languages has both improved my English and also made it worse! Haha I am a horrible speller and I often make up wordsLaughing

I often do the same thing with plurals as well! I remember a time where I just couldn't remember the plural for focus (foci) Laughing
