I’m a newbie here. I have got some reservations on the usage of the word both. To the best of my knowledge, it is followed by are. But in a website I just came across this sentence:
TESOL Canada board exam is required of both native or non-native graduates with or without teaching experience.
Now in this sentence, I personally think the word both should be followed by the conjunction and in lieu of or.
So I’d be grateful if you guys clear this doubt.
