I’ve taught English to two-year-olds in split bottom pants. The trick there is not letting them sit on your lap for storytime.
I’ve taught English to bartenders and asked them to repeat after me. Bud…Wise…Er…
I’ve taught businessmen and doctors, flight attendants and fry cooks.
I’ve taught Little Emperors in large classes, I’ve taught university students and training school students and done English Corners galore.
Yesterday was the first time, though, in nearly seven years of ESL in China, that a Western businessman wanted to pay me to teach his favorite prostitute English while he is out of the country so next time he comes to town they won’t have to bring an electronic dictionary to bed.
Yeah that’s a new one, even for me.
