I teach English at a local school. I’ve mentioned it before, in fact it was in my last post :-).
The kids say some priceless things to me.
Here’s a selection from this week.
French kid #1: (in French) ‘Why don’t you speak English to us all the time?’
Me: (In English) ‘If I spoke English to you all the time would you understand me?’
French kid #1: (In French) ‘What?’
French kid #2 (After 45 minutes spent colouring by numbers in English while watching a cartoon in English and having questions asked by me – in English): ‘When are we going to start the English?’
French kid #3: ‘You speak French with an English accent’
Me: ‘Because I’m English’
French kid #3: ‘You’re English?’
French kid #3: ‘Oh, I thought you were from Paris’
