It All Made Perfect Sense at the Time...


If you who ever wanted to know what kind of stuff gets written on the whiteboard in an EFL class, here you go.
I know, it's a terrible quality image, but for those of you squinting, the large letters are the remnants of a hangman game in which the answer was "serial killer," the top-right collection of dead stick figures is an illustration of the word "massacre," and the two questions in the upper left are "What is Esperanto?" and "Why was it made?"
I had a very good reason for putting all of this on the board, it all made tons of sense in context. Really. I take my job seriously, and I swear that all of those things led, bit-by-bit, to increased fluency for the student.
But the larger point is that I get paid to occasionally draw dead stick figures. Ah, life is good.

I think the most shocking thing about that picture is how legible your handwriting is. What's happened to you?

Actually, when i first got here I got some complaints about my handwriting and have since cleaned it up. Practicing writing in Japanese has also helped it, I think.
I know, I know, my bad handwriting has always been a trademark...
I'm scared too.
