Australia runs a campaign advertising a literacy and numeracy support program using a jingle for a 1800 number that numerate people are not ever going to remember...

I was once asked to teach a group of 10 Khmers who could not speak ANY English.

An extremely difficult task, aggravated by the (western) employer who could/would not understand why one hour a week was worse than useless, it only made students more frustrated.

There is a good reason why most schools get local teachers to do beginner levels.

I think you meant "taught" not "had".

If I said, "every student that I've had", it might be misconstrued. lol

Jesus, you're right.
"Life is too important to take seriously."

"Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh."

Good point.

Hmmm. Are there English speakers teaching Swedish, and taking the jobs of Swedish TSFLers? : - ) ( why won't my smileys work?)

From the website
" Despite being a non native English speaker I feel my English is up to par with the native speakers and they acknowledge this as well. "

I think it needs work!

But good luck. ( beers smiley lol )
