Another cute classroom quote

(and perhaps the last one you’ll ever get, sniff, sniff, at least from an ESOL kid)

I just found this in my e-mail.  I had e-mailed it to myself a long time ago to put on my other blog but I can’t remember if I ever did so I’m just going to add it in here.

This happened probably 3 years ago.  In my high beginner writing class, they had to write a description of someone in the room.  So for the example, I describe myself and included the sentence, “She is the most beautiful woman in the world.”  I wanted to see if they had gotten the joke so I asked them if this was true.

J (from El Salvador) said, “No, miss!  Only for your husband and your mother!”

Pretty smart kid!
