“So often you find that the students you are trying to inspire are the one’s that inspire you.”

Over the years I have had many laughs with my students when translating words from their language into English. I’d like to share a few.
Toes ….foot fingers
Thumb ….big man finger
Wrist watch …small time on hand

And a genuine question from a student.
“Teacher, if plural of mouse is mice, the plural of house be hice?” 😃

Some English puns to share:
A bicycle can’t stand alone. It is two tired.
A boiled egg is too hard to beat.
A dentist and a manicurist married. They fought tooth and nail.
Why do feet smell…and noses run?

These are just some of many reasons why I love teaching.
