Q: Language teaching: "I have to go ... pee!"

 

'How would you understandably explain the meaning of this sentence, of course without profanity, to Level 1 English students?'

 

 

L1 students in capital of Turkey-stan are Beginner English learners and my 18 - 22 year old students English ability is very similar to pre-school Chinese students.

 

We have passed Phonetics and Grammatical set-up of Present Simple & Continuous Tense.

 

 

It is very rare at this mill, but my class is 10, male only, students class.

I usually speak to students without adjusting my talk to different English levels I work with.

Instead, I write new word or whole sentence on the Board and then ... 'Do you understand?'. 

That's how it happened, so I posted Q to English teachers ... on this Board. 

 

There are some requirements to fully 'understand' my 'lesson':

 

''Readers must compromise and follow my ''lesson's' instructions"!

 

I mean, you can't only read, you must follow my guidance same as L1 students did!

 

OK, here we go:

 

1. Stand-up!

 

2. Extend your arm with an open palm in my direction!

OK!

 

3. Bend your thumb like you want to show 'no.4' with remaining open fingers..

Good!

 

4. Lower/close four open fingers like you want to make a fist ...

 

5. Move your half fist to the crotch area ... and 'peeeee ..'

 

 

Students are entering morning classes with smirk on their faces. 

Some of them went to the Mill's (not MIL...he he!) office and spoke to Turkish reps. about 'how my English lessons are very good'.

I had to show/make one female rep. 'follow-my-moves' because of students ...

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
