How to teach CELTA – a koan
The start of the CELTA training class. The trainer gives the students the koan, “So, how do you teach?”
The students assume that this is a rhetorical question.
So much to learn at the start, in the middle and at the end.
HOW. DO. YOU. TEACH?
So many people with so many questions. Write a book, for chrissakes. Oh. You have? How do you write? Is it even writing when you bang it out on a keyboard? You know, Socrates was not entirely off the mark when he gave the mike to Thamus. Don’t know what I’m on about? GOOGLE IT AND READ THE BOOK. Oh.
The best answer is always mind your own business.
THIS BE THE VERSE
Because I’m easy come, easy go
Little high, little low
Any way the wind blows, doesn’t really matter to me,
