How should we teach? How are languages learned?
Any answer will soon look daft.
Like everything else, knowledge rots.
You think you’ve found the answer?
How? There was never any valid question to be answered.
Save your blushes.
The wise teacher understands there is only one way
and follows it.
What they do, they do well.
Whenever they try to do anything else,
their stomachs churn and their hearts beat fast.
When the way they teach
is the way they are,
their lessons are better than ever.
Don’t trust any -ology
and no -ologist will ever trust you.
