At the start of each lesson, I have to ask, why are you learning English?
The predictable answers are: For my work, to travel, for my education. But sometimes, someone throws in something unexpected… For a secret project my partner and I are working on…
Ohh.. I say, but I can’t really ask more.
I pondered it for a while after the lesson. Were they just being silly, deliberately mysterious, a in joke I did not get, or maybe they were training to be spies or something !?
I asked another teacher for their opinion.
“Role play, has to be” was there straight answer. “I bet one of them gets really turned on when speaking English”
Well I suppose that answers it.
