Here’s 1 4 U 2 2

| Aichi, Japan | Learning | March 6, 2014

(I am an ESL teacher. I try to keep a constant dialogue going with my students, so they get used to hearing and responding in English and so the language is less intimidating. This happens after I have handed out worksheets for students to complete in pairs.)

Me: “There, now. Are we ready? Does every pair have a copy of the worksheet?”

Student: *raising his hand, nervously* “Teacher, no. We didn’t get the worksheet!”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry. Here’s one for you two, too.”

Student: *looks at me with confusion, and a little bit of fear* “One, four…?”

Me: “Yes, one for—oh!” *realizing what I’ve said* “I mean, here’s a worksheet for both of you, as well!”
