Their Names Are Loco

, | Learning | October 8, 2016

(I teach English as a second language to international students.)

Me: “Good afternoon, class. Welcome to Level Five Conversation. Let’s start by going around and introducing ourselves.”

Student #1: “I’m from Japan, and my name is Shoko.”

Student #2: “I’m also from Japan, and my name is Hiroko.”

Student #3: “I’m from Japan, too! My name is Kyoko.”

Student #4: “I’m from Mexico, and my name is Socorro. But no one ever calls me that – you can call me Coco.”

(I probably still could have managed okay, but Shoko and Hiroko were best friends and always sat together, so I never did learn to tell them apart…)
