a possible conversation starter
Today’s ESL conversation class was a bit dithery and under-prepared. Two new students, from Korea, but the three elderly Chinese people took the day off. A pity, they’re real live wires. So I ended up with a much younger group, four Koreans and a Japanese. Did some brief exercises around household items, moving from room to room, then moved outside, into the garden. Talked about herbs and vegies, somehow got onto native animals, cane toads, redback spiders, and of course cooking. Chatted about a few places of interest in SA and Oz generally, sounded quite the traveller – if they only knew. Anyway, next week, I’ll actually find them something to read – something exotic like the Tasmanian tiger, I’m thinking.
