Your Funny EFL / ESL Teaching Stories – an open call

Posted on Updated on

MOT 7 - sad teacher

I’m making a Christmas episode of the podcast and I need your help. Yes, YOU. The person reading this right now. Don’t look around, I’m talking to you~!

As serious, devoted education professionals, we all love hearing about things going wrong or weird in a lesson, so the end-of-year episode is going to be a collection of funny stories from the classroom. I’ve already recorded a few with the recent interviewees. If you’d like to contribute, I’d love to have your story.

They don’t have to be long at all. One I have already is just a teacher leaning against the classroom door and falling straight through it! Short n sweet. But longer ones are good too. If you have more than one that’s even better.
So, any mishaps, odd co-workers, weird or funny experiences, just record yourself telling the story (just on your phone is good enough!) and send it to mastersoftesol@gmail.com
If you want to be anonymous, that’s fine, otherwise you a can give your name at the start. As it’s the end-of-year show, the sooner I get them the better, so don’t delay if a story comes to mind
Cheers

Recording Assignment – What’s the strangest question a student has asked you?

Posted on Updated on

What weird, unexpected questions have students asked you? How did you answer? I’d love to hear them and use them on the show.

A recording would be amazing, but shy folks can just message you weird question and answer to @MOTcast

Recording Assignment #1 – The Unexpected Backfire

Posted on Updated on

If you’d like to contribute to the show, here’s your chance.

I’m looking to hear your experiences in the classroom where you tried something with the best intentions… But it backfired on you. Perhaps you were over-ambitious, or your super clear instructions were somehow misinterpreted with hilarious consequences. We’ve all been there. It’s kinda parta the job, so I’d love to hear what’s happened to you. Here’s my example:
