14 – MOT Listeners’ Tales from the classroom
In this end-of-year episode, we get the funnier side of teaching English with stories from listeners and future interviewees. Special thanks to Grace, Thomas, Matthew, Jon, Fergal, James, Mierkamil, Oksana, Jacob, Roger, Gordon, and Jake.
We cover accidental phallic drawings, mistranslations, unintended puns, uncontrollable sweating…
