Wait, I take it back. At least the sand has character.
It’s pretty much the worst thing to be paired with someone who seems absolutely disinterested in learning. I mean, I don’t particularly like being partnered up with someone I don’t know, but if it makes me speak better, okay. The least you can do is make conversation. This guy basically made me want to shoot myself in the face.
This is not the most annoying person in the class though, oh no. The most annoying guy is this teenage dude who insists on pronouncing about 1/2 second LATER than everyone else in the class, and pronounces all the words WRONG. DEAD WRONG. He also has one of those voices that carries. I’ve decided to give him one hard karate chop to the neck. That ought to keep him from talking.
On a similar note, I was looking for a “learn Japanese” clip on youtube, and instead I found this gem of a video on how to teach Japanese people English (yes, it is safe for work):
I’m not sure how aerobics helps teach Japanese women being mugged to speak English, but I’m not sure I DISlike it…
