you could cut a new poster some slack for not realizing he would offend all of you (presumably) older English enthusiasts?

Here here. Exactly what I think.
Well people I am young and fun and thats what I can offer the students

PS . Students like to learn the English slang .... so stick that in your pipe and smoke it

Young immigrants to England might like to learn English slang.

But the businesspeople most newbie teachers work with from private language schools on the continent aren't going to be very interested.

Well i have friends that teach teenagers in Spain and France and they like to learn it. So as you can see there are two sides to every coin. I am sure the business men like the consecrative approach but younger students like fun lessons with a more liberal appeal. ! Razz

Perhaps the "consecrative" businessmen will get along nicely with the "italain" men.

If anyone is wondering what this character's lessons will be like I think this might furnish a clue....

I agree with Tainan completley. A lack of proper punctuation and capital letters shows a total lack of respect to us and to the English language.

You need a capital letter in you, a comma in thats, a full stop after students and after P in P.S. and of course a full stop after it. What the hell does BRAP mean ????

Also if you are American (using a z in realising) did you know you can't work in Italy anyway without a European passport ??? See forum on Americans in Europe. How can anyone not know what 'down-at-heel anglephones' mean ? How thick is that ? I am gobsmacked ! Also you do not use a exclamtion mark after a fullstop. Just a ! will do !

And NOT currently employed as a language teacher...and likely to remain in that state.

Young, fun, and liberal aren't exactly the key words any employer is looking for - outside of possible summer camp work (and even there, they want candidates who can spell and who won't be so liberal that they'll get in/get students in trouble).

It's entirely possible to both have a personality and to be able and willing to use standard English on an English teaching forum, and in the classroom. Twisted Evil
