Awkward English Lesson

Mostly True Memoirs

It was an awkward English lesson

My beginning online student told me,

in halting language,

that he had recently visited the United States.

He took a trip to San Diego.

And he took the opportunity to cross the border and visit Tijuana.

I asked him what he thought of Tijuana.

He paused for a moment, searching for the right word.

“Prostitutes.”

Oh.

But of course.

What else would be said in an awkward English lesson?

I quickly changed the subject.
