When your English Language lesson plan is prepared by a non-native speaker…
Today’s idioms were
“Don’t quit your day job”
“When pigs fly.”
Not only did I have to teach what these expressions mean,
I had to warn them not to say these things because they are insults.
In other words, it was a wasted class session.
These expressions are very nuanced.
Nuance is an advanced concept.
Today’s students were beginners.
I sure hope they don’t come back to class tomorrow with a black eye.
