I had three students and an interpreter in my English class.
One of the students was really struggling to understand.
Usually the interpreter will jump right in to help.
This interpreter did nothing.
I asked her to please help the student.
She said, in perfect English, that she couldn’t help him.
Because she didn’t understand.
The students said something to each other,
and they all laughed.
I don’t need an interpreter to know that they said, “slacker.”
