Tales from the Eikaiwa: Teaching a lesson he won’t forget

September 27th, 2010By Category: Teaching in Japan

If you teach private English lessons in Japan, then you have would perhaps fit into two categories. Some teachers find and build great rapport with their students, creating interesting classes which keep their students coming back for more. Others, of course, have an experience akin to drawing blood from a stone.

As the Japan Subculture Research Center blog recounts, however, sometimes it is the teacher who learns from the student, especially if that student happens to work in the underworld and has connections to the American Mafia.

Head over there to read the full encounter.  It is a great read supplied by EFL teacher Jason Gray. Share your own student experiences with other teachers in the comments below.
