eww I hate metal bottles too!

Thanks Sakura for looking at my thread.. I'll read more up on lymphocystis after I call this guy from the dollar store. I prepared a phone speech even though my interview is in an hour and now I'll probably be late. *sigh* life.

I figured out how to upload my video! So I'll post it after my call, providing I don't have to go in for the interview. I'm not psyched for it, and I told him yesterday..

Yes, Oliver is walked on a harness. It's not a safety latch one because I never want to lose him from it, and since I'm with him he should never get stuck in a tree! lol A metal cage banging behind anybody would be terrifying! lol 2 summers ago at the cafe I worked at someone tied their 2 shepherd pups to the metal tables outside and one got spooked by a truck and ran and then the table scared him so he kept running. Fortunately someone waiting at the lights stopped him before he could run into the road. I told the people to bring their dogs in the cafe and I gave them roast beef slices.

As a non-native English speaker, I felt the compulsion to address this as it seems kind of callous. Jenn was referring to the professor's accent, not his/her ability to speak English fluently. You may speak English fluently, yet have a thick accent. An accent does not impede you from speaking a language fluently. I'd like to see you, as a native English speaker, try to speak Spanish, for example, to a native Spanish speaker and do so fluently, without an accent.

I think there might have been a mess up when I responded to Jenn. I thought the prof was not speaking fluently, I didn;t know it was an accent. I know there's a difference between accent and fluency, however, I stand by what I said. I would not expect to be well understood if I taught a non-language course in Spanish at a Spanish school.. I took a Russian class and trust me, I know my non-english speaking is terrible! I can make fun of myself for it though, and I would never even apply for a teaching position in which I would be teaching in another language. I wish to go to Asia to teach ESL and there I am sure I will come to terms with the difficulty in teaching.

I'm sorry if I offended you. It is never my intention to come off as crass or ignorant. And I think I had in mind a particular type of teacher, for instance, one at my university who is from China and teaches statistics but cannot convey with his language skills what he means to English students. In fact, 80% of his classes usually fail or drop out and if they DO pass it's because they paid the special Stats tutor, who profits off the university's decision to give this guy tenure. Not even sure he did ESL before the job. Nothing against him, he's a genious and knows stats well but he shouldn't be teaching it in Atlantic Canada!

Totally understandable. I had a Hungarian Calculus professor in uni, who would switch between Spanish, English and Hungarian if he didn't know how to say a word.
