Comic 116 – “TESL”
Errol: This was one of the things that kept Debs busy over the summer. She had to attend class all day! Ugh. Summer school would have killed me.
Debs: Who is Nikola Tesla? Apt timing on this one, Errol. Today is the first day of my practicum – I get to each real students for the first time this week!
Learn to what?
/first with the smarty-pants comment
Darn it. I blame that I spit out 10 of these in one day. 🙂
I was just gonna say … 😀
Glad to see I’m not the only troll.
Besides, if you come to Japan, maybe I can set you up with a teaching gig.
Wait wait wait, Debs… you don’t know who Nikola Tesla is?!
See? Danny understands.
This is almost as shocking and heartbreaking as finding out she hates everything Back to the Future…EVERYTHING!
Hey, you posted this on the day I started my TESL course! You guys make me feel so loved :o)
Wait, you’re doing TESL too! That’s great! 😀
BTW, if you think about it, this comic is kinda ironic.
I think people say “TESL” instead of spelling it out “T-E-S-L”
Why is it ironic? Like Alanis Morissette ironic or just correct ironic?
Because.. it’s about Teaching English as a Second Language… and I can’t use English properly. And Debs didn’t catch it. 😀
Technically, I think that was spelling that you didn’t use properly… not English per se. Though, now this splitting hairs thing is just getting weird….
