My Students Are Awesome

Today I had two new students.

1) An architect who was working on a project for a university in Tripoli, until NATO invaded Libya and they evacuated everybody. So now he’s back in Spain, unemployed, and trying to avoid going to Azerbaijan, where his company wants to send him now.

2) An MBA student from Inner Mongolia. Inner fucking Mongolia! That’s not even Mongolia, it’s a region of China. Who even knew? 

I love having such diverse people in my classes. I am, truly, the king of teachers. All other teachers are just imitations.

Damn it feels good to be an ESL gangsta.


How did I end up in Spain? Why am I still here almost 20 years later? Excellent questions. With no good answer... Anyway, at some point I became a blogger, bestselling author and contributor to Lonely Planet. So there's that. Drop me a line, I'm happy to hear from you.
