I Want Your Coke

Teachers who agree to be filmed know they'll have their pronunciation errors, ticks, mannerisms and choice of outfit mocked for decades to come, so let s/he who is without sin guffaw first, OK?

Right. Apart from the obvious pronunciation issue - darling, check out and practise the pron of words you know you'll be using frequently, OK? - there are other things you ought to be addressing. First, are you teaching morons? Why else would you need to repeat Cock / Kooollllaaa over and over? Why not just bring in a bottle of Coke to show them, love? They'd soon cotton on. And we could do with a more natural-sounding exponent for requesting a Coke, if you are teaching English to Koreans. I'm not quite sure if that is the case, or whether it's Korean for English speakers. I now suspect the latter, but wouldn't put money on it. Either way, get a picture of someone in a bar, use your coke bottle and a bit of mime, and then you won't need to keep hammering the bloody translation... Oh, for Christ's sake, sit down and let me do it.

It's not actually "cock", luv.....and cock may well be cooler, depending on your proclivities. I certainly think cock is cooler.

Okay - now I'm hysterical. This is the WORST lesson evva. What is the price of cock?

Do NOT stop blogging, Steve - it saves me time after time....

Just as a quick Pee Ess, I think the bloke in the pic on your blog banner has just had this lesson.

now that we are on the subject of 'kok'. the road coade in greece is known as the K.O.K (kodikas odikis kikloforias), and there is a sweet specialty called the kok, which, believe it or not, comes in two sizes (small and large) http://www.organicallycooked.com/2009/05/zaharoplasteio.html
