HILARIOUS ESL Classroom Moment No. 1: A chicken dinner

As teachers (particularly ESL teachers), we are always teaching pretty much the same content for each level of English, and the things that keep ups motivated and interested, fall into two categories, the new techniques and theories of education and the fact that every month or semester we get a different ‘fresh’ batch of bright eyed and bushy tailed students.

It is the latter that I find the most entertaining and so have put together a series of posts that cover a few of these kinds of moments.

Whenever I get Elementary 1 or 2 levels, I find that there are a number of errors the students make, one of the most common is this sentence:

“I cook my dinner in the chicken”

From this point I find myself making gestures as to how and where exactly are you going to cook the food inside the chicken, inside its neck? Inside its breast? Inside its backside?

Tell me some more of your own!
