(We’re in fifth grade learning about government. Our teacher is a woman.)

Knowing Your Stations In Life

| Chiba, Japan | Language & Words, Popular

(I am teaching English as a second language to a group of very clever elementary school kids. I am teaching them about how to tell directions, and we’re going over landmarks one might use. I’m showing them flash cards.)

Me: “What’s this?” *holding up a picture of a police station*

Students: “Police!”

Me: “Good! Good! Close! It’s a Police Station. Police Station. Now… what’s this?” *holding up a picture of a fire station*

Students: “Fire… Fire… Fire station?”

Me: “Oh, very good! Yes! Fire station! Next!” *holding up a picture of a train station*

Students: “Train station!”

Me: “Excellent! And next?” *holding up a picture of a hospital*

Students: *excitedly* “Doctor station!”
