Teaching is great right now, really very great.

Today, in class, I somehow managed to slap myself in one of my testicles midway through an explanation of a worksheet. All student eyes upon me I stolidly took the diabolical pain, and subsequent stomach cramps, on the chin. 'Get them looking at the worksheet' I thought, 'and I can have a leisurely few moments to clutch my stomach and grimace'.

And I realised that choosing to use the name 'Susan' in an aural exercise spells folly for Japanese students. Answers ranged from 'Mr Su' to 'Miss Su' as well as the accurate 'Susan-san'.

It's all good.
