Oh NO! This is JUST the sort of thing that gives Tefl a bad name...

Go take a look at this guy. The appalling glasses, the naff hairstyle, the weird expressions and gestures, ... and such an extreme lack of dress-sense! Aaaargh!!

Do you sincerely want to be part of an 'industry' that promotes itself like this? Words fail me ... only my tears stop me from crying out "ENOUGH!!"

Fuggin' 'bird-brain' indeed!!

One of my students actually posted this on our class blog, which is the first time I came across it. They all loved it....should I adapt my style?

They got him from the Windsor List - where the modesty of the charge compares favourably with the more commercial agencies!

Come to think of it, there is quite a resemblance there between our geeky Tefler and Paul Lowe! Could he possible be --- a relative? Oh my God, perish the thought...!!

By the way, each of us has their own teaching way. This guy apparently practices the clown style :-)

'Nothing happens slowly...'Are you sure...is anybody sure that Paul Lowe didn't compile his Windsor List from info on the 'Noncewatch'website? If that character depicted was let anywhere near me nieces and nephews in Indonesia,I would be rather annoyed...Come to think of it,EF,who had a deal with Windsor, recruiting alumni from its courses,employed a paedophile in one of its client schools in Indonesia...Paul?..Paul?Can you throw any further light on this,you smelly little fuck-bucket?
