Yes, our most favourite Tefl Slug is now firmly back on the Tefl Trail, after a brief but unsuccesful detour into the B&B trade. Paul Lowe has recently advertised on tefl.com for a few gullible Tefl Twerps to join him at Lowe Mansions, a.k.a. Windsor English, in his defecatory pedagogical ponderings across the Windsor skyline.
However, it seems that Paul's still on 'the medication', as the ad features a few howlers. Can you spot them...?
English Teacher - Windsor English
Location Windsor UK, United Kingdom
Deadline Thursday 18. May 2000
Experience 1 year
English Teachers URGENTLY needed to fit in with a close-knit team of friendly teachers and students. Year-round position to the right person
Qualifications - TEFL Cert.
1 year experince minimum - Dip preferred
Needs to be local to Windsor
Compensation - £17 per hourOf course, dodgy Paul does not even know what year it is, and fails the basic literacy test by spelling 'experience' wrong! Silly boy, Paul - you only had to copy the word from the form!
And despite apparently advertising for three teachers, he claims there's only ONE permanent position available TO the right person ... rather than FOR the right person. Sadly it appears that all those copywriting skills Paul presumably acquired during his years in the advertising business have been lost.
Anyway, if you fancy availing yourself of Paul's almost generous offer of 17 smackers for each hour of classroom capers - paid (hopefully) in a brown envelope at the end of the week - here's the number to call.
Just tell him that Sandy sent you. I'm sure he'll be delighted!
