CANDID CONVERSATIONS WITH MY YOUNG ESL STUDENTS  




After teaching my 10-year-old student the meaning of the word priority, I asked him, "So, what are your top five priorities?


Little Boy:   Soccer, baseball, food, computer games, cellphone games...


Me:             How about your homework??!!


Little Boy:  That's Number 2, 421...




Me:              How was your soccer match?


Little Boy:    We lost...


Me:               Why? What went wrong?


Little Boy:     I was the goalkeeper.




Me:                 In life, balance is very important.


Little Boy:      Yes. I hope our school will have balance someday.


Me:                 Balance in what?


Little Boy:      Like... one hour class, one hour break time.
