I before E except after C…

…unless your being weird.

My god how am I meant to be teaching others how to deal with English when I can barely get my head around it myself!

Well I’ve just started my TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) course and I’m struggling to dredge up the English lessons from school. I mean it’s just one of those things, you learn all about adjectives, verbs, nouns, pro-nouns and all that jazz, pass your GCSE English and then forget about them…. In day to day life have you ever had to remember which are which in ‘the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog’ ahhhhhhhhh

I’m sure as I get stuck into the course it will come back to me and all will be right as rain.

Now after all this TEFL stuff I’ll hopefully be heading off to China (still waiting to be accepted) in August for a 4.5month teaching English type thing where I’ll be earning a basic living, spending next to nothing, getting lost & confused, eating some great food, freezing my ass off in winter and I guess teaching at a school… Can’t wait! Will be awesome to be out of the country for an extended time again and China is so different it’s sure to be a culture shock!

Oh and it’s going to be a blast getting there to! Got a couple months travel planned before hand (more on that later).

Soooo…. Where did I put that Mandarin for Dummies?
