Anecdote: Dictatorial teaching

Type: Anecdote

Gabrielle Klingelhofer tells us her amusing board marker story.

This happened a few years ago when I was teaching German to a group of adults. I had just introduced the imperative and now I was practising this grammar point, telling them to stand up, sit down, etc.

All of a sudden the entire class burst out laughing. It turned out that I had smeared my upper lip with a black coloured whiteboard marker, and it looked like the same kind of moustache Hitler had. I told them this was part of my lesson plan… then I doubled over.
