This video is worthy of post of its own for a number of reasons:
- It’s very well done and of a reasonable length — long enough to give you a rounded view of his day, short enough that you don’t fall asleep. Okay…I like the Daniel Powter song too.
- Actually seeing something is far better than just reading about it (someone may have come up with a clever saying about this…something about 1000 words?)
- You see some cool things — students with a sense of humor, friends, a cool bus driver — and some realistic not-so-cool things — large classes, somewhat difficult to understand students (though that could be because of the background music) and the school bathroom. Yikes.
- You see his flat. And the setup is remarkably similar to mine! Except instead of a nice desk, I have five armoires. Seriously though, it’s always interesting to see where other people live, but very valuable to get a glimpse of where you might be living if you teach overseas.
