If I could turn back time…

I remember when I was in school to learn to teach English, the grammar part was baffling. I didn’t remember anything from school.

Of course I remembered past, present and future tense. Nouns, pronouns, adjectives and adverbs. The basics I knew.

It was when we got to learning the conditionals that my head started to spin. And there 4 different kinds? That’s when I learned that music could help me learn.

After I graduated and started my one on one lessons, I was asked by one of my younger students to help him understand a song. And that made me realize what an ingenious way to teach the older students grammar!

So as I was trying to find something to watch, I heard the song If I could turn back time by Cher, it reminded me of those lessons and made me want to literally turn back time to when I was in Prague teaching English.

Such a lovely memory to end my evening – just to be clear, the lessons were lovely – relearning grammar wasn’t! Haha

Have a lovely day or evening wherever you are.
