Second Conditional

Last night I handed out conversation cards to my Business English students (interestingly, not the Dirty Old Men Business English Class), they had to form the question, then they could ask anyone else in the class to answer it.

Mr. Tall: If you didn't have to wear a uniform to work, what would you wear?

Mr. Short: My panties.

Teacher: Panties are underwear for women, for men we just say 'underwear'.

Mr. Short: Yes, my panties. Panties are the top and bottom?

Teacher: No, (attempting the most modest mime possible) the bra is on top, the panties are on the bottom.

Mr. Short: Oh okay... bra and panties.

Teacher: The whole sentence please?

Mr. Short: If I didn't have to wear a uniform to work, I would wear my bra and panties all day.

Teacher: Good.

TAG: Code Mango

I look forward to coverage of the protracted litigation after he is humiliated at the big international business meeting and seeks punitive damages from you.

M5K - they don't really do protracted litigation here in Thailand... for which I'm really thankful!

Libby - and this is why I teach adults!
