Nice (short) story on the English classes members of the Kernels are taking during the season.

Nice story.  I don't remember you posting this one before  but you have posted a similar story about the language classes (remember the teacher because of the host family tie.)

 

Also saw a story about the classes in Ft. Myers at the new academy.

 

Does this mean that they are continuing them up the line in AA and AAA as well?

That's a good question. It sounded like that might be the case in the channel 2 article, but I haven't heard whether they have extended to AA-AAA.

I have experience teaching English as a foreign language. Maybe I should propose the Twins hire me as roving language instructor.:)
