Notes from the TEFL Graveyard

Wistful reflections, petty glories.

Location: The House of Usher, Brazil

I'm a flailing TEFL teacher who entered the profession over a decade ago to kill some time whilst I tried to find out what I really wanted to do. I like trying to write comedy (I once got to the semi-finals of a BBC Talent competition, ironically writing a sitcom based on TEFL), whilst trying to conquer genetically inherited procrastination... I am now based in Brazil, where I live with my wife and two chins.

It's official. Consider this extract I was asked to quickly skim over for mistakes:

...the Brazilian legislation doesn't establish that the manufacturing companies of nutritious goods are forced to collect and to give destination final, environmental appropriate, although this for the norm ISO 22000 is requested. Now a company qualified powder an official organ of the environment is responsible for the discard of ******** Brazil's products. Cost of u$ 142/60 boxes...

It's like a linguistic car accident.

Wanted: a job, any job, that doesn't make my brain hurt into the early hours.
