Topic 17.   3 March 2017 : Teach me something!

The very best way to learn something is to teach it. (Teaching forces you to organize and remember your ideas)

1. Example: I am a diplomat (or spy!) coming to your country. Teach me how to blend in with the local people without being noticed.

2. What is the best way for me to dress so I look like a local person?

3. What should I avoid talking about so I don’t upset local people?

4. What kind of people should I make friends with to help me quickly be accepted by many local people?

5. How much should I tell local people about the country where I come from? Will they be interested?

6. What is something I might offer to teach local people which they might find useful?

7. When I have to deal with officials in your country, how should I behave? What is the best way to get what I want from officials?

8. If my children go to school in your country, what will they have to do to be accepted by the teachers and other children?

9. What kind of TV, sports and other things will the people in your country like talking about?

10. If I am looking for a house to rent in your country, what questions should I ask the owner or agent? What information will they want from me?
