Life As A Prison Educator – My Eighteen Months in Chinatown!

(78 customer reviews)

£0.99

JD Morgan takes ‘a trip down memory lane’, as he recalls passing an unforgettable and highly-amusing eighteen months in the unexpected company of five Chinese students who suddenly arrived in his prison classroom. JD’s objective was to guide them through the most basic elements of learning ‘survival’ English and then build upon this with formal qualifications. However, the results were far different from those anticipated, as it turned out that JD actually learned as much about life as a Chinese triad from them, as they did English from him! (4,300 words)

Description

“But teacher, you say that if we work hard, and no crime, then maybe we get photo outside top ‘otel in Shanghai? Well, Mr. Chang, he big criminal and he live in that ‘otel!” This was the reply I received from a very polite, hard-working young triad, Mr Yew, who was responding to my explanation that if, like me, my newly arrived Chinese students were to work diligently for the best part of sixteen hours a day for at least ten years, also ensuring they paid all taxes – as well as other bills – then, with the relatively little money they could then save, they, too, could enjoy the privilege of standing outside the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Shanghai to have their photo taken!  And while Mr Yew was making his heartfelt and passionate plea to the other students that ‘crime really does pay’, we were all sat inside an airless, stuffy classroom inside a high security prison where my remaining cluster of four Chinese triads were keeping extremely quiet and politely respectful, whilst also tacitly nodding in acquiescent agreement with every word that Mr Yew was saying!

    This prison tale is priceless. It had me chuckling at the irony.
    Does crime pay? Read it and draw your own conclusions.

    Right now it appears like WordPress is the best blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

    truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question in which
    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas
    out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Appreciate it!
