I have arrived in England!
And the news reports were correct.
Lots of delays, unfortunately.
We were two hours late leaving the U.S.
I missed my connecting flight in Dublin.
But there was another flight leaving soon to London.
And now I’m here, as we say in English, safe and sound.
If you’re new to Vitamin V, I’m a travelling teacher.
One month here, another month somewhere else.
So along with lessons and motivation, you also get to travel the world with me.
THE STORY OF DAN AND KATY
But before I begin telling you about England and the language here…
Let me tell you why I’m here and introduce you to my hosts.
I’m here to visit some friends.
Their names are Dan and Katy.
I met them in the summer of 2004.
We were all in the same teacher-training course in Prague.
Dan’s plan was to move to Vietnam after the course to teach English there (he liked Vietnamese food and women).
Katy is from England.
And Katy’s plan was to move to France after the course to teach English there. (she liked the French language and men)
But then Dan met Katy, and, well, Dan never went to Vietnam, nor did Katy go to France.
Take a look at this picture and see if you can figure it out.
“Hiya” is what everyone said at the airport in Dublin.
But I don’t think the English say it…
