I'm a both English teacher and journalist. And currently I'm looking for a partner (native English speaker)to establish a language center for in-company and in-class trainings. Any serious candidates can contact me at aecjakarta@yahoo.com

I dont think you want to meet the other members who either are, or have been English Teachers that visit this site.

This should be an interesting thread....

I aint a English teacher, but here's a tip: correct grammar is "I'm both a ...." not "I'm a both ...".

Thanks.

Ooops...thanks for the correction... my mind had to be wandering somewhere when I unconsciously overtyped it.

Thanks for the correction, but isn't that an English teacher?

Is "aint" a word?

I had a feeling this would happen.

. . . for in-company and in-class trainings.

Sorry about this, mate, but you must be Australian cool Because friends don't let friends drink & type, I thought I'd best mention that "training" is a non-count noun. Singular or plural, it's "training".

Despite the fact that training is considered uncountable noun in grammar, its use should not be rigid. If we can use plural 'insights', why can't we use 'trainings.'

Below is a piece I've taken from BBC news:
In partnership with ..., the ICTJ is launching a series of trainings for African journalists as part of its two-year..

Below is a piece I've taken from Wayne's World:

Quote:
Wayne Campbell: So, do you come to Milwaukee often?

Alice Cooper: Well, I'm a regular visitor here, but Milwaukee has certainly had its share of visitors. The French missionaries and explorers began visiting here in the late 16th century.

Pete: Hey, isn't "Milwaukee" an Indian name?

Alice: Yes, Pete, it is. In fact , it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land."

Wayne: I was not aware of that.

Alice: Actually, what I find most interesting about Milwaukee is that it is the only major American city to elect three socialist mayors.

Wayne: Does this guy know how to party, or what?

wow .. those winter nights must fly by in the world of teaching. Now all you guys get out your calculators to work out exactly how much everyones share of the bill works out to. Then piss off the waiter / bar staff while you spend half an hour moaning that you have paid for more than you drank.

Anyway ... there are a few talented people on this site. Why not e-mail him to see what he has to offer in terms of building a good business here. It might lead somewhere good. This points scoring is not a good way to welcome wally.

By the way wally .. where are you? Are you hiding behind the elephant in the back right hand corner?

I had the lasagne too, and one Bintang only. I'm NOT paying for Piss Salon's Egg Nog

'Training program' is a count noun. Don't be adding no 's' to 'training' boy.

Similarly, you wouldn't say that he went to several football trainings. You would say you went to several training sessions.

I think a teacher on a million a month inclusive of beer and dialysis might not reach your level of expectation on the investment front.

Actually I could be interested Wally - get in touch, though I want nothing to do with those African journalists.

i have many indian clients. in the main, they aren't that much different to most of my other clients, however there does seem to be a much bigger percentage of hard-core dishonest rip-off merchants at the bottom end of the scale.

but then, compared to chinese indonesians, i would prefer to take my risks with indians.
