For those of you following the saga, New Man is officially out as of today. His teacher put up with him for 4 weeks. She talked to him about his behavior as did I and our department head to no avail. It stinks because he's a bright boy and he wants to learn English. I think if he could behave appropriately in a classroom, he would. But it just doesn't seem possible and I don't know how to help him with that.
On a lighter note, on e of my Chinese students walked in with a great T-shirt tonight which said "Pank Rock Lundon in the UK". I want that shirt.
