Yes I recall you telling me a few years ago that when you spoke to 'Another Willie' he has this soviet accent barely understandable. I don't think there's a poster you Yes I recall you telling me a few years ago that when you spoke to 'Another Willie' he has this soviet accent barely understandable. I don't think there's a poster you haven't skyped ,is there?

Nope, I could understand him ok. But of course he had a Soviet accent, which caused him to slow his speaking speed down so that others could follow him.

A few tins of beer can have the same effect, btw! :b

However, the terrible listening ability and limited vocab of many Chinese students and their Chinese teachers would make it hard for them to understand him.

Anyway, as far as I know, he was teaching German in China, not English.

Of course, the Chinese as non-native speakers of English, many of them with poor listening and oral skills, are untrustworthy judges of what comprises acceptable oral English of an FT in class, both Chinese teachers of English and their students.

I'm not on Skype any more. Actually, before that I didn't Skype with quite a few of the regular posters.

Sadly, few posters are posting these days. I hope SB and Drags resume posting soon.

For the love of god I hope you're right and he did stay away from English learning students and concentrated on teaching German. Whether or not as a second language speaker of German he should have been teaching that language is not our business, not out concern.

Well, well, you may be good for 'Another Willie' after all, clearing up a bone of contention for him, enabling him to rise slightly in my estimations. Just one puzzle I have, wots he doing on this esl forum?
