my-esl-student:

The dog was an alpinist which conquered Mt. Everest for the first time in history.  He got wealth and fame as the price for paying for loosing forefeet because of frostbite.  He is thinking about climbing the mountain again.  His challenges will never end.

i just discovered my-esl-student and i think it’s a really great, creative way of teaching and also has some pretty gorgeous results. here’s a description of the project:

I am an ESL (English as a Second Language) tutor  over Skype. I do a visual exercise with one of my students, “A,” where I  show her a picture, then she writes two to four sentences about it. My  friends love her sentences and urged me to start a Tumblr, so here it  is.

this is a million kinds of amazing.

how i spent my birthday so far: delicious breakfast with my parents and my partner, playing with my sister’s big fluffy cat, got dressed up nice, took photobooth pictures in my favourite photobooth of all time, purchased some martini glasses for my mom so we can make fancy drinks tonight, and met some nice ponies who i almost mistook for enormous dogs from afar.
also! my parents let me and my partner (of 3+ years!!! and we’ve been living in sin for over a year now!) sleep in the same room for the first time ever! i am glad i can be treated as an adult now that i’m, yaknow, TWENTY-FIVE. oh catholicism…
