As I said - what are you going to do when native teachers are seen as nothing special?
swwwwwwwiiiiiiing and a miss!
if anything, you just proved to the forum how essential a native can be, especially regarding articles.
there is absolutely nothing wrong with an article in that instance. it can be said both ways, each having a slightly different meaning.
leave articles to the native speakers, pappy.
you love to boast how I lack credentials, well, people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. you clearly lack the credentials to comment on article usage in English.
As an aside - is it just anecdotal evidence, or are English teaching salaries actually going down?
can't speak for anyone else, but I've been making money hand over fist. in fact, i'll be in your neck of the woods next month, 2 days of teaching, 1300PLN, hotel, transportation and meals paid.
it's like shooting fish in a barrel with you, pappy.
A 25 year old kid with less than 18 months experience living in Poland, doesn't speak Polish and is not a native speaker of English.......oh......and who doesn't even pay his own rent.....
somehow i think you lack the credentials, me boy.
oh, and don't forget to visit lindenia ;)
