Not a mullah

I'm getting slightly concerned about the level of laughter in my old men's class. Several of them are over seventy five and I'm worried that someone could have a heart attack.

Last week we were practicing conversations about the weather and one student from Morocco kept everyone laughing by disagreeing with others and insisting it was warm and pleasant.

My oldest student goes into quiet laughing fits. Yesterday Mogfa visited the class and I had them introduce themselves. The 83 year old said 'I am from Iran.... but I am not a mullah', gesturing to imaginary headgear and then bursting into wheezy laughter. I held my breath.

Haha that's hilarious... first alleged terrorists now oldies laughing themselves to the grave! Who said adult education was dull?

Some time I'll have to play you my tape of the old men's class doing speaking activities :)
