Moldavian English grammar teachers Sunday, Nov 10 2013 

Pre-intermediate student: I had been to Annenii Noi this weekend…

Teacher:…. ………..ehhhhh….[why did this kid use the past perfect?]

P.Int student…I’m sure I impressed him…with my use of past perfect

Teacher…..Who the FFFF….drilled him Past perfect?????

 Teaching English in Moldova is no easy thing.Sadly many kids come to me using the past perfect because some teacher has decided to teach it at elementary. I remember at one school here elementary students studying the future perfect….can you imagine it? Well…that’s real. Instead teach kids at pre intermediate level not to just say I like….maybe I love…I really like….I soooooh like….would be a lot more useful…don’t you think?

Now my theory on the mysterious effect that Moldovan wine has on us guys, would be my idea to relaunch Moldovan wine on the world stage after the wreckage left behind from the former goverment.
