Looking back one of the funniest things I ever saw was a Grade 4 Science test. It was set by a teacher who, let us say, was rather challenged in the English language department. Basically the teacher was a NNES, I hasten to add not Filipino, and for their good fortune was contracted at the top rate. From previous experience I was expecting to invigilate an exam in which the test questions would be inter alia irrelevant, non-academic and made up of incorrectly structured questions. As I read the paper I was pleasantly surprised because the expected catalogue of horrors was not present. In particular I was impressed by one question which contained scans of the content labels of four standard food products with instructions for students to write notes on which foods had the healthiest contents. Nice question I thought. As I scanned I came to label number three. Oh dear, little problem - it was in French! Ah the joys of teaching in Thailand!
