Students at Shizuoka Gakuen High School in Japan have been subjected to a frighteningly productive English lesson on Halloween.
“Where’s the fun and games? Why am I learning grammar dressed as a blood-sucking vampire?” thought 16-year-old student Manako Tachibana.
“There’s clearly something not right with this gaijin.”
Brian Harbinger Sensei introduced the students to “compound sentences” for the first time, which “contain at least two independent clauses”.
“I tell you what, there’s no way I thought I would hear the words ‘dependent adverb clause’ on Halloween,” Tachibana said to her friend.
“I thought we’d definitely be seeing some sort of crossword puzzle today.”
