While traveling abroad, and teaching, and working, and just existing in a drastically different environment and culture, I occasionally run into little problems where I have no idea what is going on.
This type of problem occurs when ordering food, but it is seldom important, as the food is usually delicious.
This type of problem occurs when using local transit, but is usually remediable by an extra trip or two on a bus.
And, this type of problem occurs when teaching. Sometimes it is a little thing, like not knowing what kids mean by a “short call” (using the bathroom, but very quickly). Sometimes it is a big thing (like kids not knowing I mean by a “quiz” and not telling me until they complain about the poor grades).
And sometimes, this type of problem is just bamboozling.
I do not know how to do step 4….
