English Trainer Chronicles: Happy April Fools' Day!

I learned, from factmonster.com, that April Fool's day is April Fish Day in France. A learner told me that children put pictures of fish on the backs of people as a prank, so I spent all day telling my French learners to watch out for fish! :-)

One of my learners told me of her own experience as a child.

Learner: "When I was a young girl, my friend put a fish in my butt."
Me: ...
Learner: "Oh no, no! My back! Not my butt!"

When she walked away to print our lesson for the day, I could still hear her laughing.

P.S.

I tried to rickroll one of my students. But he hasn't replied. :P
