Postbox letter from David Fahey

Only non-smokers need apply

Are we witnessing the start of a new trend?

Whites or native speakers?

Postbox letter from Terri

I am fluent in both French and English. My students were told I was French but I always told them I was African - born and raised in France. If you dont like my teaching methodologies, they can bring in another teacher but i am not gonna lie about anything.
