Aqui estoy ... con individual

Individual in this context means placemat, not individual, by the way.

With the lunch of a friend today came this:

Now I agree that plagarism is bad, but isn't this usually a topic covered in class, not on a placemat? Did it really require a superhero to "save the world from a lack of ethics" and a rat with a "horde of plagarism thugs"?

The more useful side of the placemat:

We spent lunch questioning a Peruvian friend about a variety of things, math vocabulary in particular. You'd think math would be the easiest thing to help with homework at Deporte y Vida because it's objective, but no. It's actually among the harder things because we don't know the vocabulary or the slightly different symbols they use. But now I will be able to discuss types of triangles and their parts as well as the various mathematical operations and the Pythagorean theorem. Bring it on, strange math worksheets.

We reciprocated by explaining some English as well, words that sound and charge; live, live, and life, etc...

Hasta la proxima!
