Ethical ways and open-mindedness

One believes in open-mindedness. Teachers are open-minded people.

Because of  this attitude one teacher never says no to a proposal from any company or group.

On this occasion, a group asks for an appointment to make a presentation of supplementary material for the English classes. One agrees  to have a meeting with them. The company explains the project, the teacher pays attention.

To sum up, there are positive aspects and negative ones. The negative aspects turn out to be heavy. The ugly faces of the matter are money and time. Moreover the project wouldn´t be affordable due to the fact that some elements from the own syllabus had to be deleted to accommodate the activity.

Despite these negative points, the teacher offers himself to pass information on to students on condition that the company sends an email with a FAQ issue and propaganda on the project. One teacher knows well that there are lots of ways to learning and practice and he doesn´t like the idea of closing doors to new activities.

Finally, the company doesn´t send any information via email and therefore the teacher is not able to provide his students with some optional ways to learn and practise the English language.
