Abstract

I do not know for sure, but it may be instructive for non-native teachers of English to reflect on their own journeys as learners of English. This may also be of some interest to theorists of language learning. I became a teacher of English by default rather than by design. To say this is just to point out the role of chance in life, and maybe, to also hint at the devious ways in which the process of language learning itself may operate.
