I've been working as an English teacher in Warsaw for a couple of years now. I suppose I was starting to get a bit tired of it. I'd learned quite a lot of Polish, but hadn't managed to get a girlfriend (more about that later) and was thinking of moving on. Then, one April morning, I was summoned into the office of my director of studies. I was to have a new, one-to-one, student. Apparently she was too busy to come into our school so I'd have to give lessons in her flat. At 3 o'clock. On a Friday afternoon. Great, I thought. Less time in the pub on a Friday afternoon. Bloody great. My boss handed over the file detailing her initial English test and background. I looked at the first page, wondering what kind of dull middle-aged careerist I had been landed with. Instead, I received a surprise: Name: Sonnet, Ewa Age: 24 Occupation: Model Hmmm.... could be interesting.
