Assunto:  worse than not studying English
 
Mensagem:  On Friday I met a taxi driver who has been studying English for four months.  He has a surprisingly good command of the language.  About a week ago the school his old teacher left and a new teacher came to his classroom.  She is Norwegian and nobody can understand her.  (She acknowledges she has a thick accent.)  She also has a terrible attitude about teaching in general.  She is killing this man's motivation to learn.

True, Teacher, there are many accents in English.  I can't imagine an accent so heavy that "lovely" would be pronounced like that.  Is he a native speaker?  Or is he a non-native who took the same course he is teaching?   That would explain a lot.  LOL  The negative transference strongly suggest a native speaker of Portuguese.
