This is a discussion about if teaching "May I go to the toilet ?" is appropriated or not in some countries . Below is the reply of a native teacher . I'd like your help because I didn't catch the expression "please no swimming",
BTW, what is your opinion about this ( toilet / bathroom ) question ?
"I wouldn ´t wash my hands in a toilet. It sounds gross. Here in Thailand everyone is taught, "may I go to the toilet." I just say, "please no swimming." It is just an American and British thing that irked me when I first started teaching English here in Thailand. No problem, I can live with it. Just remind who you are teaching that Americans use, restroom/bathroom.
It is funny that I never heard the word toilet used when I visited the UK so many times before.'
