    LIMERICKS COMPOSED IN CLASS BY UPER-INTERMEDIATE STUDENTS

    First attempt: We once had a terrible chef

    Who was known to be totally deaf

    We said something

    He heard nothing

    We remember his name was Jeff.



    The student spoke fun at their classmates, who seem not to be serious!

    There was a young student from Congo

    Who never could listen for long oh!

    Hed run from the room

    To answer the phone

    And chat up his girlfriend in Congo!

    One student was just like the weather

    Making us ask ourselves whether

    He came here to study

    Or make the room crowdy:

    Was around, but here in class, never!



    In memory of a student who had to leave before the course was over:
