Amanda has posted Catherine Tate’s sketch on an unlikely interpreter on her blog and I thought I’d post this week’s language-themed gem from her weekly show. Watching it reminded me of the Laurens I met after I qualified as an English teacher. They played a rather important part in my decision to try and become a freelance translator and interpreter.

Incidentally, "bovvered" has been named word of the year 2006 by the OED.
