some of you may or may not know, but I teach languages to people all around theworld.  Some are online, some are face to face.  Today, I taught a French kid in Singapore.  I decided to try to sneak chess into the lesson.  We were talking about prepositions of space.  What better way to talk about positions than by using a chessboard?  Surprisingly, this kid knew how to work around a board.  He's 10.  At the end of the lesson, he says, "Veggie, I wanna show you something".  Kid had made his own chess set out of mosaics and wood and interesting pieces.  It looked really awesome and worth hundreds of dollars.  I was totally impressed.
