The Offensive Translator (Catherine Tate video)

Someone showed this to use at a UCPS Global Teacher meeting back in September.  It makes a pretty good (and humorous) case for why we want to help our kids learn about other countries and understand different cultures.  I plan on showing it in a staff meeting at some point to show the kind of stereotyping that goes on (which I’m sure we’re all aware of) and is precisely what we don’t want to teach our students to become.  Some people might be offended by the blatant stereotypes that are presented – they are pretty accurate.  I know it’s not intentionally meant to offend, however.  It truly is one of the funniest things I’ve seen while also showing a reality we need to work on while teaching students.  Prepare to laugh.
