Afternoon Video: Student Pretends To Be ELL All Semester

I've got mixed feelings about this video because it focuses on trying to be funny rather than highlighting the ways that students (and teachers) treat kids who are just learning English as dumb or slow.  [Speaking of trying to be funny -- that post yesterday about schools letting teachers carry guns was meant to be satirical.]

I dont really understand why others treat poeple who have an accent like they dont understand anything. Just because people don't speak english well doesn't mean that they cant understand just like we do or better. It's just funny how he pranked everyone.
