After the break, I asked my students, "Do you know how long freshmen military training lasts in America?" The guessing began.
"Half a year"
(and so on)
No, no, no, no.
"Aha! I've tricked you!" I said smugly. "Is there freshmen military training in America?"
A ripple of understanding passed through the room.
"No!" they yelled in unison.
Laughter and astonishment all around.
