Vacuum cleaners

Tradition teachers are like the old vacuum cleaner salesmen.  They go door to door (student to student) selling their boring wares (books). They go from neighborhood to neighborhood in an old jalopy.  They are outmodes and boring.

Teachers who stress communication skills and genuine group work and especially comprehensible input in the classroom, on the other hand, reflect the speed of the computer age, but in linguistic fashion. They teach language at lightening fast rates of speed compared to the old vacuum cleaner salesmen.
