When is a Teacher not a Teacher?

A recent Letter to the Editor published in the Korea Times illustrates the view that native English speaking teachers are "adulated" by many students. Entitled "Why Western Teachers Are Revered Here", the letter gives examples that will be familiar to many of us here in Japan. One extreme case was of a "teacher" who didn't know the diference between a verb and a noun.
