Humanising Language Teaching
….. I can also write you some words that I read on a poster in the nurses' school in St Malo, where my French friend works:
Entre ce que je pense Between what I think ce que je veux dire what I want to say ce que je crois dire what I think I am saying ce que je dis what I say ce que vous voulez entendre what you want to hear ce que vous entendez what you hear ce que vous croyez comprendre what you think you understand ce que vous voulez comprendre what you want to understand et ce que vous comprenez and what you understand il y a au moins 9 possibilites there are at least 9 chances de ne pas s'entendre. That we will not understand each other
The next letter illustrates to a "t" the NLP presupposition, or dictum, that the map is not the territory. It is clear that the territory must somehow lie between the employer's view and the employee's. Neither of their mappings could sensibly to taken to pass for "reality".
This is a nice one I found on the web.
