Teachers/examiners with less skills than pupils/examinees

Story in Trouw about a German teacher who can’t speak German. This wouldn’t be so freaky in jobs-for-the-boys Spain, where the most important requirement of a foreign language teacher in the public sector is that they have a bagful of certificates in the local languages. The result is that most foreign language teachers aren’t very good, and that parents need to fork out for private tuition. An excellent and experienced English teacher I know who works for the military recently took the state English exam in order to avoid problems with the crats. At the end the examiners asked him how they’d done.
