Basically, it starts with a newly appointed English teacher Mr. Brown (Barry Evans) at a night school teaching a healthy mixture of foreign students. His efforts are met with constant frustration as he is often misunderstood with the words and phrases he is trying to teach. However a wonderful relationship grows throughout the series between teacher and students where his patience with them pays off, especially when they show their loyalty towards him. For example, the rather stern school principal 'Miss Courtney' makes various attempts to replace Mr Brown but the students simply cause havoc for any substitute until their beloved Mr Brown is reinstated again.
In no way was this series designed to mock foreigners, instead it displays in a very innocent manner the barriers that can be discovered between cultures and the sheer humor that develops from misunderstanding. Arguments have been raised about country 'stereotypes' but as with all comedy a subject or person is chosen and their quirks are exaggerated a little to create the desired effect. If anything, most of the mocking is towards the English language and how aspects of it don't make sense to the rest of the world, but it's all done in a very funny way.
How could anyone not laugh when 'Miss Courtney' addresses 'Taro' (Japanese student) and asks - "Taro, how many p's in a Pound? to which he replies, "It depend on size of peas-o!".Read more ›
Thankfully they didn't have those issues 30 years ago and this collection of story's is a laugh a minute.
Everyone has a favorite character, mine was the saucy French girl and the Communist Chinese girl.
The story's are at times a bit dated but the acting is brilliant and the characters created by these actors is superb and very real.
I enjoy putting on a episode when I feel I need a laugh and this set is a good start.

Excellent, so funny, what a shame that the world is far too politically correct these days. A little dated but very funny.Published 1 month ago by Paul Cripps
Love it. I had never seen this series before, but a close acquaintance mentioned it often in fits of misty-eyed reminiscence. I bought it for her birthday. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Pedro Holmes
