    How to understand this?

    I am a married mom. One day I said to my boss, a single America man, I wish to improve my English and he replied "just looking for a good foreign man, but what did I expect. Stories I can tell." he has been trying to find a woman. what did he really mean? Should i be concerned?

    Re: How to understand this?

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    I am sure that you will get many interesting replies.

    Here is my opinion.

    I think that his quoted words mean something like:

    I do not think that you want English lessons. I think that you want an American who can get you a visa to the

    United States. But I should have expected this would happen. I can tell you many stories about other women who

    have tried to get me to help them, too.

    *****

    Yes, you should be concerned. He does not believe that you actually want English lessons and nothing else.
