Englishdroid is a website which takes a highly satirical look at the world of English teaching.
History[edit | edit source]
The site is the creation of Simon Barne and was originally known as "I hate teaching English". As the site disappeared from 2008 to 2010 people can be found lamenting its passing in different forums..
In 2010 a post on the well-informed TEFLtastic lamented the loss of the site,  and this seems to have stimulated Mr Barne into recreating the site - though he warned that updates would not be forthcoming.
Although people have speculated about the reasons for the site and Simon's disappearance the answer seems to be quite simple. His post on 1st of August 2010 stated that he was alive and well and still in TEFL. It seems that there had simply been some complication in renewing the domain name.
At the end of 2010 the site was back at https://sites.google.com/site/englishdroid2.
