castling

So some of my ESI comrades, Zach (pictured above in front Nelahozeves), Stephen, Andrew and I all took a walk through the Czech countryside recently. Our main goal was to conquer two local castles, but seeing as the gates were left opened and unguarded, our conquest of each was, shall we say, less than epic. And, to be honest, they technically cheateaux, but conquering a cheateau sounds too much like "breaking and entering," whereas "conquering a castle" is still widely considered cool and worth putting onto a résumé. Regardless of nomenclature, we did take a lot of pictures, chase a few peacocks, and cross the mighty River Vltava, as pictured in this semi-epic, dramatic silhouette picture.

"...they technically cheateaux..." is this the kind of english you are teaching your students? And i don't want to hear "I is" in response.
