My wife and I trained in Queensland
, with an instructor who was Japanese. His accent was very thick, it was often difficult to understand what he was saying.
But, the moment we submerged, his incredible body language took over, and he was able to convey the most amazing range of concepts and instructions under water
. He should have been on the stage.
Interestingly, I am not sure if this is normal, but his name and instructor number are included on my licence. I never noticed it till now.
