Who gets bothered by mobile phones, the students or the teachers?
The answer is us, the teachers. Chinese students don't even notice when a mobile goes off and in Asian culture it is acceptable to have your phone ring at any given time; in a cinema, restaurant, business meeting, funeral, you name it. We are the only ones who get bothered by it and students are never so rude as to take the call in the class, they will always go outside.
The fact is, they are the customer, they are adults (some of whom are very busy people) and it's their time - if they want to waste it on taking phone calls just let them. Teaching adults is not high school nor is it the army.
