You don't have any experience teaching so how do you expect to teach? (She meant no experience teaching English, which she clarified when I answered fairly sarcastically due to my rich history with teaching).

I have a lot of experience teaching x, y and z. (After she clarified since she was stupid): I believe my rich teaching history speaks to my ability to teach a variety of subjects, and I have experience teaching a language, specifically Spanish. The skills transfer fairly well.

I'm not surprised you didn't get a offer. You sound increasingly rude and disrespectful not the interviewer.

I think you're confusing "rude" with "bitter." Either way, I'm not going to show respect toward someone who doesn't show it toward me. In retrospect, I answered the question seriously, saying that I've taught a lot of subjects, including a language. After she clarified that she meant teaching English specifically, I questioned in my head why she phrased the question in the way she did, but answered as though I was the one who made the mistake. If you take the time to get salty and comment on a Glassdoor interview question where, at the end of the day, the original poster is just trying to share their experience (rude on their end or otherwise), you're definitely gonna struggle through the interview if you had this "bad cop" that I did. Good luck bud.
