For anyone who has spent a significant amount of time in the Magic’s locker room, it’s clear that Dwight Howard has no shortage of personalities.

We’ve seen him play the role of dominant Dwight, an intimidator, Superman, the comedian, the impersonator and the leader. Heck, we’ve even seen him star in movies and commercials.

However, D12 recently added another mask to his various faces of Dwight collection: The English teacher.

During Orlando’s West Coast trip, Howard sat down with English, baby!, a website dedicated to helping people around the world learn English and connect with one another through the use of pop culture.

In his interview, Howard explained the proper basketball slang for blocked shots, displayed his expertise of the Chinese language and more.
