Met with my students, confronted mass confusion in regards to which classroom for what class although already informed... but nevertheless, all worked out.
My first level of students slightly advanced total of 6 whilst lower level 11. As usual, more students usually means more social talking. Ironically, they are learning how to say certain expressions but not instructed in how or when to use in proper content. Hmmm....
Other than that, at this moment I'm writing on a whim ... for I am tired and tonight, watch film with students and transfer photos from last night activities... sort of writer's block and my charming wit is dry as a well, despite the rain outside.
I do want to share that my experience with these children are fun and extremely challenging. Of course, that means I learn of myself of each day... as for example this past Saturday, of mass confusion. I was assigned to teach summer camp, but my colleague had forgotten that I had last class with Oral English class which meant I had to take taxi back to Downtown Jinan and return same evening to meet with students. Also learned that same afternoon, that next week before end of summer camp, I am teaching 2 more classes in Jinan, then finish summer camp by 23rd July.
Luckily, I remained 'cool and collected' and used my frustration as an example importance to understand when speaking to each other in any language. Listening and hearing very useful methods of perfect communication. Just know that I didn't express my angry, rather focused in using that energy into my teaching and all was pleasant,
However, I did express my concerns ... but all spoken in jest... which made the situation more amusing. Language difference has moments in which I am learning everyday and greatly appreciate ability of enhancing my knowledge.
