Oral English (07 4 Year)
After a year of Communicative English the students are starting to understand. We learn by doing. Really - we don't have to memorize long passages of English!
I can still see them on that first day. The frightened looks. Shy responses and standing to answer questions.
"May I come in?" A formal request to enter the classroom if they are late.
In April a confession: "I was afraid to talk to you this year. I didn't know if you were busy or if you would even listen to me."
The always interesting Chinese student.
I could learn things from them for years.
