Student Contact

I love teaching! I learn something every day when I teach. And every interaction I have with my students is fascinating!!! 🙂 And after five months I feel like I’m actually getting to know some of my students, which is also really nice. 🙂

Thanks to some text messages from some of my Grade 11s I have learnt about lots of smileys. I tend to just use smile, frown and wink. But there are lots and lots more that I’d known about and lots I hadn’t. 😀 And some of my students have a really great sense of humour – dangerous, one might say. 😉

I believe that some of my students are now actually reading my website! So hello, and welcome and do tell me if you spot any spelling, punctuation or grammar mistakes! And let me know what you think of my blog and if there is anything that you’d like me to write about. Since I give you homework and corrections, it seems only fair that you do the same for me.

I’ve had some phone conversations with some of my students. Which has been very nice. Their spoken English is noticeably better now than it was in January – which makes me very happy. Keep it up!!! And in many cases their spoken English is better than their written English, which is slightly surprising (tenses people, tenses).

I am expecting some emails from them, but it seems that getting net access is harder for them than I thought it would be. Even though there is a computer room at the school with a broadband connection and they do seem to have had sufficient access to see my website. But, regardless, I am very much looking forward to hearing from them and am sure the emails will be worth the wait!! 🙂
