HUAIROU, Beijing Province:
Friday, Friday, Friday! Very nice to be so close to the weekend!
Had my two classes today - class 4 is supposed to be one of the higher level classes, but they're really difficult to keep focussed. I worry now, after seeing how the students responded to Miss Cao - about the fact that they just show absolutely no respect to my authority as a teacher! I think most of the students like me - they talk to me after class and always wave and shout my name outside of school, but in class time they just completely ignore my instructions!
Anyway, after school I did some more prep for the boys - they're now coming for two hours, which I was a bit worried about filling. The tuition session went really well though, the time just flew by!
They do make us laugh - one of the activities we did was a 'Tell us about...' board game, and one of the questions was 'things that make you angry' - Rick's answer was 'potatoes and ugly dogs'!
