HUAIROU, Beijing Province:
Hmm, well considering 'games lessons' are supposed to be fun - mine completely backfired! Class 12 and 6 were completely uninterested! Class 11 made me feel a bit better - they got really into my games, but they're normally a really friendly class to teach.
I think some classroom games only work if the class is in the right mood - and there doesn't seem to me to be anyway of judging that!
Start with my 'weird festivals' lesson plan tomorrow, hopefully that'll be a lot better!
Oh, got some information today - next week I have three days off! Tuesday-Thursday - for the students' exam week! Bloody typical of this school, information is difficult enough to get hold, and then it changes!
Still, I can't complain - I get a holiday! Planning on going to Shenyang to stay with the guys up there. Need to try and organise it, I don't know how long it takes to get there or anything.
