What my elder care taker's English teacher does, according to my elder care taker's opinion. My elder care taker, a night public high school student, has complained about her English teacher in not precisely the same words I complain about not studying at night at all. In another post I stated her English teacher quietly slaps the words on the blackboards with no previous explanation as to pronunciation. In this post I state students won't keep up with class if they start taking English and their English teachers both for granted. Do their English teachers care? Do students care? Those who struggle to learn to pronounce words surely go one step beyond simple slapping words onto their heavily scribbled notebooks; those who don't just want to have fun. As my co-worker's students do.
At my co-worker's classroom, students willing to go to the toilet room simply and matter-of-factly ask him, "Mr. teacher, I want to go take a dump/pee!" Sometimes during altecations, students will up and complain to him, "Mr. teacher, Fulano wants to him me! Won't you please stop him?" Other lesser complaints deal with, "Mr. teacher, Cicrano gave a thunderous f*rt! It stinks! (Please remove him/her from class!)"
Now, I have this question, "Do public school students and teachers really care about English?"
