Tales from the classroom

Well - the title sounds more exciting than it really is - sorry about that. I'm teaching my fourth class tomorrow - we are doing adjective structures and dependent prepositions. A dependent preposition essentially refers to an adjective with a particular preposition that goes with it. For example - certain about (about is a dependent preposition - so you wouldn't say certain with, of, to, at etc).

Thankfully this is an easy one to understand because I am living in fear that the students will realise that I'm bluffing and that I actually have no idea about the hard stuff - like verb structures. I'm also pretty crap at verb tenses. I'm sure once I've managed to "get it", they'll stay stuck in my brain, but I just can't get my head around them yet.

I'm sorry I don't have anything else exciting to tell you about - but I no longer have a life. This morning I got to college at 8.15am and left at 6.15pm. Only 15 more working days to go.

Just know that everyone goes through life "bluffing". Do not be concerned. Guaranteed, when you master that "bluff", there will be a new "bluff" to replace it. :-)

Besides, if they are like every other student on earth, if they do realize it, it will not be the first time they found out a teacher didn't know it all. Everyone at one point or another realizes that the teacher doesn't really know much more than them and is basically bluffing.
