Today I finally did what I have been putting off...I asked our teacher when our progress test is.
She said the first part of November.
Um, like next week first part of November?
I hate progress tests. I mean really really really hate them.
I never do as well as I think I should. And yes, I know it is not realistic to expect to be a 3/3 at this point, but it still bugs me.
So after my teacher protested about how great these tests are, just chatting, reading and getting an idea of how we're doing.
Here is the problem...when she is speaking to my classmates, I understand every word she says. And I know how to respond.
And then she speaks to me...
I think it is performance pressure.
Anyway, she asked what she could do, and I told her my GREAT IDEA!
We should have our other classmates in the test...I would listen to what she said and translate! Then she could grade me that way without me having performance pressure!
Well it seemed like a good idea at the time.
