Actually, that isn't true. I'm pretty good with history.
But I suck at economics.
And so of course, our topic for speaking at length was economics.
I knew it was coming. Our teacher, who is incredibly organized, has us do our readings each week on the topic that we will speak on the following week. We get new vocabulary and we write sentences, paragraphs and stories using that vocabulary.
It is a great system that really prepares you for speaking on a topic.
Well, sort of. Usually it has worked that way.
But our teacher then gave us the specific topic.
"How do we fix the world's economy?"
If I had that answer, I would be making lots more money than I am!
