“A Boredom Reliever”
/ By: Ruth Inocentes /
The 1:00 PM class is for many people the most tiresome class. It’s when we want to take a siesta right after lunch. For working people, however, it’s the time to resume work, and the teachers in Philinter are not exempted. It has always been quite a challenge for me to teach TOEIC Reading at this period. Either I’m sleepy or my student is! At first it was difficult, but in the end, I got the hang of it.
Then I met my new student from Taiwan. He was totally different because he was always so “high” at lunchtime. I don’t have a clue where he got so much energy, but it helped us a lot. His enthusiasm and eagerness to learn/improve his skills was incredible. Sure enough, he got better and better each day after a series of mock tests every weekend for two months; and before long, he was able to reach his target.
