The longest 50 minute of my life
One of the dilemmas of an ESL online Instructor is having an unresponsive student. I just had one this morning and having a class with her is such a drag. 50 minutes felt like forever and I was extending my patience as I didn't want to be rude.
A good student is one who elaborates a yes or no question without being asked to explain. A talkative student is a good student. A student who makes sense, is a good student.
So what about the student this morning? Well, if you ask her a yes or no question she will answer you with this: EEEHHH! Is that a yes or a no? Who knows?!
When you ask her to give an opinion. She will give you a single sentence with probably less than 10 words! What an opinionated lady (sarcasm, sarcasm)!
I told myself I should be picky with whom to accept in my class because I don't want such burden. I'm such a bad teacher!
