Students: 9 (sad!)
One thing that went well: Yesterday’s lesson. And I still had abysmal attendance today. Although I hope that if I taught horribly my students would stop coming to class, I just really can’t take it as direct correlation between bad teaching and low attendance.
One thing to improve: Actually, today was pretty good too. Even in terms of talking too much – I stopped myself several times.
One surprise: Realizing for myself that English spelling rules for -ed verbs and pronunciation rules are both pretty simple and pretty consistent, but are 100% unrelated. It’s so crazy!
