How do you tell a 7-year-old kid that her English teacher at school is wrong? And she still insists that it is right to pronounce 'delicious' as deh-li-cious?
I've told her (my student from my tuition class) that the right and only way to say it is di-li-cious but I guess she doesn't believe me!
The teacher (from school) is always right when you talk to small kids. Can't blame because they see their school teachers almost everyday and think the world of them. Even when their teacher is wrong, they still say that teacher is right.
It's kind of hard teaching small kids. They get restless easily. But 2 hours of English is quite enough. Enough for me and enough for the kids. I also like to teach when the student is paying attention and willing to learn. It is going to be tough if the student is a difficult one.
Well, I think I'll only be a teacher for a couple more weeks since future varsity students have to register at their universities on the 1st of July 2007. The university results will be out by the middle of next week! On Thursday, 2 days ago, my friend sent me as SMS saying that we could check the results on Friday. It's a false alarm actually.
Anyway, good luck to all students and teachers who are right and wrong!
