On a more positive note . . .

Now, I may have come across as "slightly" negative in my last blog, so I want to point out that, actually, a lot of students did more than the required amount of blogs. I guess my problem is that I always focus on the negative stuff. I have decided to focus a bit on the positive stuff from last semester:

I learned a lot about different cultures.
I met some really nice people, and I will always remember them.
Some of the students improved quite a lot! It was amazing to watch their English growing over the semester.
The students gained some valuable skills that are going to help them in their future studies.
The students made some new friends in the class.

See, there are lots of positive things from last semester . . .

From now on, I am going to try and focus on the positive things.

When life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade!

Hey Scott!
I can understand how frustrating it can be to see your students struggling, but it's only because you care!!! You know how much they rock, and how smart they all are, so it's frustrating. But dont' worry... You're an awesome teacher and mentor! I hope you have a great time during your holidays and I"ll talk to you soon!!

Scott, this will be your last blog? Does it mean that you will thoroughly update your blog when the next new semester coming? :(
I love your blogs. They are amazing, and always provide students nice enlightenment.
Scott, wish you a good Christmas and a new super great class!
