I only teach what's necessary <3.

Lol, you can tell class was interesting when the whiteboard looks like this after class XD;.

Of COURSE I'm teaching useful things! Sheesh XD;.

i can understand how the rest of them got there.... but frog? this needs an explanation! (sadly... i'm not joking. especially if this is from an active class lol)

We were doing a lesson on "giving advice for problems" (Millenium A... lesson 10, I think?). I told them that my brother was "selfish" and a "jerk" (which I had to write on the board), because when it's my birthday, he forgets to buy a present, but when it's his birthday, he says "Where's my present?" (TRUE FACTZ, YO)!

Anyway, one of my students suggested I buy him a "fula," which I didn't understand. But then she made hopping motions on the desk with her hand, and I said "OH, a FROG!" So yes, their advice to me was to put a frog in a box and give it to my brother on his next birthday XD;;;.

I dunno... sometimes my Sprint 8 classes look like that on the board XD. It depends if there's a dialogue or not. But yeah, it's a strange skill being able to identify a lesson-type from someone's whiteboard XD. I'll try posting another picture sometime, and you can try to guess the exact class! That would be awesome XD.

Yeah, I know what you mean... but then again, they're studying to be fluent, so perhaps it helps them to know what a native speaker can and can't understand from them. Just do what I do, and turn it into a game of pictionary, if you can't understand the student. Hand them the marker XD;. Drawing is the easiest way to bridge a miscommunication, sometimes.

lol~! guess the class from the whiteboard~ XDDD that'll be fun~

lol! yes, i often do the pictionary thing. and the great thing about some of the lessons i've taught lately is that they've involved charades (which my students were nervous about the first time, but now seem to adore XD), so the students from those classes are getting used to using gestures to help them out too.
