The Story of Lee
The little boy I mentioned whose name is Lee continues to amuse me. Generally his class is slow and lazy, although they're mostly ok to teach. Anyway, I rhetorically asked them if their tests are good or bad. And since they're slow I had to ask this through the TA since I pretend not to speak Chinese. Most of them agreed their tests were not very good, but not him. He piped up, "考得很好。進步十分。" I'm not sure if that's what he said exactly but the gist of it was. "My test was really good. I improved 10 points from the last one." Which is true, his first test was arounda 70 and the next one was around an 80. This last one was a 90 so he's going to be insufferable now.
