This term started on the 4th but already they want my final exam draft by the 20th. That's a month before exams. So exams last week in February and I haven't seen my Monday classes yet... and i wont next week cos its scout 'camp'. 4 periods this term then. Oh and there's listening and speaking tests.. and a worksheet. Not much planning for me then apart from finding 40 conversation questions relevant to the 3 units I won't be teaching this term. The majority of kids in government schools don't seem to learn much here. Even if they get 2 of of 40 in the exam they do a half exam and if they fail that they still get 50% anyway. And they know it.
