It's the first day of school in NSYSU. We had a meeting at 12:15 noon but I was 15 minutes late. It's a good thing that they still were having lunch when I arrived. It took about another 5 minutes before the meeting actually kicked off.
My 3-hour Oral Training 2 course went fine. It was a long class, but somehow I got the feeling that I'm going to like this class. For one, the students are smart and they look pretty responsible and diligent. That's a good start. Secondly, they speak English well. Although there were some mistakes [mostly lexical] they were however conscious of using the correct grammatical form. So, that's OK, too.
Tomorrow, I'll be teching Oral Training 1 for 1st year students also at NSYSU, and I'm not exactly sure what my students will be like. One assurance that I get is the fact that this university is a good university, it's a National university and it's difficult to get in. Those who get in are considered excellent students. So, isn't that reassuring?
Gotta go. I still have to prepare my syllabus for Language and Culture.
