Emily and Phoebe

Thursday, September 15, 2011


Emily's class is doing an English test this morning to determine which pupils will go into the Beginners class and which into the Advanced class. E is a bit stressed because she's afraid that she'll be asked to write out verb tables (which she's never learnt), fail the test and end up in the beginners class (which would be embarrassing, to say the least, as she's a native speaker). I assured her that there was no chance of her being asked to conjugate a verb or anything like that (though actually it's not completely beyond the bounds of possibility) and that if by some freak chance she doesn't get into the top group I'll go along to the school and talk to her teacher.

"Noooooo! Then I'll be completely humiliated..."
