She/He is One Heck Of A Great French Teacher because she/he:
She/He’s one Heck Of A Great American Student because she/he:
|1. arrives 5-10 minutes early to set everything up. You don’t want to spend the first 10 minutes of your 60- minute expensive session watching her/him looking for her/his book, material… O.K. maybe she/he is VERY attractive, and it doesn’t bother you observing her/him, in this case, I recommend to watch T.V. or read a magazine instead of taking classes.||1. is on time. French teachers are sensitive creatures, they may not appreciate to be interrupted by students who show up late with the grace of a rhinoceros. Except if you are a rock star like Madonna for instance, who would be charged more than $300 an hour.|
|2. is prepared! She/he should have read and edited your compositions before your session. Correcting the assignments during the session is too late. Let’s say you wrote a paragraph about a special topic, your teacher should check the special terms you used and discuss them in class. Taking a quick look at it is not preparation.||2. always completes her/his homework doesn’t come off with these very popular student’s excuses:
1. I worked a lot last week.
2. Did you really give us something to do?
3. I forgot my homework at home.
4. Sorry I changed my bag.
Sometimes they like to combine all of those excuses, which is, if you ask me, very creative: “I couldn’t do my homework because I had to a lot to do at work, but what did you give us actually? It doesn’t matter, I don’t have my book because I picked my other bag.”
The: the dog who ate the assignment excuse is passé. Don’t bother to use it.
|3. doesn’t gossip about other French teachers, because she/he’s confident enough to know that she/he’s better than the others and ignore them. She/he doesn’t gossip about his/her other students either.||3. does not laugh at other students’ accents if she/he doesn’t want to be laughed at by her/his French teacher.|
Are you a great student? Do you have a great teacher?
