What happened to my Memory

Well here I am again and desperately trying to remember what I did in class yesterday, thankfully I never got any homework, well at least I don't think I did.
I was slightly nervous to say the least, then the teacher appeared like magic in a box to my left on the screen, and gave me a big smile. I  then  looked down and wondered who  the  hell was the other woman in the box under hers with the silly grin on her face, and oh my god it was me, with a pair of outsized headphones that not only refused to stay on my head, and so I had to keep  pushing them back up (Note to self buy a pair that fits before next week) my hair was sticking out  from impossible angles that a top hairdresser could never achieve (or want too he would be ruined) and it gave me the appearance of looking like I had just been  recently electrocuted.  No wonder she gave me a big smile bet she wanted to crack up but felt that I had already been humiliated enough. She very kindly suggested that we switch the camera off probably so she could keep her face straight whilst talking to me.

So for the next hour I did my best to speak in French, and have to say I really enjoyed the lesson, not only was the teacher interesting and came over as a caring person she managed to pull information gently from me to give her an understanding of  my level of French, and she listened to me and then corrected me in such a way that never made me feel totaly stupid, although I decided not to ask her what she thought  my level was as I wanted to remain positive.
The screen was filled with  pictures, phrases  and questions,  sometimes she typed in what I was saying to let me see where I had gone wrong showing me instantly and that I found very useful.

I have already booked  my next lesson for next Thursdsay so we shall see how it goes but this time I will be prepared. Must dash as I have a headset to buy.

hahah, oh no! This was too funny to read, though : ) I had a similar experience while attempting to learn another language. I was in Spanish class in high school (it was forced) and something was not connecting between the spanish book and my brain, and my teacher noticed. So one day, my teacher calls me to the front of the classroom at the end of class and suggests that "Spanish isn't your strongpoint" and tells me I should pursue other areas. It was my last day of spanish, and I had barely made a dent in the semester. Good luck next week with your new headphones! I'm sure you'll do better than I did...

Yikes look how the time has past and I haven't been back, still no sign of the headset and I ordered it in May, or did I. Mckenzie your teacher sounds like she was a bit mean. I truly suck at languages even my own is a challenge sometimes. Still I might give it another go but it won't be today, are you surprised?
