First time for everything
Oh my, I think I might have just failed my first exam, ever...?! The grammar exam was OK but the listening exam?! eh... well not in this lifetime. I didn't recognize about 50% of the characters.. sure, we were allowed to use our dictionaries, but that doesn't help when U have no time to use it... Too much content, too much new stuff, and too little time. As a result, I am 99,9% sure I failed. Let's just hope some of my smart-looking classmates were as lost as me. Example of one task: listen to a radio news story about how an epidemic, like SARS, spread from Africa to Asia... and then summarize its main points. (completely new vocab). Another one: listen to what old people can do to improve their eye-sight, also a vocab I am not quite familiar with... Well well. We all have to fail sometimes, I just HATE sitting in a classroom feeling like a dumb ass! We weren't even allowed to prepare for this exam, as its content was not related to our course material. Nice one!!! OK, that was a little rant that I had to get out of my system. Now: prepare for tomorro's exam.
