772. It's a relief we aren't alone

One day teacher of English B said to teacher of English A, “The daily conducting with your kids in classes can teach you many things. Last year I taught a class of four students;
‘twas an extra-curricular course. Half of the class was dedicated to do their school homework, and the other half to speak in English by means of games, trying to create immersion in English.

I wasn’t able to reach and assist my four students with their own homework in the same class. One day, an idea came up to me as the class was taking place.

I said to one student of 14 to correct an exercise from a classmate’s course book. This latter student was 9 then. So for the older student was the first time he had to correct somebody else’s exercise – it was maybe the first time he had to
focus on grammar and find out errors in another person’s exercises. Summing up, this was great for the helper and for the assisted boy.” / Photo from: alfamblog alliance-tibet org
