Already Decemeber!

GTS hopes to see everyone at the GTS/JCC dinner this Friday at Kyoto Sushi at 7pm! Year 2010 is just around the corner and I enjoyed 'ratemyprofesssors.com' as I did a while ago. According to the response, I am an awful teacher letting motivated students down! I am unclear (as I also admit this all the time!). I am just reading a textbook, hahaha. I am NOT teaching Kanji (well, what can I do? teach you how to write? well that is the computer's job in this era!) I am not clear on the grade... (might be right. But I can tell you exactly how many points you got out of how many possible points at any time. You can do the math and you can figure out your grade as 'D' or 'F' but often your grade report says 'C' or 'D.' Why? I don't have to tell you, do I? YOU know how many points you get! Miracle will never happen! Most of other comments might be true! Sorry for those who quit learning Japanese because of me but I know those who enjoy my class outnumbers! Agree? Hope you do!

very much agree, the grades are unclear because they are decided by magic... I'm sure of it

Yeah, but it should be positively vague as you know! -GTS

Never questioning is a good idea! -GTS

This is Adam.

Obviously this person didn't want to put in the work necissary to learn Japanese on their own and is blaming you for their own shortcomings. I fail terribly at your class but I can have a conversation with a Japanese person. I think that says something!
