Daft'n'Dumb

Today's Italian lessons. We were about to listen to some dictate and then fill in the missing stuff. My brother and I were looking at the book as two damfools, not paying attention to what la professoressa wanted to say. She was going like "Chiudete i libri, prego!" Books, except for ours, closed. The two morons kept on staring and babbling. "Chiudete i libri, prego!"
Staring and babblings, still not paying attention. She's obviously had enough.
[in Slovene] "Those of you who cannot or don't understand, close the book!"

*blush*

I've never liked teaching or learning through intimidation or embarassment. I think it's very uncalled for.

I never liked students that were rude to the teacher either..they get what they give.

I agree... I always disliked students who acted like the own the whole world just because they paid for those classes.

Learning is a teacher/student process - teacher playing the lead role. Just the way it is.

Ha ha... that is too funny! As an Italian (who teaches it occasionally), that was a great story... And yes, the teacher gave you what you deserved, little distracted Tomaz and brother! :-)! Too funny, seriously... :-)

It was really, really funny. The whole class really bursted into a very relaxed smile.

And it was a fine lesson altogether. When we talked about relatives and stuff it was about nipote meaning both, a nephew/niece and grandchildren. So - if you're familiar with what's going on in Austria - you might understand why I said: "Oh, a niece and a granddaughter. That's so Fritzl."

Another burst.
