One of the things that happened last year was that I was in a different group for English then anyone else, because frankly, the teacher was not at the level she should have been. I found the class very enjoyable, and I learned loads. Coming over here, I was anxious about what would happen with me in English, and I have been saved by…. an Irishman. His name is Mr. Calahan (????), and he is one of the best teachers I have had for most subjects. He is able to make everything funny and enjoyable, and be serious and have us get work done at the same time. Today we had a Mock-SATs-Exam in English about Richard III, and while I usually hate to don’t like tests, but this was incredibly fun. One of the things I really like, is that even though I’ve only been here for a year, he still says that I will get a level 7 in my SATs, and the highest anyone can get is 8, and NO ONE gets 8, so he thinks that I can basically get the highest possible. I find that really quite amazing, and I’m worried that as soon as I get back the quality of both the education in general, but more specifically English, will go down. While I’m on languages, I must say that I have found that I am loving languages to death. I love doing German, and it will be a shame to stop when i get back.
