Hey, my German is pretty good, but I want it to be perfect. So once a week I am the student, not the teacher. It’s also fascinating to experience private lessons from the perspective of the students. It helps me see what works and what doesn’t work in class.
– the rise of right wing parties in Europe, but specifically in Belgium with people such as Tom Van Grieken, see the pic with the narcissistic pose above
– shit we go through with students, both positive and negative
– a bit of history
– migration and integration
– the disastrous impact of social media
– also vaguely touched upon: how hard it is to make friends in this digital age (my position is well known: friendship is dead and buried, if it ever really existed. Pleasant relationships are possible, but not what I see as true friendship)
After the lesson I contacted a journalist to see if my teacher can land a job as a journalist. I like to help, cause I like being helped. And I train myself to appreciate success. If you envy other people’s success you block your own.
So, 9,5 more working hours to go now. Started at 7 am, an online English lesson.
