left, right, left, right...

And so week two begins. My class is up to its full complement of 16, (although I won't be suprised if there's an attempt to squeeze in one more before this week's out). I've learnt all of their names. They are theoretically beginners, 'level 1' but our system here has a 'level 0', 'absolute beginners' you might say, and they've all done that before coming to me. Tom, (who arrived on thursday), was formerly their teacher, and clearly knew his onions and has done a canny job with them, because the students are all far above beginner level. Which means I have a big fat margin to do more than just plod through the set student book with them…
