I guess I am reaching the premature end of another beautiful relationship, with yet another sprogskole…
Well, when you go into your lesson not quite knowing what to expect and subsequently the teacher says – ‘Hvad skal vi lære idag?” then you know it’s potentially going to be a shit lesson. When the idea of insults and bad Danish words is snapped up, before any other ideas are provided, then the lesson is simply becoming more of a waste of time. Afterall, we all knew the good and bad things to say, it seems. After reviewing the module test criteria, you then confirm your beliefs that this lesson is not relevant and you could be learning more about stuff that is, including the more important work/job topic.
And, why on earth we need to take 2 x 15-20 minute breaks in just 3 hours 15 mins of study is beyond me, especially when one of them is so close to leaving time anyway!
I am so tired of hearing more Thai in my class too. We are completely discouraged from using any English (until it’s a last resort or convenient for the teacher) but the Thai language is quite prevalent in class, at all times. It’s tricky enough to learn one language and I don’t need the added headache of listening to constant unintelligible crap, which is also irrelevant in a Danish language class.
Plus, where is the homework? I have had next to no homework since going back to sprogskole – hardly encouraging or motivational at all!
If there are any other ways to learn this godforsaken language, that don’t cost the earth (private tuition) then I’d be happy to know about them.
