Lessons From My Students

A few weeks ago, I did a post on Lesson From My Son, and today I want to continue with something I learned from my students...

The next two weeks are finals in my Spoken English classes. My students are at a fairly high level in their speaking ability, so I was able to give them some hard questions in the final exam.One thing I was struck with, was how honest they were. I only got to talk to about 40 students today, and I can see a theme. Pain...

What is on thing you would change about your life?
-"I would draw. When I was 12, my parents made me stop drawing and study. Thats why I am studying accounting today. I don't want to, but I have to."

-"I would have a different Mom. My Mom was mean, and beat me. She never said any good things to me."

-"I would study what I want to study"

-" A family that supported MY dreams"

What do you look for in a future girlfriend? 
-"Someone who loves me more than their job"

-"Someone who respects me"

-"Someone that I can trust. I can't trust any guys"

-"Someone who won't divorce me"

The lesson I learned today? The need is great, greater than we can possibly imagine. Father, give us the laborers......
