Welcome! :D

Hey, dear Students!

How are you? I missed you all during the vacations! It’s nice to be here sharing experiences with you again! :) I wish you all a wonderful semester! And let me know if you need some help or if you want to share something. By the way, as you have to write a short story about an unusual classroom event, I remembered that last year I received an e-mail with a funny story from a friend of mine. Here it goes... I hope you enjoy it!

"Marlon asked the teacher to help him get his shoes on at the end of a busy day. After quite a struggle with the shoes, which were a little tight, Tessa [the teacher] finally got them on.
'They're on the wrong way round, Miss,' mumbled Marlon.
She realizes that he is right; they are on the wrong feet. Staying calm she swaps them over for him.
'They're not my shoes, Miss,' Marlon murmurs again.
Tessa fights hard to keep her cool and asks Marlon why he hadn't told her before. She then kneels down again and helps him pull the shoes off.
'These aren't my shoes, they're my brother's and Mum told me not to tell anyone.'
At this point Tessa can feel tears coming. She helps him back into his shoes. She gets him into his coat and wraps his scarf round his neck.
'Where are your gloves, Marlon?' asks Tessa quietly.
'Oh, Miss, I always put them in my shoes!'


  1. Hello Lily, nice to see you again. Funny story. You know what, last friday I had a class in my pólo with teacher Josalba. I haven't met her before. It was an amazing class, and I learned a new word in English which I won't forget anymore, the word is "allegiance". Don't you think that it is a beautiful word?
    And also I knew how you started to be our virtual tutor.
    Lily I really love you and all your stories and tips for the English. They help us a lot.
    Now I have to go. My week is very busy

  2. Hi Lily "redhair"! This' Evermondo n Hope you are OK!
    Oh yeah, children are always funny because they do unexpected things. That's why they drive us crazy! :))
    Bye Bye

  3. Hi Lilly,
    I missed you...
    I don't know if I cry because of Marlon or If I laugh by the situation... By the way, always happen curious things with children!!!
    See you later...

  4. Yes, Marcia, Professor Josalba's classes are fantastic! And nice to hear that you also missed my "redhair"! LOL I want to believe that you, Evermondo, are saying that it is beautiful! LOL

  6. Hei, Karina, talking about curious things that happen in classrooms, the UFSC Tutors told me that they had a great time reading your (I mean all students' ) Final Project 2. It would be nice if some of you would be willing to share your stories with us! Please, please, please!!!! :)
