Dear Moderators and Teachers,

I am terribly sorry, if I have been quite annoying to you. I fully realize my mistake, and admit it. I know you are volunteers here and will help if you feel like and when you feel like. It’s morally wrong to urge you to help me urgently. But I would like you to know the reason why I made urgent, urgent requests. Unfortunately, the education system is quite dishonest where I live. Teachers possess quite a rude attitude towards students. They don’t teach a lot, but encumber the students with tons of homework-assignments. If, during a class, a student dares raise his hand to ask the questions rolling in his mind, he is scolded and seated back. In this case, he has no options but to hire a private tutor. The private tutor is approachable but unluckily not that qualified. Now you tell me where there this kind of system prevails how can a student learn English? Every teacher comes up with a new grammar, and denies others. Students are provided with bundles of study notes, they memorize them and try to reproduce the same in order to ace the exams. They totally forget they are learning a language. However if, by chance, a sincere, devoted and well-qualified teacher comes, he’s either very expensive, or doesn’t know how to teach, or disrespected by others, and told to keep pace with the prevailed system. The concept of learning English is limited schools and institutes only, and I’ve just told you how obscure the concept is. In colleges and universities, they say “You have grown up now. Make a habit of learning yourselves now.” The students are just given topics to write compositions on. Now, the question is “How can they write a composition, when haven’t been acquainted with the right grammar before?” Anyway, they, despite all this, bend over backwards to get over with the assignments, submit them, and get them back with a lot red marking. You will be tired of wading thru the issue, but it will perhaps never end.

Anyway, I hope you would have understood my problems, and will accept my apology.

Thank you,

Great Regards,
Hungry

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Hungry, you are very welcome, because you always ask nicely.

We just get a bit miffed when people DEMAND that we do something for them NOW.

Hi Hungry

You may have noticed that the members of this forum don't agree on everything either!Emotion: smile As for me, you have no reason to apologise for anything. I am not even a teacher and I don't spend much time writing posts here. Occasionally, if I see something that arouses my interest, I reply to a poster.

Looking forward to your questions,

My dear teachers,

Thanks a lot for such a polite and kind attitude towards me. I am very happy that everything is fine. I can be a bit impatient at times, but don't mean any annoyance. But, now I will try to be much more patient.

Great regards,

Hungry

Dear Cool Breeze,

It's real good of you, if you think I don't need to be sorry. I'm very lucky to have such great teachers.

P.S. I did NOT refer to the teachers and members on this forum. I meant 70% of the teachers in my country.

Great Regards,

Hungry
