Today was my final day of the term at YUFE (Yunnan University of Finance and Economics). This last week has been Oral English exams which, for my classes, meant groups of three doing a 2-3 minute role-play set in a restaurant. They all managed to do enough to pass, though some presentations were more elaborate than others (various props, romantic upsets, unusual menu items, etc). Overall, it's been a good first term at my new job, with signs that the students' English language levels have improved, especially in their confidence and fluency. Now I just need to sort out their dodgy pronunciation and idiom-usage. But first, two months holiday!
