A class with ex-Sophomores
Today our group had an opportunity to have a shared class with the Junior students, who was sophomores last year. I guess this class was very interesting and quite productive as we learned some interesting facts about our learning skills by answering a questionnaire (I, by the way, better learn by experience, like. I should do something to learn it). Also during our class with third year students we revised some English proverbs and even learned a few new:
- Too many cooks spoil the broth, which means when there are too many people involved in trying to do the same thing, so that the final result will not be good.
- Barking dogs seldom bite, which means that people who make threats rarely carry them out.
- When the cat’s away, the mice will play, which means that without supervision, people will do as they please.
- Don’t count your chickens before they hatch, which means that you should not make plans that depend on something good happening before you know that it has actually happened.
- Success itself isn’t success, which means that from your goals and achievements. is built your general success.
And in the end of the class we had 20 minutes to talk with Juniors tete-a-tete, what was our main aim from this class as we wanted to know a lot of stuff about an upcoming Sophomore year. So, the first thing I’ve learned from our dialog is that the devil is not so black as he is painted and there is nothing scary in our second year of we’ll learn everything in time and won’t miss our classes. The second thing we wanted to know about was the Work and Travel program. As there was a girl, who participated in this program and had just came back from the USA, all of us learned a few crucial things about this program, which we should digest and decide whether it’s worth taking part in this project or not. Also from our today’s class I’ve learned that it’s not that scary to ask older students for help or advice, which is quite cool!
