Exams were given ten to fourteen days ago, but the students and parents received the report cards in the mail last Friday. Now the email and phone calls come pouring in. (I wonder where the concern was previously, but who am I to judge?)
Funny comment from one: "How could my daughter fail the [foreign language I teach] exam? She studied hard and we are both native speakers of the language. Isn't that impossible?" Well, I taught English before too, and if having native speakers at home guarantees a passing grade, many, many students are not doing so well in a "native speaker" environment.
