What does this mean?
"I really liked my teachers Daniel and Anna. Especailly Daniel he is professional and funny. I practised a lot and I can speak better now.

But I think I did not learn enough.

I wanted to learn more. I wanted a bigger challenge."

thinks you're a nice person...
...but he or she did not learn enough
FACT

Challenge

How can we transform “undoable” demand into “doable demand”?

Write down a piece of language
that you taught recently
Write down the type of a familiar or
predictable activity that you gave
your class recently
Note down an "achievable" task that you assigned to your class recently
Note down an "unsuccessful" task that you assigned to your class recently
Note down a relatively easy activity that you assigned to your class recently
