My coworkers asks me which class I’m teaching this session. I tell her.  She tells me: “Good luck! That’s a troublesome group.”

After class, I noticed that the whole lesson went well. So, I ask the students about it.

Me: Thank you. You all did a great job today. That’s different than what a teacher told me. A coworker told me you were trouble and spoke too much Arabic in class. Do you know why?

Arab Student: *Happily and confidently* We’re good students! And, we didn’t speak Arabic last session teacher; we spoke FRENCH!

Me: (-_-) Sure….
