Back To Work

And another semester begins in lurvely Daegu.

We’ve gone back to teaching “non-mixed” classes, which means all the students are from the same major.

Problem is, the way the Korean college entrance exam works, you’re basically herded grouped by English language ability (but apparently this might be changing).

So if I’ve got the nursing students, the material is far too easy for them.

If I’ve got any other major, the material is just right or even too challenging.

But they all get graded on a mandatory college-wide curve, regardless of major.

I know, I know — it makes zero sense but hey, welcome to South Korea.
