One of my colleague’s sisters is in high school and recently took the national English exam. One multiple choice question was “which are all modes of transport?” In the correct option, one of the listed modes was a tractor. It is very common to see people driving down the main road in town on tractors, and not necessarily going to or from the farm. Today our APCD’s (I don’t remember what that stands for, but they are in charge) talked about the sites that are opening up for this year. Since there are only ten chemistry teachers we definitely have more of an idea of possible sites than people in larger groups like English or health. We will find out our site placements two weeks from today! My mom is taking her final exams this week. Yesterday we had an exam on the Bantu languages of Mozambique, today was a Portuguese exam. Tomorrow she has math, so I was helping her study tonight. I was able to explain area and circumference of a circle which apparently her teacher didn’t understand, so just wrote the information on the board and walked out.
