It’s so nice now that my Portuguese is getting better (more importantly, I am able to speak faster, without having to think as much beforehand). Today I let one girl go home early because she was very visibly sick. Then a boy came up to me saying “teacher I am so sick, please let me go home” (he obviously wasn’t). And I responded “no you’re not sick but I’m going to beat you (I promise that’s a really normal thing to say here) and then after you will be sick.” The whole class laughed and he smiled and returned to his seat.
