So I just started teaching again and my first full week of classes is finally behind me.

Some of the week was hard, some of it was confusing, and some of it was good.

But  some of it was just great.

For example,  this I really, really,  really <3:

On the first day I set up a contest-y type in class activity, divided the class into groups and had chocolate for the winning group. BUT the winners broke up the chocolate bars they won and shared them with the whole class including me. They totally subverted the sense of competition but also completely convinced me that I am teaching in the right country again.
