Re: I just can't ignore

Can we get back on topic and offer constructive feedback?

Next time she smiles at you, slap the bitch! She is from Eastern Europe anyway and dresses a bit...

(Did anyone understand the actual problem? Wearing different clothes doesn't qualify as bullying in my book...)

Re: I just can't ignore

Your main objective of joining the class is to learn the language, and if you're lucky, make friends in the process. If the latter doesnt materialise, just focus on your lessons.

If she hasnt reciprocated your politeness and greetings, ignore her then, and if she gets too excessive laughing and making fun of you, just tell her to eff off. You paid to learn a new language and not to be intimidated by anyone.

This is no longer high school, time to stand up for yourself.

this post is so far off topic it will be automatically deleted in 5...4...3...
There's no way this thread will get deleted....

a)Who posts that sort of thing as your first post?
b)Quote MusicChick: "Hello Witch" (love that)
c)Ouchboy labelled a 'Mod'
d)Lost inbroad and Porch1909 argue over vocabulary
e)Begga loses it for no reason
f)The cryptic script of the OP

....... this is FANTASTIC !!!


My two cents:
Given how the OP writes, clearly there is clearly a cross cultural / language barrier issue here.

I'm with PaddyG, just pull that woman up next time she puts you on the spot, LOUD and Publicly.

Sort the issue out and move on - there are bigger things in the world to get angry at.

Re: I just can't ignore

...or the OP should learn a 40 word sentence full of expletives and put downs, in perfect French, and stream it out at the next class.

The shock and silence should last for a few weeks.

I agree on your analysis, but am a bit surprised about your conclusion. Looks like your intercultural communication skills are clearly superior to mine...

Seriously: Could it be that the lady in question is not a bully at all, but simply a bit loud and the two have an incompatible sense of hunour? I'd suggest to discuss it not loud but alone with her once and explain that it annoys you if she laughs when you are speaking.

Yep, totally corny ain't it ?

I was "fresh off the boat" and very very keen to impress the nice folk at EF.
If only I had known...

But still, I keep it around for posterity.

I love these oddly written rants. I bet one could collect them and publish them, sort of like Burrough's cut-ups.

Why don't you make a own thread where you can post all your egocentric rubbish? "Because nobody would care" is not a valid reason to hijack other threads.

We have a witch in distress here and are trying to help.
