where was the beating?

My first wave of mid-semester evaluations from my Tuesday beginner-level class wasn't anything like the tsunami of abuse I had anticipated. I got comments like "class is so fun!" and "teacher is handsome" (ha!) and "I can speak English better now" and "confidence has improved." There were only very minor complaints about the round-robin format, which shocked me: I had been expecting a mutiny.

I can only hope this wave of goodwill will continue with my Wednesday beginners (whom I see next week; we have this Wednesday off for Hangeul Day), but how likely will that be?

You must have a very docile group of students. Either that or they're saving their fury for the end of the semester...
