If you’re complaining about the slow pace teaching of course material that you already covered back home, why didn’t you just prove your vast, expansive knowledge on the placement exams. I’m sorry, but I studied Genki I in my first year so I don’t see what’s so painfully boring about starting from the beginning of Genki II in the second. If it’s too easy for you, then fine, but you don’t need to go making me feel bad about it because I’m right where I’m supposed to be. It’s those of you in the “I’m too good for this class” camp that are making me freeze up when spoken to, intimidated, scared and anxious. If I were in a class full of second years for whom all of the material is new and unknown, it would be a better and more cooperative learning experience. You’re being arrogant and you have absolutely no place to be. I’m trying my hardest to keep up and you guys are asking the professor to pick up the pace and then turn around and say that we’re in this together and that I can ask for help anytime. It’s fake and cocky and it’s more hurtful than you know.
If you really want to help me you can start by not looking down at me.
