My colleagues, part 1

I teach most of the high level classes at our school, and that requires making lots of extra exams, quizzes, etc. It’s a lot of work, but I totally love teaching advanced levels.

A few weeks ago, Smileroid asked me if he could have a copy of one of my exams so that he could use part of it for one of his classes. His classes are in the lower and middle level ranges so he most likely wouldn't be able to use it with them, but I still gave it to him. A few days later, he asked me to look at his answers to it and see if I agree with them. HE HAD QUITE A FEW MISTAKES! Easy things, like missing definite time signals for the past simple tense, etc.

For once, I was almost speechless.
