School—Culips ESL Podcast

school culips esl podcast Here’s an episode idea we got from Daniel on Facebook. Thanks again for the suggestion! In this episode, Harp and Maura talk about elementary and high school in Canada, including sharing their own experiences. They also tell you about different names for types of students and use some natural expressions, as always. What’s school like where you’re from?

Maura: So the first one is teacher’s pet.
Harp: Yes, a teacher’s pet.
Maura: And this is the kind of student who’s always interested in learning and always wants to get really, really good marks at school, which is a good thing. Right, Harp?
Harp: Definitely.
Maura: But other students can find it kind of annoying.
Harp: Yeah, ’cause this is the student that always answers the question, always puts his hand up, or her hand.
Maura: Right. And this kind of student is always trying to be really nice to the teacher because this student wants good marks.
Harp: Yes, definitely. This is the kind of student that brings in an apple for his teacher.
