Observation from Classes

I taught some Italian students the other week and it was really interesting yet I found their little quirks quite fascinating at the same time.  One particular observation that I noticed was that whenever I entered the classroom was that all the students stood-up and then waited till I sat down.

Just thought I would share this with other people and if you have noticed little quirks from particular nations please feel free to comment.

  1. As a teacher it is nice to have the opportunity to view the cultural boundaries in the classroom.

    One thing that I have noticed about Spanish/Columbian students is that they shake your hand if they have had a good lesson (I assume that's the right assumption).
