hey everyone BJ Kolumbi here I have a few things to talk about in this post soyou probably already know what it's about judging by the title if you read it but I'll get to that in a second
I started high school today, I'm a French man Frenchman yeah I'm a Frenchman in high school now
apparently it's slang for a ninth grader I guess it's because France was the ninth country ever made but yeah the first day of high school for me it was kind of bad and kind of good
you see first things first. a bunch of atheist kids recognized me from my youtube videos and well they jumped me and locked me in the janitor's closet I I tried to escape by making like a bomb thing out of some random chemicals I found in there to blow up the door like on Breaking Bad but uh it didn't really work I guess but yeah
I eventually got out but I missed more than half my classes because I was stuck in that closet I did get to go to gym class though it's actually my favorite class now even though it's my first day you see there's this really cool new gym teacher and I really like him he taught us how to not be embarrassed when we change our clothes in the locker room
I was born without the ability to feel shame though so I wasn't so embarrassed anyways but yeah my gym teacher is really cool he kind of looks just like Ricky Martin (my favorite singer)
so after gym I went to the library and I got this book called a Moby Dick the title made it seem like it would be a good book but it turned out to be really boring so I just threw it in a trash can at lunch
what else oh yeah I played a really funny practical joke on my bus driver riding home you see I was sitting in the front seat because I'm supposed to sit in the back with all the other high schoolers but they were giving me some really mean looks so I went and sat in the front with some kindergartener kid anyway so the bus started to go really really fast and I just reached
over and uh well I reached over my seat and I and I covered the bus drivers eyes and then I said to him I bet you can't drive without looking and uh you see we almost kind of crashed into this huge truck but uh it was really funny
but now that I'm done with my first day of high school on to the main topic of this post that is of course my mom finally bought me lil B's new album
it's called I'm gay it's the Flintstones gay though not the the curse word that's also the title of the post but yeah little B is one of my favorite singers now because he has a B in his name and B is my favorite letter as well as my favorite animal and uh yeah that's that's all I had to say for this post
this was BJ kulumbi and my first day of high school so yeah signing off for now and be sure to read my next post because you see I'm gonna have actual footage of me with President Obama and I'm gonna be asking him some really important questions so stay tuned for that
let me know how your first day was
this has been BJ kulumbi signing off for now goodbye you too

|Oh no! It doesn't sound very good, but this kind of thing also happens in China. Students who suffer from school bullying will be beaten very badly... But I think you should stand up and fight! Don't let people bully you! We Chinese have a saying that "deal with a person as he deals with you". You must learn to resist! Come on! Let those people know you're awesome!|

|Opportunities not to be missed! You presently aspire to becoming a translator / interpreter and maybe also a politician. Given your proficiency in languages and your avowed interest in Japan and in China the chance to properly immerse yourself at a young age in Japanese and Chinese ways and to gain a deeper understanding of life in those countries is the best and surest foundation for a successful and rewarding career. Also if you were to opt for an alternative career - in business or diplomacy for example - the knowlege and experience gained would still be invaluable and prove a great asset.|
What does freedom mean to you?

|I think freedom is self - discipline. When we are great enough,the freedom is meaningful. But before we are strong,we should stick to our beliefs. When we achieve our dreams,we will be free of mind.|
| 18402 - Reply from Hira93 , 13 yrs (Indonesia) - 2020-06-13 |
|I think freedom is related to justice, where people are free to be what they want to be, no longer racist, no longer distinguish their skin color, where they came from, and what their religion is, but in reality freedom is still lacking in this world, see of course, there are still many people who are discriminated against, there are still many people who like to distinguish from one another because they are not the same, and some are distinguished because they are a minority, I believe the world is more beautiful with freedom and justice, we all want freedom and justice, that is why in my opinion freedom is part of justice|

I am in the "gifted" program at my school, and I hate it. Not he class its self, but how others treat me because of it. It's different at every school, but at mine it is based on your I.Q. It doesn't help that I'm not that popular anyway, so people act like I'm either 1) too smart 2) weird 3) the best at everything. It just puts pressure on me, and it causes so much stress. What do you guys have to say about it?

School generally stops around the start of December and recommences again at the start of February. As for me, I am home-schooled, so I don’t have to worry about this, as much.

Do you think evolution should be taught in schools?
| 18313 - Reply from Emily64 (France) - 2019-07-20 |
| I think it's a good thing that it is. All scientific theories that have good grounds / proof backing them (evolution according to Darwin, Einstein's relativity theory, DNA, etc...) should be taught in schools, and you should allow the students to use critical thinking to decide on their own whether they believe religion, science, or both. Lack of knowledge makes people vulnerable :/|

|Evolution theory is maybe true, but science is never always right. Evolution teaches the contrary of Bible.

In the world, also in our country, students has learned and studied only for their test or grade. It means that students study only for their own test, not for their substantial life. It is because the world's education is leading that education, studying for the test. When our teachers said "This concept is so important that you have to memorize all of these concepts." Students immediately notice that it will be on the test, not thinking it usually uses in their daily lifetime. However, I think that education is wrong. The true education should be able to be used in real life based on contents learned practically rather than urgency in memorizing textbooks and examinations. For example, the real reason why we study English is that communicating with others, but we don't have time and opportunities to talk others with saying English. We learn English in school only vocabularies and much grammars which is not using in daily life too. Also, education changing is not only for English. It is also for other subject like math, art, science, language. I dream is to change our education method to practical and creative. (Education revolution!) How about your thoughts? I'm really curious about other people's ideas.^^

| Dear Linda,
you posted your message about 2,5 years ago, but I only now saw it, still I´d like to reply. As a teacher I can tell you about my own experiences. Good grades is all most students want. They aren´t interested in what they can do with the stuff they learn, they only study to pass the next test. My attempts to do something creative usually cause negative reactions. They always want to know whether or not they will get a grade on the task. Or whether or not it will be in the next test. If my answer is: no, but it´s a useful task because it develops your skills - they are reluctant to do it. Plenty of colleagues have made the same experience; maybe that´s why things we do in English classes are mainly working with vocabulary and grammar! On the other hand, try to communicate without the vocabulary and grammar, LOL!
| 18299 - Reply from Wenyuan41 , 14 yrs (China) - 2019-06-12 |
| China is the same, but best students in my class can always remember to use knowledge to deal with daily life, that’s quite brilliant, I really like the life in European and American schools, the students learn for themselves and learn by themselves, studying becomes interesting and fun. In China, however, the teacher tells you what to remember. Sometimes my English teacher teaches something that’s never used among British and Americans! Grades mean everything here. I don’t like this although exams are useful, but we have to obey this.|

|I think people should be taught mostly the things we use in daily life. But we should study the things in textbooks and try to reward ourselves a higher education. But your right, it would help if teachers and parents showed the students where they will use things in daily life. I think, especially highschool students, students start to see school simply as a place to make friends and study for the next test. And some students may be pushed to get better grades in certain subjects (e.g A in Math C in Language Arts A in Science so on) But I feel they need to be recognized not as people who fail, but as people who have succeeded. Even if it's just a certain subjects, you don't need to have good grammer to be a accountant. And as long as they do know what they need to, they can succeed.
Education is important. But we need to recongnize where students talents lies, and need to show them were things can be used.

Should kids that independently homeschooled be able to participate in public or private school athletics? In the US citizens also pay taxes for public schools. Do you think homeschooled families should not have to pay taxes for public schools or at least receive the benefits of their tax? Is homeschooling using public school curriculum and teachers truly homeschooling? I personally don't think so and would like to here your opinion. What do think of when you hear the word or see someone 'homeschooled'?

In my college ,our teacher make the different class for the different levels. Then in normal times ,the more great class' test is harder than the poor class .Yeah ,I do not deny it ,but I can not agree they take the normal scores to the final transcipt. It is not fair .Because maybe the finally the poor students scores are close the great one , even higher .How irony it is! Also, someone retake course for renew the not satisfied scores and someone just because too poor to through the first text .But many teachers do not attention that, they always give the final scores at will ,and almost do not look the examination paper .
Is rigth? Yeah ,you make more people can graudate, but it is useful, they still poor. And the others can not find the good one through the transcipt .
Are you face that in your country? What do you think about it? Tell me your opion ,let us discuss !

Tu peux déjà faire une LV1 avec le CNED.

Premièrement j'ai lancé ce sujet car si l'arabe remplace l'anglais alors il faudrait que je commence à apprendre l'arabe pendant un an alors que le mieux serait que je termine mon apprentissage de l'anglais car je suis nulle (comme l'a dit Jonathan)
Deuxièmement, je n'aime pas qu'il y ait des amalgames ! Il y a des français qui n'ont pas "peur" de ce qui se situe de l'autre côté de la méditerranée. J'en suis la preuve car je suis même attirée par ça !
Après avec le contexte actuel je ne suis pas sûre que ce soit une bonne idée d'avoir de faire des amalgames pareil !
