Anecdote: The things students get up to

Type: Anecdote

During my first months as a teacher my VHS advised me to contact any students who had stopped attending class without saying why. I dutifully phoned one of my male students only to get his wife on the phone. She was extremely surprised when I gave the reason for my call. She wanted to know how many weeks her husband had missed class. I covered up for him ( and for me) very quickly and said only twice. Obviously he had been using his English evenings for completely different reasons. Needless to say I am still very wary about enquiring why a student stops coming. Doesn't seem to happen any more anyway!
