Childhood memories: Our first day of schoolCreated by:
So it has been a while since we posted our random non-medical topic where we pull together to share our thoughts and experiences outside the realm of medicine. I would like to have us share our first day of school experiences. I am sure most if not even all of us can remember that far back as it is a distinct moment in our lives.
My first day of school (or at least it is one of the first few days in nursery) I couldn't speak in English but I was mixed in the general nursery class anyway. My teacher had some drawings on the chalkboard. She pointed at one and asked me if I knew what it was. Being the bright kid that I was (ehem haha) I told her that is was a "Fenster". She told me I was wrong and that is was a drawing of a window. I insisted that it was Fenster but she still continued to tell me that it was something called a "window". I got so frustrated that I cried and my mom and dad had to come to school. My teacher talked to my parents and said that I kept on calling the window a "Fenster". My mom laughed and said that "Fenster" was the German word for window. I was correct all along. I had to go to ESL classes from then on. :D
Any interesting memories from that far back any of you want to share?
