I know this is silly, but for me it’s big progress. Today, for the first time in three months, I raised my hand and talked twice in one class! 😀 (I did talk before, but not twice in one class)
First, it was my answer to the professor’s question, and the second time was a question to the professor.
I’m sure talking in the class must not be a big deal to American students and even to most internationals. But for me, it was always a challenge. When I was a student in Korea, raising a hand to ask a question in class while a teacher was giving a lecture was considered to be a disturbance and slowing down the class. Because of that influence and also the language barrier, most Korean students are quite in the class.
Therefore, talking in the class has been a big challenge and now it’s a big accomplishment for me!
