Fact: "I cannot hear you..."

This is what I wanted to share with you. If you were a virtual teacher and the student claimed that he or she cannot hear you, it means he or she is making an alibi. The mere fact, he or she can hear you, but he or she is not familiar with the words being used by his or her virtual teacher. That's why you need to dive into their level of thinking and understanding. Not only for kids, but it also applies to some adults. How do you handle your kids? How do you handle these people pretending that they cannot hear you? Image Credit: img.ednews.net

@Shavkat Yeah I hear that, must suck to teach that way. for kids. Much props buddy. There is a military trick. You get the one that everyone respects and the rest usually follow, Kids are different depending in age, if really young could just be age but if old enough to comprehend stuff like what is going on in the world that should work . Just get main kid involved in helping out and get them to say things like trying to learn here, stop your nonsense. Its really like teaching dogs in a way.Young pups, we as people can only teach them so much and they just do not understand. You get the old dog that's been with you for years and they speak their language and all of a sudden the young pups behavior and attitude just shift to where you need it to be.If you mean young adults, it should be no problem and you probably already have someone in mind

@crossbones27 I do agree that it depends on the age range of these students. There are some lapses though if adults will be taught.

For one, I try to keep my cool. It's not worth losing it over someone who wants to be stuborn. Secondly, I would approach it differently, depending on the person. Kids are a little harder, but adults shouldn't be. If an adult is taking a class, they're doing so because it's a choice. If they don't care for your instruction, you don't need to continue to instruct them. You can polietly direct them to resorces to continue on their own, and inform them you will not continue if they wish to waste your time. Children you typically need to be a bit more firm, if necessary get the parents involved.

Indeed. Kiddies need a special teaching methodology. It needs a lot of patience. Adults can easily be taught unless they are considered slow learners, too.

It's difficult because not all kids or adults will behave the same way so not easy

I do agree with you. How much more for elders who cannot hear that much.

So in the modern world, it is possible the student couldn't hear. speakers die, go bad or the person has them turned too low. it is frustrating, but sometimes, it is true they cannot hear.

You have a point. It must be their internet connection because they are using wifi. Sad to say that they still blame the virtual teachers. Most of us are using internet-connected to the modem.

No children so cannot say on this , but in this case " as they pretend" it clearly shows that they are not interested in the conversation , its their loss

The majority are not into learning the English language. In fact, they were forced. I cannot do anything if they are like this. They are just wasting their parents' money.

@Shavkat I agree, but this is what happens when anyone is forced to do something, parents also should understand their children's interest

@prashu228 I think Chinese students were forces because they are weak in this language.

Well, if you are sure that it is an excuse, just tell them that, if they are not interested to learn, they should stop playing this game and stop following your classes.

I did keep on telling them these things. They don't listen so I just ignore it and go along with the lesson. I don't mind if we finish the lesson or not.

I would ignore the statement if it looked like the person was pretending. However, if it's legitimate, I would try to find out the reason.

Oh my. Don`t dare do that to my mother or they will really shout at you and tells you to go and pack yourself out of the house. My mother hates liar. She will be more happy understanding you if you just tell her you don`t like it than lie like that

I agree that it is not a good thing for the elders to do this. For young ones, they do pretend to be deaf which I hated the most.
