Fatigue of English Teacher

I used to point out the confusion when my students said, "Yes," when I said, "Who's she?" When this happened, I gave a lecture on an open-ended question and a closed-ended question.

Years later today, I no longer give a lecture on grammar but will let my students know that they are making an error. Instead of giving a lecture, I will ask, "Who's she?" again and repeat it until my students notice their errors.

This week, one of my students said, "Yes," to my question of, "Who's she?" I did not accept her "yes," and said, "Who's she?" When I repeated the question three times, weariness began to settle in me.

Maybe I have taught English too long.
