I finished the quiz in a breeze, maybe less than 2 minutes, and as I finished, I began to watch others with curiosity. As the only international student in the class, I was bewildered to see how hard-working they were making each choice. After time up, we exchanged quiz and give it a score. I scored 100/100. 3 Americans of our group scored an acceptable 70/100, the other one did not tell. Later the teacher asked if the essay was hard for us, and some answered yes. The teacher (from Taiwan) then showed a puzzled face, may be she was also wondering how come American student sucked so much.
Now it’s not the time to be cocky; I still have lots to learn and just because I did one quiz well it does not mean I am of any good. Still, a flowering spirit of joy lit me inside.
