exact

but it does happen, not always or like my first degree but it does.

i guess ppl are older and work while they study so they dont have time for b/s and stuff.

only one course?

I assume an even bigger reason is that post-grad students are even more motivated to their studies. Some of the students who don't have a gruduate may study only because they feel they have to study, e.g. to get a job. (Sounds too familiar to me.) But I assume post-grad students study more because they want to, not that much because they'd feel they have to.

Something similar to this actually happened. A woman told some teenagers to shut up in the cinema and they followed her and her family into a restaurant and threw bleach in her face.......

Yeah, well, this attitude is one of the main problems in France, too. Students pay very little, and therefore, they have no respect for education (they also have crappy conditions to study in, to be honest, but if you want to study, you can - I did).

Sometimes that makes me really angry, and I just feel like lecturing them, and saying to them: "do you realize that higher education is a f***ing privilege? Are you not ashamed that French taxpayers are paying for your education, while you just sit there and do nothing, or just disrupt the class?"

And also, I keep thinking that one day, people will realize that students don't care because they don't pay, and when they decide to change the system and make them pay thousands of euros for their education, then they will start crying and getting angry, saying that it's a scandal and education is a right and so on.

More or less as they do with tests: they don't give a shit during the whole semester, they don't study, but then when they fail they start crying or getting mad at you ("the test is too difficult it's a scandal the teacher's a bitch" and so on), and suddenly it looks as if their whole world is about to crumble. And in a way you feel sorry for them, because they're young and don't know better, but sometimes you're just fed up and you feel like saying: "Well, you see that ridiculous overreaction of yours right now? You should have put that energy into sudying about 6 weeks ago. Now it's too late. Sorry."

Yes, for one, they're more mature, and also (at least in France), none of the "tourists" reach post-grad level. Students who don't give a damn usually don't make it through beyond the 3rd year.
Anyway, even in first year, you have plenty of really great students, but to disrupt a class it only takes a few idiots or even a few selfish good students (the kind who listen to the teacher and contribute when they feel like it, and chat with their friends the rest of the time).

Re: Told a group of people to shut up today...

For the 3 years that I was in university I always sat near the front so I didn't have to deal with that.

But yes I know there are peasants who don't shut up in the back. Sometimes they have to be put in their place

Slade approves.

Fakervic played at 150% against Federer as usual.


Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.

Re: Told a group of people to shut up today...

people who talk during class in college are just huge mugs

Federer will win another grand slam.
Cilic is not a one slam wonder.

This. It's annoying when you are playing games, chatting with people on MSN/Facebook, watching sports on live stream, spreading vulturing theories on MTF, etc... and you can't fully focus because the professor just can't stop yapping about random stuff

I always sit at the back too

Same here. Still though, I do wonder why I even bother turning up for the lectures in the first place

Funny thing is teachers actually think I'm taking notes just because I'm typing on my laptop all the time, even got passed in a final oral exam because the teacher found me an 'interested student, always taking notes'

In my case, it's because my parents are paying, so it'd not be very nice to just stay in bed every morning

Re: Told a group of people to shut up today...

I'm always part of that group of people. The thing is i do shut my mouth if a teacher tells me twice but i don't give a shit if a classmate tells me to do so no matter how many times
