QW 080812 “It’s official; he’s leaving”

Now it’s official that my pronunciation teacher is leaving the school. He said “I have actually been on an indefinite leave…, which may lead to my subsequent resignation.” Well, I knew that he’s on a long leave, and this may result in the very last thing I’d been wanting. Given the context that made him want to quit working for the school as a tutor, details of which I’ll decently refrain from mentioning here, there’s no other choice but to accept his resignation with a smile.

That being said, it’d leave me some kind of wistful feelings that I’m going to lose him as a teacher; the teacher who’d never go easy on my pronunciation and never miss mispronounced words and phrases in my speech; the teacher who’d always disclaim that he might’ve been wrong in correcting my errors because he listened to them only once and was not be able to check recordings of my speech, but would always end up being “right” in his statements; the teacher who’d claim himself as “finicky” about pronunciation, and he really is.

When I started this pronunciation project at the beginning of May, I estimated that it would take at least three months for me to obtain some noticeable improvements on my pronunciation. And, yeah, it’s the beginning of August. It’s time for me to move onto a new phase, probably. Thank you, my pronunciation teacher. I’ve become a bit more confident and comfortable in my speech with the American accent, thanks to your incessant correction, feedback, and comments on my errors as well as acknowledgement of my improvement.
