Guess what? I got asked to teach more classes, all because I was willing to fail students and follow the guidelines.
No, I am not a strict teacher. No, no, no. I used to be a student. This is for the interpreting program and in order for the program to be respectable, you just can't pass on students who do not deserve to move on. It's that simple.
Would you pass on a medical student who couldn't figure out where the thyroid is and suddenly he is ready to be a doctor? NO!
