I told my students in Spoken English class today that they should expect an oral exam in two weeks. No one said a word about it in class, but after class one student came up to ask "what can we do if we will not be here for class?" It turns out that the university just recently announced a five-day May Day holiday, which I believe runs from May 1-5. (This is still notionally a Communist country, so May Day is a cause for celebration.)
It's nice to have some time off, but I sure would've appreciated a little heads-up!
Now I have to figure out what I'm going to do with all that time off...
