When I was in middle school, I was good at math. But when I went to high school, I became bad at math. I am very sad about myself because mathematics in my country is the main subject and if I want to be a good student, my math score must be high. In class, I often do not understand math lessons, in those times I would ask my friends about things I find difficult or complicated and sometimes I also ask teachers about my problems. Fortunately, my friends and teachers were very kind, always explaining me wholeheartedly. It made me feel very happy but some of my classmates were grumpy, they didn't want to take the time to explain it to me but I understood and sympathized with them.

At the end of the teaching whenever the teacher asks us have nt u had any problems or was it clear ?
i raise my hand and ask my question, if its useless again and i dont percept again i prefer to ask one of my classmate to explain me the tips have to do with the course.

Sometimes, when I can t understand, or miss something during the class, I ask my friend ( who sits with me), - what is that about, or try to figure out by myslef, but I do never ask my teacher, because I m too shy

When I don’t understand something in class, either I ask my friends and try to understand what I haven’t got or I raise my hands to get what I haven’t understand from my teacher.

What ı have missed? What have ı missed? This two quesition mean same or not? Because ı wrote what ı have missed? Answer is not correct.

Hello Captainblack_009

'What have I missed?' is the correct form and the other one is not correct. In most questions, the word order of the subject (in this case 'I') and the auxiliary verb ('have') is inverted, in other words, changed.

You can read more about this on our Question forms page.

All the best

Thank you.

I have completed the following lesson of Arriving late to class. The level that i choosed was intermediate B1 listening. When i don't understand something in class, i always ask my friend until i get what the lecturer say because im a slow pick up person and need to ask it again and again in order to understand it. Beside that, i plan to record their voice in case i wanna listen on what was our topic for the day so that i won't disturb my friend during classes and only ask if i really don't understand

This is quite interesting. The guy is exacy like in class except i dont arrive late and went to the wrong class.

i have completed the following lessons of A phone call from a customer, Arriving late to class, and Meeting an old friend.The level that i chose was intermediate B1 Listening.
