Suzuki Sensei Ep02

I have uploaded subs for the second episode on D-addict.

Just finished watching episode 2 a while ago and must say that I enjoyed it immensely. The issue tackled wasn't as controversial as the first episode but still in line with Suzuki sensei's not-so-conventional approach to teaching.

I like how the drama has a teacher that takes the time to analyze and figure out his students. God knows that teaching is probably one of the hardest jobs/vocations in the world.

Actually, one of the reasons why I've been MIA these past few months is because I got a part-time job teaching college kids. I wasn't even two weeks into it and I was all ready to throw in the towel. So hats off to all those teachers who take the time and effort to educate these tech-savvy and gadget-loving generation who, for one reason or another, can't be bothered to crack a book. :(

feels nostalgic watching this one. i want to go back to high school again. haha..

Chuks if u have time. i have questions:

Is this Private or Public School setting?
Is the food really free?
How old are these kids? we dont have grade 8 in phlppines so i have no idea.
Is there a Gaiji Keisatsu connection from this like the writer? an anonymous comment from Akiramike's blog said it.

what happened to the viewership ratings? 2.16% seems like no one cares at all.

@zooey = seems like all college people are easier to teach than high school dudes. like we were in college, teachers dont care if students were drunk, high, or absent. my suggestion is, FAIL THEM. haha.. in the end, if they graduate, they will just end up like me. a bum!

@ jt - If I may interject, I believe it's a public school setting and the school collects a portion of the cost of the lunch they provide the kids. Still, it's partly subsidized which is why it's important to make sure that they don't waste it.

I also read somewhere that Japanese kids undergo 6 years of elementary, 3 years of middle school and 3 years of high school... in partial response to your query. So I'm guessing middle schoolers are between the ages of 12-15.

As for flunking college kids, I'd do so in a hearbeat. Unfortunately, the oldest Catholic university [or so they claim] in the country doesn't seem to care much for academic freedom... which annoys the hell out of me.

I agree, the second episode was less shocking but it was equally deep. And so you know, there'll be more shocking episodes coming. Not sure if I can translate those words without sounding too... you know, but I'll try.

College kids, high school kids... they scare me when they bunch up. They are at sensitive age, and can be pretty brutal. So good luck... is the only thing I can say!

As zooey explained, it is public school, and you have to pay for lunch every month.
They are at the second year of middle school, so around 14.
This script is written by the writer who wrote Gaiji Keisatsu.

@ Chuks

Oh wow, I'm already looking forward to the upcoming episodes. Best of luck with the translation work. I see that episode 3 is already with the editor--wohoo!

Yeah, kids nowadays are scary. They live complicated lives but then again, the world isn't the way it used to be. It's kinda sad how kids seem to mature too early. When I was 13 all I did was worry about homework, crossing over subdivision fences and catching the latest episode of Sailormoon on tv.

And thanks for wishing me luck on the teaching gig. I'm a few days away from surviving the first semester of the school year. And yes, jt it's true that I have a bunch of spoiled, obnoxious little critters... but I've been told that I'm far more scarier. Lol x)

thanks for the info guys. i can do google stuff but i want to hear it from you guys.

14? that means 10 yrs younger than me. here in darwn, im working with 14 yr olds and they seem nice and like you most expect.. less mature. haha.. so not so scary like the drama. when i was 14, hmm.. i remember catching the episodes of cooking masterboy and slam dunk on AXN. haha..

ah ok, that's why they graduate high school at 18. we graduate at 16 in high school because there is no middle school.

@ zooey -are you teaching at St Thomas University? haha.. go USTE.. what r u teachin? aha! you are instilling fear into their minds! that's one way to solve the problem. i think UP and other gvmnt univrsties can do merciless flunking though.

is it me that missed school days when watching this? haha.. the teasing, fighting over small things, immaturity...

and like i said before, kids are scary nowadays. i have to admit, im not a fan of kids.
