Yvonne is a Seconday5 student. She has poor English language skill yet she still tries her best to work very hard every English lessons in order to improve her language skills. One day at the beginning of English class, the teacher distributed the listening test paper which conducted the last lesson to the students to check for their own results and explain the correct answer.
Since the seat in the classroom is divided into six lines and every five students composed of a row, the teacher distributed to the first students in each row and then the students had to pass to another classmate. Yvonne was sitting in the last row seat. When she received her paper from the students in the front, she saw her classmates were whispering, ridiculing her performance of the listening test vaguely.
Yvonne only got 20 marks in the test. While her classmates continued to whisper, Yvonne was furious, tore her test paper apart suddenly, yelled, cried and ran out of the classroom immediately. The rest of the classmates were shocked since they didn’t expect this would happen.
