Assunto:  Teachers' sentences...
 
Mensagem: 
1) cap cap   (certainly somebody said that patronizingly, meaning the berated guy wasn´t using capital letters, or in a satirical-ironical way because he used too much.)


2) I am drawing a blank / I draw a blank in class from time to time
       (he is in need of memory pills, he just forgot what he was going to do, to write, to say etc   to draw a blank - dá um branco.)


3) hard lines!
     !

   
4) You've improved no end.
    The chosing of words sounds a bit outdated to me, but my first thinking is that it basically means:  "Você não melhorou nada."   But I am not a hundred percent sure.     Let´s wait confirmation.
