I wonder by seeing the hit # 19, and if Mister Teacher decided surprise little Juliana
by asking her to produce some sentence with, say, twenty one numbers of the list?
What do you think if he/she asked sentences with tricky ordinals such as "translate into English _João Paulo Segundo? Felipe segundo? isn´t it ordinal in Portuguese? Yes, they are.
Problem is that we learn in early years ( younger than we study English indeed) that Roman numbers are used to high religious authorities and kings from first till ten (so Leo XXIII don´t use ordinal numbers to talk about).
Still more, if Mister teacher proofread Portuguese?
That´s why Brazil is lagging behind (not only for that, there are other factors too) countries like South Korea, and others Asian countries.
I friend of mine went to USA to take classes for his career, and imagine: there was no grade, only was granted "satisfatory" or "non-satisfatory" he would pass or fail, simple like that.
With our "points" system we fool ourselves, there is much more at stake; a pupil should be assessed in a day-to-day basis not every two months or so.
At college we see how this change, every two months you have a test but in the second period, for instance, you´ll have questions from the subject of first one to answer. A clever device for you not forget, isn´t it?.
