On the back of my last post on the subject, I made a decision to use the word in class, not directed at individuals but just to use it.
"I love it when I ask for volunteers and everyone puts their hand up!"
"I love your enthusiasm, Bob, but can you put your hand up if you’re I’ve got something to share?!"
Has it made a difference?
I don’t know yet but just trying to find a reason to say it makes me feel better and that’s got to be worth something, right?
