Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

the teaching gives so much more satisfaction when your students actually grasp what you are teaching.

How very true...! Though I do find a general weakness in basic culture, not allowing them to make the links between fields (as would say Edgar Morin)... Meaning that we must re-invent new ways or pursue in the hyper-selective way of keeping only those who have already a proper background... Thus defeating the purpose of teaching!
