Mr, Right, Now, Mrs, Right.

Now, Mr, Eleanor, Mr, Right.

Now, I'm gonna just sit down, wow, Kindle.

We initially wanted to congratulate class, D1 T5 for your 100 passing rate.

But it seems some of you students.

Think that the School faculty and exams are stupid.

So we've decided they'll be sending all of you to more rigorous, International examination, such as IELTS tofu nsats, which will decide where you'll be heading to when you graduate starting from next year onwards.

So forget about your break, forget about Christmas.

Forget about the World Cup.

Better start studying I'm.

Sorry, guys, sorry, I'm.

Sorry, too.


Sorry, foreign.
