Teacher:   Can you tell me about your early education?

Student:  Well, I went to1 a school for very young children from the age of four and I remember that I didn't enjoy it very much at all. My 2 from the age of 5 to 11 school was a little better, especially because my mum was a teacher in the school. She taught in the 3 younger part of the school and she was actually my teacher in first 4 level, but when I went up to the 5 older part of the school I didn't see very much of her. After that I was lucky enough to receive a 6 chance to go to school without paying fees for a very good 7 from age 11 to 18 school. My parents couldn't have afforded to send me to a 8 not free school so it was a really great opportunity for me. It was a 9 only for one sex school, so there were no boys. I'm glad l didn't go to a 10 for boys and girls school because I think there are fewer distractions so everyone can just concentrate on their studies.
