It's Victor's first day of seventh grade. He is excited to see Teresa, a girl he likes and wants to impress so she can be his girl. He gets a paper that says he has a class with her, French.
“Yeah, well, I picked up a few thingsfrom movies and books and stuff like that.”
I remember doing the same thing when I was a kid.
Victor talked to Teresa but was embarrassed of what he said and thought it was stupid.
Can you help me learn French?
Victor really wants to see Teresa and keeps wanting it to be French class so he can be with Teresa, and it comes. He starts presenting to the class responding to Mr. Bueller, his French teacher in French, acting like he knows what everything means to impress Teresa.
Mr Bueller is a good guy. I am going to like seventh grade.
Please don't say anything!
The bell rings and everyone leaves, except for when Teresa stops Victor to tell him how impressed she was that Victor knew French. Victor was really scared that Mr. Bueller might correct him, but he doesn't because he did the same type of thing when he was younger.
I didn't know you knew French!
Victor goes with what Teresa was saying and says that he knows some French from movies and books, even though he doesn't know any French. They leave the class, and Teresa says that Victor should help her learn French together.
He went to the library and bought French books. Victor now likes Mr. Bueller and thinks he's a good guy. He thinks he is going to like seventh grade and it is going to be a good year.
