Thanks for the A2A, Ahmed.
The ‘truth’ is a good option, although, sadly, it does not always get the job done.
Try this: Tell your teacher that it is difficult to hear her well from where you are sitting, and is it possible to move you to a seat up front.
I get this often in my class that students are unwilling to work with another student, my response is, typically:
“Deal with it, that is life.”
But whenever a student tells me that they would like to move for other reasons such as:
- they are cold from sitting next to the window, or air conditioner
- they are hot from being next to the heater
- they have biological issues and need to sit close to the door so that they can leave the classroom in an emergency without much disturbance to the class
- they cannot see the blackboard (well, whiteboard) well
- they cannot hear me well
- their classmate talks a lot and distracts them from the lesson
- their classmate has hygiene problems and it is disturbing their ability to focus.
…those are some of the reasons for which I would allow them to change seats.
Pick one, and see which one does the trick!
