We play a lot of games here at home. Due to our different personalities I have become less rule bound. I can deal with creative interpretations of the rules without ending the game immediately. I even suggest fun or convenient changes to help a game along when it has got bogged down.
This free and easy attitude is not helpful in my Arabic classes. I am embarrassed with myself that I so easily suggest cheating to my team when we get to the end of a vocab game. The class is not my kitchen, and I am not playing with my dear relatives. So I have got to learn something really important: fit in with everyone else, play the game by the rules and LEARN MY VOCAB.
