Tourism school at SICHE

Thank you Victoria for your reply to my earlier letter.

I find it quite confusing when Victoria use some words or phrases in her previous articles. Generally speaking, she seemed to not care about using certain words that would cause ill feeling to others.

I will repeat myself for this time, regardless of whatever (nationality), the quality lies on the very fact that passion for teaching can be found within all societies including the Solomon Islands. Since she is a student at SICHE Tourism school it doesn't mean her attitude towards different lecturers represents rightness of good lecturing- Foreigners are good lecturers and locals are not that good? In my mind to be successful in education you have to learn to love the different styles of teaching. But if a student has a negative perception of the teacher, then he or she blocks her self from learning.

But I thank her for her debate to open more discussion on this issue.
