How Is Anybody Supposed to Know?

An indignant student: One of the questions based on the listening comprehension text was what country Eduardo was from. This information was not in the text!

Me: The text said three times that Eduardo was from Buenos Aires.

Student: And how were we supposed to know what country that is?

Me (having interiorized the lesson that a good academic knows how to sell herself): If you had taken the Hispanic Civilization course with me, you’d know this and more.

Student: Is it too late now?

Me: It is never too late to learn about Buenos Aires.
