Yes. I try to manage that as much as possible. I have been consistently talking with my HRTs over the years to get them to calm down about mistakes, and not use words like "muzukashii" etc. Unfortunately, they keep changing schools

At any rate, even if I was convinced there's enough value in evaluation forms for ES classes, there're too many negatives for me personally to want to use them. On top of that, I have 5 weeks' teaching left, so even if I was convinced, there wouldn't be much point. If the next ALT wants to use them, I'm sure they're perfectly capable of making them and using them themselves.
