I'm 26 years old and my 16-year-old student has proposed
to me. She is very attentive and I like her very much as
a student. But I don't want to have any sort of romantic
relationship with her. Her parents also trust me very much.
But she's very serious about this and has said that if I
don't respond positively, she will stop studying. How can
I get out of this?
I am sure you know what is the right thing to do. The 16-year-old
is immature and has an infatuation for you. You should dispel
any such notions as soon as possible and preferably stop
teaching her. Don't worry, she will not stop studying and
is just threatening you.
I am 19 years old, have completed my H.S.C.s and am waiting
for my results. I have some spare time now in which I would
like to improve my English. I want to get admitted into
an IELTS course but I am very weak in English. Will the
course help? Do I need any preparation before taking it?
You should go over and talk to institutions that offer the
IELTS. Meanwhile, there are other ways to improve English
such as reading the newspaper regularly, speaking, listening
to audio English learning programmes, etc.
I'm in my MBA Second Term at DU. I would like to know about
the appropriate age or time for marriage. Whenever the topic
arises, there is a lot of controversy. Though this varies
by situation, what is your opinion on the matter, for both
men and women in our country?
The legal age for marriage in Bangladesh is 18 for women
and 21 for men. However, there is more to marriage than
just abiding by the legal age. Marriage requires a high
level of maturity, sense of responsibility and commitment.
It takes a lot of hard work to make it work and two people
must be prepared for a lot of challenges. In my opinion
it should be postponed until the couple feels sure about
each other, or in the least, both people should complete
their basic degrees before going into it.
