How Students Really Spend Their Day

Here are the results of the first student survey created and carried out by first semester English language students. We asked six questions about life as a student here in Huatulco to three hundred UMAR students: This is what we found out….. Thank you to all who participated!

We asked:
Which is your favorite nightclub here in Huatulco?
Not surprisingly an overwhelming 75% of you named the papaya as your ultimate favorite place to spend your Friday or Saturday night!

How often do you go to a nightclub?
Teachers! Do you often wonder why your students fall asleep in class? Our survey showed that a not so insignificant 26% of students at UMAR go to a nightclub at least once a week with some of those going two or three times a week! Just 18% said they never go to a nightclub, and the remaining 56% manage to get out usually on average twice a month. Mystery solved!

How many hours do you spend on the internet?
56% of you spend on average at least an hour a day surfing the web, 7% spend more than 2 hours each day on the internet, and the remaining 37% surf the web less than 5 hours a week.

How many hours do you spend doing homework?
31% of you spend a thoughtful hour or so doing homework every day, 48% said they spend a studious 2 to 4 hours a day doing homework, and a numerous 21% said they spend an incredible 5 hours a day or more doing homework! We expect all 10´s then!

How much do you spend on food and transport in an average week?
The cost of being a student, for the majority of you, lies somewhere between $200 and $500 pesos a week. However 11% of you are surviving on as little as $100-$150 pesos a week and a few on less than that! On the other end of the scale a small minority 10% of you, are getting through a whopping $700 or $800 pesos a week! Could it be all those trips to The Papaya perhaps?

What do you think about the timetable at school?
41% of you told us that you find the timetable exhausting or difficult at best. Whereas 55% of you said it is tiring or busy but ok. Just a tiny 4% of you said it was good or even easy! Where do they get their energy from?

This survey was done by 1st Semester Elementary II English students.
