The twins that I meet in class

In the course of my career as a teacher, I have the pleasure of teaching twins. As always, I will have to find a way to differentiate in order not to mistake one for the other.

Last year there was a pair of Indian boys in my Fifth Form Malay class. It was easier to recognise them because although both looked alike but they parted their hair on different sides, one on the side and the other on the right.

This year I have a pair of Indian girls in my Form 3 Malay class. I still have difficulty telling them apart because I have yet to spot the difference in features to differentiate them.

Usually, their language achievement differs as one will be better than the other although they are identical twins.
