Go Super to Listen Go Super!

An ace is someone who is very good at something. An ace pilot can fly any plane in any condition. An ace salesman can sell anything to anyone.

An ace is also a card in a deck of playing cards. In most games, it is the best card in the deck. That makes sense, doesn’t it?

But that’s where Jason gets confused. Teacher Amy tells him that he will fail if he does not ace the final exam in her class. Naturally, Jason misunderstands her and goes out looking for a deck of cards so he can take the Ace.

Jason finds Jeff playing cards and borrows an ace from him. When he gets to the test, he attaches the ace and leaves. But afterward, he learns from Ella that to ace a test has nothing to do with playing cards. To ace a test means to do very well on it.

Now that he understands what it means to ace a test, Jason runs back to school. Teacher Amy lets him take the test again. This time, he concentrates and tries as hard as he can. When he finishes, Amy tells him he failed. But it is just a joke—he actually aced it!

When is the last time you aced a test?
