With digitalisation being the new norm, classrooms have turned virtual with students attending lectures and teaching sessions within the comfort of their own home.
Despite the fact that online learning has made its way as the standard learning concept for the past year and more, students are still facing various challenges such as internet connection, lack of equipment and even juggling part-time work. This is especially evident in the rural areas.
However, for this teenage boy, his struggles do not fall under the above category but is rather due to the noise of his pets!
Safiy Najwan recently uploaded a video to TikTok explaining the reason he does not open the microphone during online classes, and it went viral right after.

According to Safiy, his pet geese are the main culprit when it comes to concentration during online classes! It is apparent that his mother rears geese and they were seen hovering in the area of his house while making loud noise.
What caught the attention of the viewers was when one of the geese was seen dragging a black garbage bag in a humorous way. The situation seemed all to similar to a gossip session between the geese.
Safiy’s video was rather relatable to many of the students within the village area, with Netizens commenting that they have to deal with the same situation but with chickens instead.
Safe to assume that Safiy might not be switching on his microphone anytime soon to avoid his voice being muffled by the loud chatting geese.
Thus far, the video has garnered 70.9k likes, 1,773 comments and 1,596 shares.
While online learning may not be easy for some, we urge students everywhere to stay safe and be strong.
