I tutor a 13 year old girl.
She didn't know what the words triumph or resentment meant.

Does this strike you as being odd?
Am I the only one who thinks a 13 year old should know what "triumph" means?

What was the last thing that surprised you?

EDIT*
Should I say something to her mom? This isn't the only time she hasn't known a word that I think she should know. This was just tonight's example.
