My school is really nice.  At dinner the other night, they asked if I wanted to order something else because the main course was pretty spicy.  I declined but the offer was very kind.  The teacher who's in charge of planning dinners seemed to think he'd made a mistake but I insisted that I was fine (literally, there's all this banchan that I'm happy to eat).  We can't avoid eating spicy fare just because one person can't handle it. 

He even suggested they buy ice cream for me afterward, hahah.  I didn't feel like it but he ended up buying a big bunch of bananas and insisted on giving me a few.  Well I'm certainly not gonna turn down free fruit!  :laugh:

You made the right choice. Bananas aren't poison. Ice cream is!

So, the funny thing about HALT FOREIGNER: THIS DISH IS SPICY is that I seem to repeatedly meet Koreans who can't handle/don't like spicy food at all. Whoa, turns out people are different.

Anyway, it's Friiiiiiday. No classes. Next week is midterm review, midterms after that. Everything is in bloom but it's not oppressively hot yet. My principal is taking me to lunch for
"noodles." Then there's that sweet break in May. Life is good.  8)  8)  8)

I had my first lessons in my new job today and it was a DREAM.
Japanese kids > Korean kids > Vietnamese kids  :laugh:. Tiny class sizes & a great schedule help too. I'm having a celebratory mojito!


Are you in Japan now??? Or an international school or some such?? Super exciting either way :)  Glad things are working well for you.

Well this is a pleasant morning! I just received a lovely bouquet of flowers~  For some reason there was a big delivery of flowers and the art teacher is passing them out like candy  :laugh:

I'm still in Vietnam! Working in the Japanese International School. Thank you  ;D I was really lucky to get the job so I'm excited to get into it!

Best of both worlds then: access to delicious mojitos AND well behaved children. I'm a little  jealous.

I taught my country school, double length, Friday afternoon, every-student-grades-three-to-six class today and for the first time this term, not a single child cried!

The grade 2 students at my main middle school are always making me laugh  :laugh:
One of the girls used to be super shy, too.  It's nice to see her opening up into a more confident person (she's still an introvert by nature, but not deathly shy anymore).

I never used that "chase the vocab" game with students over older than 3rd grade cuz I thought it would be too easy and they wouldn't like it but I used it today with a 6th grade class and they didn't want to leave the dang room when class finished :/ They demanded more rounds of extreme mode :/ Looks like I found a game to use next month...

One of the truest things I've learned is that 6th grade kids are just bigger kids. They try to act cool, but show them some goofy simple fun game and they love it. And when you walk past their classrooms during break times, they're all sitting around playing with blocks and stuff. Just big kids.

"Chase the vocab?"

I attached the version I used today. I used the pattern "It's (month) _____" and they had to follow the month and tell me first, second, third, etc for what number the month I said was under. So if I said "It's January...." they followed January and replied "It's January 1st!" if it was under card #1.
