They installed the English Hancom on my computer and I don't know if it's the 2014 version or not but I don't care because I can understand everything!

English Hancom is bad Hancom. I had it on my computer, and it was super buggy. Randomly unable to copy and paste things, formatting issues that weren't present in the Korean Hancom, etc.

Had to uninstall it and go back to the Korean one.

These days, I feel like I have many #rare and #based insights to share with people, just like the Based God does. I think I should start a topic for sharing my various advices and "life hacks" and also discussing Lil B.

While messing around with the settings on my computer one day (trying to switch the whole thing over to English, unsuccessfully I might add), I somehow managed to switch Hancom to English. I didn't download any different version, just somehow changed the operating language. Of course it only worked with Hancom and didn't work with Microsoft Office which is what I was really going for. So now I have English Hancom and Korean Office. Better than nothing I guess.

I love having a toaster oven. Last night I baked some eggs in tomato cups and had it with brie cheese melted on toasted baguette slices. Marvelous!

One more day of classes after today and then a field trip on Wednesday with the whole school and the rest of the week I can spend prepping for summer camp! Which oughta be fun cause I'm just doing games and dances under the broad theme of "American culture"  ;D

what games and dances are you doing? I'm supposed to teach nine "American culture" classes for my camp and I don't want them to be boring but it's kind of hard... didn't find a lot of great stuff by searching this site either.

Dances: Chicken Dance, Macarena, Cha Cha Slide, YMCA, Cupid Shuffle, Electric Slide

Games:
~Pass the present (hot potato variant-- when the music stops, you unwrap a layer and get a piece of candy-- the last layer reveals a bigger prize, like maybe a chocolate bar)
~Zombie Dice (making homemade dice. Here are the rules http://www.sjgames.com/dice/zombiedice/img/ZDRules_English.pdf)
~Jenga (going to add tape to pieces and write English phrases or questions)
~Pit (card game. Making a homemade version. Gonna change the cards to appeal to my kids more -- like zombie or minecraft themed or something. Considered having them make their own sets in groups but dunno if we'll have time.
Rules: http://www.hasbro.com/common/instruct/pit.pdf)
~Battleship
~Scavenger Hunt (stealing someone's idea and making it pokemon themed ^^)
~Mafia/Werewolf
~Twister (homemade spinner, outdoor version with chalk. Here's hoping for sunny days...)
~Musical chairs
~Ninja
~Guess the celebrity/character
~Relay race (w/stuff like flip cup, an egg race, maybe bobbing for apples & misc.)
~Card games (using a standard deck of playing cards)
~UNO (I've already taught it for a free class but my kids love it)
Among the games I grew up with were "penny hockey" and "paper football".  The kids really enjoy learning to them.

Thanks Mr. C!! I bet the boy students will especially like those games.

Also, FINALLY classes are all finished! Field trip tomorrow (albeit starting at 6:30am  :cry: totally passing out on the bus) and then the rest of the week I can prep for camp!!

Just stop, and think for a moment, about how Lil B loves you. There. You're having a better day. Thanks, Lil B!

In 2 weeks time I will be HOME sweet home in Canada for a visit. Cannot wait. A bit sad the time I am home is so short though.

The weather is really cool looking where I am now. There are these tall storm clouds right next to crazy blue skies. The best part is the pressure changes are getting me some sorely needed wind. All in all a pretty good last day of the semester I think.

Today the students did video recording speeches, which is an evaluation we have once a month where they have to memorize a speech and be recorded saying it. There was one girl in my class that I have been teaching since I've got here that always fails; she doesn't even try. Well I worked really hard with her this semester, even tutoring her during my break times, and today we had the speech and she got a 98! I am so proud of her! And today, I actually feel like I've made a difference, even if just a small one, as a teacher here in Korea. Plus it's Friday, woo hoo!

Survived the first day of camp!

Dancing went fairly well with about half the students (basically the ones I expected would enjoy dancing and the rest I knew would at least go along with it just out of obedience) and Zombie Dice went over so well that they kept asking to play longer ^^

I should have had the foresight to realize that the boys would get really into the game-- they were screaming "Shotgun!! SHOTGUN!!" in the hopes that someone would lose all his/her points.  :laugh: :laugh: Thank goodness nobody at the school other than my coT really speaks much English hahahah.
