when talking with coteachers about going to daegu for the weekend from gwangju:

"daegu and  gwangju don't have many communications"

O_o i figure it means either 1) people don't often travel between the two cities or 2) people from the two cities don't like each other....

It means that the (older) people in the two provinces have a semi-feud with one another - they don't get aloong with each other although I can't remember why.

Its because Daegu stole a bunch of vowels from Gwangju...

I'm not sure if this even counts because I was the one who misunderstood, but still.... As we were waiting in the Dr.'s office there was a T.V. program on, a woman with 3 dogs was showing her house and then cooking a meal.
 
"CT: She is famous actor. She is cooking Korean Chicken soup, only she is using dug instead.
Me: ... She's what???
CT: She is using dug!
Me: She's using what??
CT: Dug! Dug! She is using Dug!
Me: (sitting there silently horrified, then after several minutes pass) OH! DUCK!"

My coteacher then stared at me for several minutes as if I'd lost my mind.

I used to regularly have this problem with regards to Ddok.


Also a brief conversation with one high school student today:

Me: I am going to Busan on Saturday
Her: Oh! To do What?
Me: I will meet a friend and we will have dinner and coffee (didn't want to say alcohol).
Her: And Boobies?
Me: What?!
Her: Moobies, You watch a Moobie.
Me: Ah I see, err maybe Yes.

My director once told me, "You eat so small food, and yet you is quite fat. So, I ask my brother-in-law because he is a pharmacist and oriental doctor. He told me that you are a rhino."

Me: "a r-r-rhino?!"

Director: "Yes, the rhino only eats small grass and yet he cannot lose weight".

Me: "?!"

Director: "Even when he diets a lot".

Me: "Bah ha ha! Director! PLEASE don't tell any more foreign women they are like a rhino".  :o

Hahaha! I love your coteacher. I wish that one of my coteachers would randomly sprout curses at me then walk away nonchalantly.

I am a Gyoppo (sp?) male and when I first arrived my Co-teacher looked at me and said, "Oh, I am so disappointed that you are not a beautiful blonde girl, ha ha, I am only joking please get in the cab."  Then his face turned bright red and he did not talk to me for the rest of the cab ride.  Turns out he's a great guy but he wanted to open with a joke and had been trying to figure one out.  I told him that his delivery left something to be desired.  Shortly after that I then had to explain the phrase "left something to be desired" to him.

My bf had a good story from his school the other day, a few kids were asking him to follow them and they were yelling "Teacher! Come on my face!" in the hallway...

 :laugh: When things like this happen, I'm always reminded of the "phrasing!" scenes from Archer.

My co-teacher created a game for the "Do You Want Some More?" lesson in the book, where kids would close their eyes and request a cup with a snack in it. Then he'd ask if they want some more, they'd say yes/no, and they'd have to identify what they wanted.

So round one, this girl comes up to the front and says "Can I have some cup 1 please?" and my co-teacher says "Okay, close your eyes and I'll put it in your mouth."

Yesterday, my coteacher said to me, "Teacher, it's time."
Me, blinking in confusion from the comfort of my desk: "Time for what?"
CT: "Time for the interview."
Me: "What interview?"
CT: "The student interview."
Me: "....Huh?"
CT: "Go to the room. I will send the student."
Me: "Ok....then what happens?"
CT: "Just do the interview."
Me: "I don't understand."
It was a really (painfully) long time before they finally conveyed to me that we would interview the students by asking them 3 questions and using their responses to place them into different English levels.

These are hilarious!  Probably the most awkward one for me so far was when I was introduced to all of the other teachers.  I was introduced to the men first, so every time one of the men said something, my co-teacher said "He wants to intimate with you."  :o

It wasn't until what the women were saying was being translated as "She wants to intimate with you" that I realized it just meant they wanted to get to know me.  What a relief!  XD

My co-teacher was walking around checking to make sure the students had included punctuation in their dictation exercise. First she looked at the boys. Then she went to the other side of the classroom and shouted out, "Girls! Don't miss your periods!"

My Vice Principle came up with a classic the other day.
I was talking in English to one of the homeroom teachers, when he walks past and asks "Why? she no speak English well."
(She's actually pretty good, much better than my VP who knows almost nothing)
The 2 Korean teachers then start arguing over who speaks better English and the VP says in the thickest Konglish:

"I suh-peek-uh eng-guh-li-shee very well. Becaus-suh I'm f-lom Iteawon."

That just cracked me up. Any time I hear the words, "As you know..." coming from a colleague's mouth, it's almost certainly going to be something that I definitely didn't know.

"As you know, the teacher business trip is tomorrow." Nope, first I've heard of it.
In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

We are not "guests" in Korea. Korea didn't invite us over for Pimms in the garden. We are paid employees.

Me: Oh thanks, thats so nice, I'll wear them now.
KT: Yes they look much better, those ones (points at the earrings I was wearing) look terrible.
