I just figured out who someone on Waygook is in RL and I did a slow laugh. Somewhat like a slow clap. Wow.

I think I am in shock. I can no longer look at him without a bit of a lip snarl. Also I just commented on a thread and then it magically disappeared.

Is it me? Do you know me? Aw man, don't tell everyone what a douche I am online   :sad:

 :P :P

I told one of my friends that I am CO2 and she said, "Hahaha, yeah, I can see that."

Finding that kind of thing out is truly magical :)

Haha I know two people on waygook. One is the same IRL as he is on waygook: toxic, sad, hates everthing because he hates himself, etc.. I almost feel sorry for the guy
The other is the very definition of a keyboard warrior. Really nice/shy guy in real life, but I've seen him bullying others on here. I just laugh because he would NEVER say things like that in person  :laugh:

Well, it looks like I'm safe: I don't actually exist in real life.  :smiley:

Standing in a subway car covered floor to ceiling with Larva characters, the Korean cartoon that takes place in a sewer and is prone to flatulence, vomit, and poop gags.

Just be happy it's not more Pororo.

Ahahahahaha...my yuhak boys came in (after the test) to complain about the voices and said EXACTLY THIS!

Today, the high school level 2 listening test was interesting as always for the voice actors they use.  Years ago, I remember the British person they used, sounded like he had a concussion or something by the way he was talking, but today they've hired one of the Sesame Street actors by the sounds of it.  His American accent was hilarious.  'You sound so enthooosiastic' 'Any interesting noooos today, honey'  Even my students came up to me after and were doing funny impressions of his accent.   :laugh:

During the tests, me and my co-teacher will play a game.  I used to do this in middle school too with other co-ts.  Before it starts we choose five random questions and pick an answer.  Usually, the one involving money, a picture etc.  Then during the test, we see who gets most right.  As one is at the front and one is at the back, we can celebrate quietly so the other notices.  The loser has to buy a cookie for the winner.  Today was 2-2.  She pulled it back on Q.18.  :-[

Thankfully, I don't have to get involved in the listening test. My classes are  just extra for them (1st), 국제 classes. So we have a separate curriculum for them. And my yuhak (2nd) kids just skip Korean and have their advanced English with me. This is when they complain about the listening tests. "Teacher the voice this time...soooo annoying" lol

Ahahahahaha...my yuhak boys came in (after the test) to complain about the voices and said EXACTLY THIS!

I like to pay attention to the ratio of American to British English speakers on it.  One thing I always highlight to my students is the 다문화 (multi-culture) families, the mum will be British and the son American.   :cheesy: How does that work?  Also yesterday there was one where the married couple were discussing what to do after retirement, he wanted to live in the country, the wife in the city, it was a real back and forth dialogue, after the test my student came to me and said they should probably get divorced, which was exactly (이혼) what I'd written on my paper.

If I have no class for the listening test, I'll listen to the 1st and 3rd grade too.  I like to find out what the examiners are looking for.

Yeah, all of this is really disappointing.

I don't see myself doing that. Part of what made it so sad was seeing all my old comments and feeling like I should have applied myself to something more productive. That on top of having to remove all signs of true productivity :-[ If I had the energy, I might delete all my other inane posts to this site, but that would hardly be productive, either...

Aslan maintains this site as a hobby. Is the maker of the new site truly committed to maintaining it or just trying to make a reactionary point?

Wow, has it grown that much already? I haven't really invested much time exploring the site.

Please don't deprive us of your inanity, it's the meaning of life some days.

I get where you're coming from, though. I'm still kind of just armchairing this whole thing right now myself.

I'll continue to pop in on waygook for the community aspect of it for as long as other users choose to be a part of that, too (also, I've learned invaluable things from the daily ramblings of folks here and there, so..), but all future plans I had for uploading material have been paused until everything stabilizes.

It probably was mostly a reactionary point, but I think she really intends to provide a useful resource site for teachers, if not for anything else because she herself is still a teacher. Maybe this whole thing will help us to create threads that focus more on teaching/learning methods and techniques rather than on the materials themselves?
