Last week, one of my best students needed somewhere to put some knitting she'd done, so asked 'Teacher, do you have an invisible plastic bag?'.  Obviously meaning, see-through.  I went off and came back with two food bags.  I gave them to her and said that if she lost one she could use the other one.

Hah, I love the creativity the kids have when trying to describe what they want or need without knowing all of the more convenient vocabulary. 

One of my recent favorites: "boom floor boom" to describe an earthquake.

Also, they usually don't remember the word for broom, and it's often describe as "floor brush" or "mop's friend" to me.

Not really a funny thing said, but just thought the situation was pretty funny.

Leaving school and there's always the same bunch of low level students milling around near the gates.

Student A: Hello!
Me: Hello :)
Student A to student B: 뭐래? (What did he say?)
A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man.

Student B:  :lipsrsealed:
Me: What's wrong?
Student A: Teacher, he stole my candy.
Me: Oh really?
Student A: Yes. We fight. He lose. Now he candy mine.
Student B:  :lipsrsealed:

Today, before the start of class, one of my students was trying to explain something to me in Korean. All I caught was something about Mafia,  a movie, a pregnant lady and a man. I assume I had a confused look on my face.
Another student, whose English is very good, says to me in English, "Is it just me? I don't even understand what he's saying and I'm fluent in Korean."  :laugh:

Funny enough, I can literally never remember what broom is in Korean, either.

That's easy. 바닥 청소 되는 큰칫솔 :rolleyes:

These days my students call it a "sweeper" in English.

Funny how that's easier to remember than "broom".
