Today we were giving candy out with the lesson "Can I have some water." Here's one dialog:

Ss: Can I have some candy?
Me: How many pieces of candy?
Ss: Ummmm...10.
Me: Why? (they had to give one reason per piece of candy. Most students could only think of 2-3 reasons)
Ss: You are beautiful like Miss USA and Park Teacher beautiful like Miss Korea.
My CT: He has a good point, but it's still only two reasons.

Student to another student: "SHUT UP!"
Me: "That is not a nice thing to say to someone!"
Student to this student then says: "BE QUIET!"  :laugh:

Student; Beth Teacher your name is easy to remember and say because Beth is short for Bathroom isn't it?

"Teacher eyes colour my dog same same."
"What? My eyes are the same colour as your dog's?"
"Yes yes yes!"
"Great."
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.

A group of grade 6 boys just ran into my classroom to ask me to explain the word "seek" to them.

"Um, look? Look for?"

Blank stares.

"Uh, find? You know, like hide and seek?"

They all broke out into huge grins.

"Ah, teacha! So smart! High five teacha!"

"Teacha, your brain....Very good job!"

A group of my 5th Grade boys said to me last Monday,

"Teacher you are giraffe."
Me: "oh because I am tall?"
Them: "No, No!!!!"
They proceeded to draw a giraffe and pointed to the neck.
"Teacher, giraffe same, same."
Me: "Oh because I have a long neck?" (Which I don't by the way...)
Them: "No No!!!!"
Then they pointed to my eyes.......
Me: "Oh I have big eyes like a giraffe?" (by this stage I was completely confused!!!)
Them: "No No!!!"
Then they grabbed their eye lashes and said "Teacher giraffe same same, eyes."

Then....CLICK!!! I had had eyelash extensions put on in the weekend and they thought I looked like a giraffe because of my long eyelashes!!!!!

Frustrating but a great comparison I thought :-)

One of my male fifth grade students favoured me with a blast of the chorus of Electrix Six's song, 'Gay Bar'.  You can find the video on youtube, though I wouldn't advise watching it at work.

It was by a pretty long way the least likely thing I ever expected to hear come from one of my students.

I was once asked right in the middle of explaining 'twisted' to some 4th graders when I heard, "Teacher, are you on team Edward of Jacob?"

This was, naturally, out of the blue.  I even checked her desk to make sure she wasn't reading in class.  No Stephanie Meyer (or however she spells her name) to be found.

We were studying types of dancing a few weeks ago and so I asked one of my students "what's your favorite type of dancing?" Student replied "pole dancing teacher"! Too funny nearly fell off my chair laughing, he's only 11.

when my high school students pass me in the hall they say 'hi hi hi hi hi teacha'.

that, or very nonchalantly inform me that 'bye bye bye, he die, i kill him. die die die.' and that they are off to murder a friend.

One girl came to me recently and said, "Teacher!  Good news!"  I said, 'Oh, yeah?  What?"  She said, "It's my birthday on June 18th."  Hehehehehe.... good news!  Love it!

1st grade elementary school class: I show a picture of a library.
Me: What's this?
Student: It's a 도서관.
Me: OK, but . . . in English?
Student: It's a "in-English."
-----
6th grade boy trying to decide between "I go home from school at 3" or "I come home from school at 3":
Boy: Which is better?
Me: You choose.
Boy: I choose come, because I love come.
-----
This one was from one of my Korean friends rather than a student, but it's too funny not to include.
Woman: I hate the Jews.  Jews are boring.  I like bitches.  It's fun to lie on a bitch.
Me (after faking a coughing fit to hide my laughter): Uh, the pronunciations you want here are "zoo" and "beach."

"Oh yeah man!  What's up, yo?!  Yeah G!"  [waves arms about in what I think was supposed to be gangster fashion?!]

"Oh, sexshi lighting!"  [after I turned on the lights at the front of the room]

"Oh, sexshi bideo!" [after I tell students we will watch a short video clip]

"Oh my God!" [pause] "Oh my mother!  Oh my father, oh my brother. oh my sister, oh my grandfather, oh my uncle... (etc. with various other family members)" [said every time after anyone says "Oh my God!"  Continues for any amount of time]

The above was all one student, haha.  She's very outgoing  :P

From another student: "Teacher!  Hwa jang sil!  Brown!  Not yellow, brown!"    :laugh:

A friend who teaches at a hogwan told me that she had been teaching names for jobs, including astronaut and acupuncture doctor.  One student mixed up that two and loudly proclaimed that he wanted to be an ass-puncture.  I don't think that is a job.

Today in one of my 6th grade elementary classes, a boy was fidgeting and dancing around near my desk before the last bell rang.
"Hi. how are you?" I asked.
"I'm good. Berry Berry Good. Teacha I hafta....." and this point the student forgets the word for pee or bathroom.  He looks around frantically for some help, his friends won't help him.  He then gives up, grabs himself(yes grabbed his groin) and then pretends he is putting out a fire- using noises and all!
"Yes you may go to the bathroom!" I respond and the kid runs out of class like a bat out of h**l. 

I of course cracked up because the kid knew the English but had to pee so bad he couldn't think! 

When he came back to class a couple minutes later, he did ask me properly if he could go to the bathroom,

pretty funny...a couple of years back, i had a student interrupt my class to tell me:

"Teacher, five grade...you angel. Six grade...you devil!"

made me chuckle...referring to the combination of higher expectation levels for my 6th graders due to them having me for their 5th grade year already..and also the natural need to be a bit more strict with 6th graders due to their new found motivation to do nothing...

also had a 5th grader on the 1st day of school this semester profess her undying love for me in a two page letter that i have taped to my wall above my desk...it's all in Korean...but it's pretty darn funny...especially since i had NEVER had this student before and had no idea who she was...basically the gist of it is she is madly in love with me...thinks about me all of the time...when she sees me her heart skips a beat and she gets nervous...she is incredibly saddened by the fact that we can never be together because of our age gap...but she wanted me to know her true feelings...and she would settle for the consolation prize of me teaching her English...because she wants to speak English fluently so that she can communicate with me everyday...(note: this girl is at about a Level 0 English level)...

I played a game with my students where they had to have one person use English to describe one of eight food cards without saying the actual word to their fellow small group members who couldn't see the card. The other students were made to guess which of the eight cards the student was describing. When having to give a clue to other students as to what card a 6th grade student was holding, she yelled"bread friend!" Somehow all of the students knew that she meant Milk. Then when she had to describe the bread card she yelled "Milk Friend!" Awesome.
