Another one that happened today, not really hilarious but warms your heart.

I give Candy Canes for Christmas to all of the students at my school (even the ones I do not teach).  I went into the Special Education room and was giving them their candy.  And the following happened:

S1: Teacher, why?
Me: Christmas Candy
S2 (no English ability at all):  We wish you a Merry Christmas, We wish you a Merry Christmas...

He sand the entire song to me.  It was so sweet.

Couple of my 6th grade girl students come to see me during lunch to hang out in my empty unused classroom.  Another little one (the sweetest child ever), also comes (alone) to practice her English.

On both occasions these children have put me in their confidences...lol

S1:travelinpants teacher, can you keep a secret?
Me: yes, what?
S1: I hate ________teacher. (My CT's name)
S2: Yes, she's very mean.
S1: horrible. (She shudders)
Me: (successfully wearing my poker face) I'm sorry you feel that. (Meanwhile I want to agree so bad.) their class is the worst behaved 6th grade so I instead told them maybe they should ask their classmates to behave more respectfully and she won't seem mean, though I doubt it.

Second little girl comes to practice and says this:
S1:travelinpants teacher, you know _______teacher? (My Ct again)
Me: Yes, of course.
S1: secret okay?
Me: okay.
S1: I'm scared of her. I don't like her. She looks like this: (child proceeds to open eyes wide and makes devil horns)
Me: I'm sorry you're scared of her.
The really sad part is my CT is mean to that child because of her attachment to me.

My last class one evening had just two middle school boys, who are close friends.

It was one boy's last day at the hogwan.

At the end of class, as they were getting ready to go, the other boy said to his friend that was leaving:

"I will remember this moment for all eternity.
My tears will be lost in the rain.
You are the queen of my heart."

Random things my elementary students yelled out last week:

3rd grade boy: "Lamborghini!"

2nd grade girl: "E.T. phone home!"

Practicing the expression 'Let me _____ for you' with 3rd grade middle school students...

Me: I donít have enough money to pay for lunch! Can you please help me?
Student: Let me sell fake medicine to make money for you.
Me: Ok... Why would you sell fake medicine?
Student: This is traditional Korean culture.

3rd grade elementary. They finished their books and lessons in early December so, now we're just showing movies. I know bad teacher. On the upside my CT thinks they're better off without Korean subtitles so they are actually watching only in English. Anyway they were watching  a animated movie and then two of the characters kiss and in the middle of their silence I hear,"my eyes are breaking!!!" LOL

'Teacher! ISIS!'

During a slideshow that featured a photo of me in a Mosque wearing headscarf.


I guess that one's kind of sad

From a stint in a hagwon last year. When asked to use a room name and a verb in the present continuous in a sentence Luke replied: "He's dying in the living room."

Hah!  So meta. 

My kids never say anything funny.  Great kids making for boring stories?

During a game of sleeping elephants, the sentence was "Da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa."

One group of students wrote "Da bitch painted the Mona Lisa."
After some shock, I told them to check their spelling. They changed it to "The bitch painted the Mona Lisa."  :lipsrsealed:

hahaha. not something my students said, but it reminded me of this: the other day i'm walking passed this store in my city that sells glasses, contact lenses, etc. called 'Davichi'. i think it's a chain.

so anyway i'm walking passed and they start blasting out their theme song from the speakers outside the store, which is "Vichi, vichi, vichi, Davichi."

except the song was sung by a Korean so with the way Koreans tend to pronounce 'v' as 'b' you can imagine what it actually sounded like  :laugh:

I told a 3rd grade student to do something and he stops, glares at me, and yells "NO! You are a foreigner."

I'm not particularly surprised but anymore...

I used a video that had another bearded white teacher.

The kids all said it was me even after hearing the dude speak.

For a slide on a game showcasing the phrase "That's too bad", I put some random black guy with his hand over his mouth in concern.

The kids all started saying it was Obama.

Slide show showing a town.

Click for next slide. Animation has the town falling off the screen (top to bottom).

I was just "aaaa earthquake."

One kid yells "TEACHER! NEPAL!!! NEPAL!!"

Too soon, Too soon... I still laughed though.

Grade 3, Unit 5 How many?

One of the key terms is "Welcome." One of the girls sang Welcome to the Jungle by GnR when she did her speaking test. Blew my mind. I asked her how she knew that song and she just said "Older brother."

Another one of students said that our Alphabet song sounds a lot like Champagne Supernova by Oasis and then asked if I knew who Oasis was.

Unreal.
