Boy A: "What are you going to do this weekend?"
Boy B: "Nothing special."
Boy A: "Why don't we go to sleep together?"
Boy B: "Sounds good!"

As I tried to stifle a snort, I made eye contact with one of the higher level students who just smiled knowingly... though I think the implication went over most of the heads in class.

Oh, they knew exactly what they were saying............

There's also the one where they go...

Student A: "Would you like to come to my house and eat ramyeon??"
Student B: "Sounds good!"

With the amount of uncontrolled giggling that occurred, you didn't need to know anything about Korean culture/slang to know EXACTLY what that meant in Korea.

Is it like the equivalent of what "netflix and chill" turned into?

Pretty sure it's been around longer considerably longer than netflix and chilling.

Just clarifying the meaning with what I thought would be a similar idiom.  :wink:
How old is ramen anyway? Now I've got to look that up.

Today the last question in a game based on the phrase "What kind of...?", I asked "What kind of monster did Harry Potter fight in the second book?"

My students mostly answered correctly, but after class I got some more interesting answers (I generally allow my students to argue for their answers, and although it was too late, they wanted to try for fun, anyway).
- "Voldemort right! Basilisk was a horcrux!"
- "He killed spiders with Ron's car."
- "He beat the Slytherins in Quidditch." ("Are they monsters?") "Yes, teacher!"
- "MRS. NORRIS WAS THE REAL MONSTER"

(2nd grade middle school boys, in case that influences your image of this scene)

Diarrhea was the most popular word with my 6th graders last year. They would use it every chance they get.

"How was your lunch?"
"Terrible! It gave me diarrhea!"

"in Korea, you can't get married if you don't have a car".

My (former) brother-in-law told me this... when I was married to his sister despite not having a car.

Not something a student said, but still funny. The 6th graders had a CPR class, and they all practiced on those medical dummies. One boy was so enthusiastically doing chest compressions that he hurt his neck, and now he has to wear a neck brace for a couple days.

Teaching students expressions to use in a restaurant.
Reviewing the expression 'enjoy your meal' after a 45 minute speaking class.

T: So, how can you say '맛있게 드세요' in English?
Ss: ...
T: Enjoy your ...
S: Face!
T:  :huh: ...  :laugh:

We just finished the "Can you come to my party?" lesson, so we had the students create invitations. Most of the kids did pajama party, birthday party, or other generic things. This kid (who always says he's "terrible") wrote this:

Can you come to my Hell party?
The party is on July 5th.
Come to hell at 2:00.
Well if you come to hell you canít return to your home forever.
You can do it whatever.
But thereís no food.
So you must eat people.
Survive in the hell and become the strongest human in hell.

The only interesting answer from speaking tests this year:

Me: I'm thinking of visiting North Korea this year.
Student: No, that's not a good idea.
Me: Why do you think so?
Student: I want you to live.

"Do you know about Hitler?"

"Teacher, what's your dream?"

One kid was enamored with the word poo so every chance he got he would be like "teacher.... poo." Always caught me off guard with that shit.
