I was talking to one of my higher level middle school boys and he says: Teacher, ask me 'how are you?'
Me: Alright, how are you?
Student: Teacher, I'm pineapple.
Me: Pineapple?
Student: Yes pineapple - I want to be a pineapple.

Then they looked proud and walked away without giving me a shot to say anything else.

It took me a second and then I started laughing and couldn't stop for a moment...

In the early days of this semester when I was still getting to know my 1st year high school students, one of them started asking me whether I had a girlfriend.  These being teenage boys and me being immature and liking to joke around with my students I answered his question and asked him about his girlfriend.  This eventually turned into a series of masturbation jokes with lots of pointing at his right hand and talking about his "girlfriend"

After class as the students are leaving this student walks up and puts his hand up to give me five. ( I'm forever giving five to these kids)  Anyhow as soon as I slap hands with him he says, " Hey why are you hitting my girlfriend?"  I nearly died.     :laugh:

Shouldn't have read this at work. I am crying right now. Seriously, that student is awesome.

Speaking test:

Question: Who do you respect the most? Why?

Student: I respect my parents. Because they lay me.
Me: Excuse me?
Student: I respect my parents. Because they lay me!
Me: Sorry I couldn't understand you.  Because why?
Student: (screaming) I respect my parents because they LAY me!
Me: OK. Really, that's not OK, but I accept your answer.

The students don't have their phones taken away in the beginning of the day so I'm constantly taking them throughout the class if they're looking at them.

I took one kid's phone and immediately spotted a kid across the room playing a game. When I took the other kid's phone a student shouted:

"Aw teacher, Double Kill!"

I ended up taking two others which led to "Triple Kill"! "Quadruple Kill!"

Today in class
Student: Teacher, today you look pretty.
Me: Just today?!
Student: Yes.
Me: Eee?! Geez, thanks.
(The student turns to his friends and they speak for a minute and then turns back to me)
Student: No teacher, every day! Every day!

Later on in class a student made an ero joke and so I corrected him and taught him the word porn.
The same student as before loudly announces - "teacher, I like porn. I really really like American porn movies."

Later on while I'm teaching class I hear yell "teacher, do you like porn?!"

The following discussion occurred the day after I had accidentally discovered and eaten gopchang at a local restaurant.

Teacher to students:  Last night I tried gopchang.  It tasted horrible.  Do you like gopchang?

Student: No, I like makchang.

Teacher: Makchang! What is makchang?

Student: Gopchang’s brother.

The 6th graders just finished giving their speech contest. During the writing process, I had to check all of their speeches for errors. One of the speeches explained how the Christmas tree is originally from Korea and that German missionaries took the idea back to Germany after they visited Korea. They even call the trees Korean Firs in Germany.

The next time I saw them I asked their source and they said many websites said this. I said it was definitely wrong as the Christmas tree was used for pagan ceremonies before even Jesus was born. They said no, people learned it wrong and that Korea started the tradition. I then said that I lived in Germany for a little bit and never heard it called by a Korean fir. They said they must have changed it. Stubborn little girls and they even lived in Canada/the U.S.A. for a few years. Needless to say but they didn't end up changing their speech.

"Teacher, why you have fur on your arms? are you bear?"

I get this. I've been here for the entire school year and I STILL get this.  They pet me too.




Anyway: I was working with my 3rd year high schoolers.  We did a lesson on superstitions last week so this week I had them create posters to teach people about superstitions.  My co made the groups and I noticed that all groups but one had at least one higher level students. 

I went to help that lower level and they were trying to figure out how to say a Korean superstition in English.

Student: "Teacher....fire *looks at translation on his phone* mischief...next day...pee."
Me:  Um...what about pee?
Student: Teacher!  Pee!  *shouts this very loudly and the whole class turns to watch*
Me: Okay, try again. 
Student: No teacher, Changee - new 'stition. *waved at me to go away so they can come up with a new idea*

They finally did come up with one and surprisingly their grammar was spot on - and I knew they weren't just copying their phones because I saw the translation on the phone and it was wrong so they had to re-work it so that it actually made sense.  Good for them!

I was sitting at my desk during the break. While I was looking out the window, one of my 5th grade Elementary boys reached down the back of my shirt.  I turned around to see the entire class watching him do this.

Me: What are you doing?!
Another Student: Teacher. Face black. Arms black. No shirt, no pants.  Black??
Me: Yes, all black. (While trying to hold back from laughing)

They still tried to check for the rest of that week.

I was talking to one of my higher level middle school boys and he says: Teacher, ask me 'how are you?'
Me: Alright, how are you?
Student: Teacher, I'm pineapple.
Me: Pineapple?
Student: Yes pineapple - I want to be a pineapple.

Then they looked proud and walked away without giving me a shot to say anything else.

It took me a second and then I started laughing and couldn't stop for a moment...

I don't get it. What did he mean to say instead of "pineapple"?

Pretty sure he was making a joke. "I'm fine--> I'm PINEapple."

+100 points for the middle school kid.
I felt sorry for myself because I had no shoes-- until I met a man with no feet.

One told me that she was eating lots of cherries to get bigger boobs.  :laugh: I told he it would not work and she became annoyed and said I should know about these things.  Everyone was laughing, finally another student shouted out "It's DNA, you idiot" and everyone shut up.

Hahaha that is awesome. My favorite post yet.
