I was asking my class what they want to be when they grow up.

I swore blind that a young girl said she wanted to be Harry Potter. Only after repeating a couple of times, and a lot of laughing, did it become clear that she wanted to be 'a reporter'.

My co uses 'sweat'.. instead of 'sweet' until she caught on that i was saying it differently..

She also wondered why i would look at her strange when she kept talking about a 'bowel' and a spoon in one of the 5th grade classes.

And when a kid farted, she came out with "who cut the cheese?". I nearly fell over backwards with laughter when i heard her say that!  :laugh:


I may be to blame... I teach them "Who cut the cheese?" whenever someone farts. They love it.

South Africans will probably understand this one :

My coteacher once took a bite from a cookie and went : 'hmmmm, lekker!'

Ive mentioned one or two Afrikaans words to her before, never thought she would remember them!

She has also used 'sommer' in several sentences...and we all know sommer fits in everywhere! :P

Oh my just realized I might single handedly bring down my schools whole English department with my foreign tongue!

Lekker jy!!!

At a very uncomfortable winter camp staff dinner;

Principal looks at fellow native teacher, 'You, S-line. Good. Yes'
Turns to look at me, 'You, good face. No photoshop'

Ummmm, thanks?? Most random compliment I've ever had... :laugh:

Earlier today a co-teacher asked me to explain the phrase "Holy crap on a cracker." I have no idea where she heard it as it's something I've never said.

From a student who has drawn a face on his pencil case and named it:

"His name is Foo. He American, because he has blue eyes and green hair."

Last year I was teaching my 6th graders about daily routines.  I was telling them my morning routine where I said I take a shower, talk on the phone with my mom then eat some kind of fruit, usually an apple, for breakfast...

...a silence overcomes the class.  Then one student says, "You are not fat." 

...then another said, "Chubby.  Just chubby."

I almost died of laughter.  I was also pleased to know I'm not fat.  LOL

This could be from the American TV show, Big Bang Theory.  It was quite popular at one of my hogwans a year or so ago, and my Korean wife also loves the show.  I know that in at least one episode, Penny says that phrase twice.

My wife was pregnant during her last contract at her school. Her principal, who spoke almost no English, managed to ask, "You want son or daughter?" My wife replied, "Either one is great!" He scurried out of the teacher's office and came back a couple of minutes later with a persimmon with a large phallic protrusion sticking out of it. "I hope you have a son!" he said. "Uh, thanks?!" I don't know if we were supposed to eat it, but we had a daughter.

My male coteacher said to me one day
"2 things on a woman bounce when she runs.
1 thing on a man bounces when he runs.
What is it?" 

And I could only think of one thing....  and the more I thought "don't say penis"  the more I could only think 'penis' and I guess my eyes got bigger and bigger and finally he said something eluding to me being a pervert and said "A TIE".

I've since learned that that is a somewhat common Korean joke.  In case you weren't sure about what bounces on the woman - it's earings.

My co teachers once asked, 'Where would you like to go for your honeymoon?'

I replied, 'I'm not sure, somewhere nice, chilled and exotic, like Madagascar'.

She said 'Is that a place, I thought it was a movie.'

My CT and I were discussing American TV shows and we started talking about Dexter versus Supernatural. She refuses to watch Supernatural and I asked her why she would watch Dexter and not Supernatural. Very blase, she said, "Oh, it's only people being killed."

If an English-speaker had walked by right then without context! XDDD

A student comment from just now.

Girl holding a Harry Potter book: "teacher your face..."
Me: "Yes?"
Girl: "Harry Potter friend... Ron Weaseley."
Me: *laughs* "Oh yes I am a ginger..."
Girl: "I know... you have no soul."

Lunch conversation with a male co-teacher:

He: I have just finished watching the first season of "Friends."  I like it very much!  Do you like "Friends"?
Me: I never really watched it much, probably the only person I know who didn't.  I guess I like sci-fi and fantasy shows more.
He: I think these are shows boys usually like.
Me: Well, maybe... I also like detective shows like NCIS, CSI, Law and Order... [and anything by Joss Whedon; intelligent shows, though I didn't add that]
He: Yes, I think these are more boys' shows... You like Harry Potter?
Me: Yeah, Harry Potter's pretty cool.
He: I think you look like him, Harry Potter.
Me: Ah-ha-ha-haaaa....  ...  :(  [great....]

Talking about my evaluation form.

ME: What does this general health section mean?
Co-teacher: It means no smoking, cigarettes, or heroin.

These funny comments really made my day!

Once I told a co-teacher I was going to buy fruit at Lottemart... ( I'm South African) ... She asked me "Are you going to buy...what's the name of the fruit that poor people eat in Africa instead of food?".
lol, I cracked up.. I was like,I don't know, fruit is much cheaper in South Africa, but we eat normal food too :)

Maybe she means yams? They're used worldwide as a meal staple...maybe she thinks it's a replacement for protein, or "real food." Haha!

(Holding a poster)
Female co-T: Do you have a rubber I can borrow?
Me: Umm... what was that?

I then explained she meant rubber band, and because she's pretty cool I explained the "other" meaning so she doesn't find herself in a sticky situation. It was good fun.
