My teachers brought in a birthday cake and candles for me a couple of weeks ago. Before I was even finished blowing out the candles:

Co: "Did you wish for a husband?"
Me: "No"
Co: "Oh, well then you wished to meet a nice guy."
Me: "Uh, no, not really."
Co gives me a look of utter disgust and confusion, then walks away.

My co-teacher has a good sense of humor, and her English level is high, but she makes some typical pronunciation mistakes sometimes.

Situation 1: Talking about the movie "Eat, Pray Love."
CT: You should see "Eat, Play, Love." Oops! I mean "Eat, Pray Love." Not "Eat, Play, Love." That's a totally different movie!
Me: Yeah, that's a porno.


Situation 2: Reviewing a memory game that could be played alone, if one were so inclined.
CT 1: (Looking over game)
CT 2: It's a good system. Playing with one's self.

Not many points for the co teacher there and they will have to try harder.

You were hilarious though :)

Okay, so I was having my students choose songs for our after school singing contest. So, I am calling the students by their names and I am writing down the song titles, "Alejandro," "You Lift Me Up,"  "F@#^ You!." All the students gasp, some start to laugh and I am totally shocked. The girl students thinks I have misunderstood her, and begins to shout the title 5 more times before she realizes that I have no idea that's a song and I think she is cursing me out. She then quickly starts shouting "no, no, song is Lily Allen song, not bad word. Please teacher, F@#^ You!!! I wanna sing F@#^ You!!"  :laugh: I politely told her she couldn't sing the song and the other after school kids promptly agreed.  :laugh:

its when my teachers say Focus and it comes out F**k us"
or when they say take out a sheet ( pf paper) and it comes out like s**t

Those 2 always make me laugh.

Last week one of my good kids walked in with a shirt that had Kermit the Frog on it, and above it it said "Pig F**ker" I nearly lost my junk when I saw it, kids couldnt understand why I couldnt stop laughing

I was an hour late this morning. I mis-programmed my alarm clock for the second time and missed a class for the kids in the teaching competition. Anyway it seemed not to matter. One of the naughtiest kids in the middle school comes to my teacher and after a long conversation heads off with his punishment.

Me: Is he in trouble?
Teacher: Yes
Me: I saw him on the weekend in town.
Teacher (laughing): Yes, he must have gone to the piss house.
Me: (Smiling and leaving) (Then, thinking to myself? What? No. Couldn't be? Yes!, oh. Touche)

Amazing what can be slipped through translation. Teacher 1 - Redvers 0

My school has many phrases and quotes plastered all over the hallway, including:

"a dog is wiser than a woman. a dog doesn't bark at its master."

Haha! I have this one in my classroom too!

me: Mrs. X, will you and the other teachers come over to my house tomorrow? I just wanted to double check with you.
ct : Yes. Is there a problem? If there is a problem, TELL ME!!!
me: Oh no, there is no problem.
me: (I was not sure if i was supposed to buy food or not) I am planning on buying 1 pizza and 1 chicken. Will that be enough?
ct: ( Co-teacher trying to use "you'd better" from our previous lesson) You'd better buy 2 pizza and 1 chicken!

As a Korean-American, I understand literally what she is saying if she said it in korean, but it sounded so aggressive and demanding. It is even funnier because my co-teacher is really sweet and soft spoken.  :laugh:

CT: They want to know if you want to be a mento for the new teachers.
Me: A mento?
CT: You know, mento and mentee?
Me: Oh! A mentor!

I couldn't stop laughing because it reminded me of a scene from friends. Youtube 'Joey mento' if you're curious.


Me: I can't wait to see your baby girl. I bet she's beautiful.
CT: Come visit but don't expect too much about the face.
Me: ...

My co-teacher informed me that my lesson failed yesterday because it was difficult for the students to speak in English. wasn't quite sure what to say to that -_-

(note: not that the English *I* used was too difficult- I made sure it wasn't- I guess I'll just have to teach all my english classes such that the students can speak in korean from now on...)

I was on a teacher's only field trip and we were all drinking and doing the norae bong bus ride thing, which was great. They were all singing Korean songs and I thought I was in the clear until the Principle called me up to pick/sing the next song. After I was finished putting my thang down everybody clapped and cheered and then the Principle said something into the microphone for everyone to hear. All of the teachers started pissing themselves. Then the Principle looked at my confused expression and said, " You. Umm. No gift!"

At least they'll never ask me to sing again!

I asked a coteacher about her experience of living with a host family while studying education and English in NY.  She told me, "I don't know about the family life in America.  The host person I stayed with was old and had a few cats.  But I think now a cat is dead, that's their only family but I think its dead."  I shook my head trying not to laugh so hard.
I'm not a vlogger or blogger, so I make videos of things I do in and around school and Korea.

I asked the school secretary to recommend a local gynocologist bc I was due for a regular check-up.  The follow-up:

Her: Did you go to the women's doctor to check your body?
Me: Oh yes, I did.  Thanks again for your help.
Her: Was there any...any...problem?
Me: Um...no...it was just a regular check-up...

... in my head I'm like, as if I'd tell you if I have any issues with my genitalia.  I know she meant well, but I was still a bit like, huh?!?
