Fun miscommunications with a student.
« on: October 21, 2012, 11:50:25 pm »
On thursday I have an adult class consisting of a husband and wife. Their English level us a little low but they are both very nice people and I enjoy our classes together.

On Thursday we awere doing a class on directions and how to find a location and I gave the following homework.

If I had a friend coming to Seoul next week, recommend me a place to take them, tell me why it is a good place and tell me how to get there.


Well yesterday I got an email from the husband telling me that he recommends the Insadong tour and has booked tickets for me, my friend and his family to go on it together.


I think Tuesday's class is going to centre around the phrase 'hypothetically' :)

About miscommunication... I once gave a primary school kid a handout and told him to take it to the secretary and ask her to make 2 copies. After a few minutes, the kid returned with the handout and 2 coffees.

hahaha that's great!!!  :laugh:

On Tuesday, I was joking with my 5th grade students saying something about giving me chocolate. Thursday, I received 20 chocolate bars when the students walk into class:) I told them that I was joking but I will take the chocolate as prizes for other students.

I once gave students an assignment in which they had to give someone directions to different landmarks. Once of them gave the following instructions: "Use the navigation."

LOL

That happened to me on a weekly basis at my hakwon.  I'd tell the secretary that the copy machine is broken and she'd go straight for the coffee machine.
