Class starts Monday (although my actual teaching starts Tuesday), it's Wednesday and I still haven't met my new co-teacher.

Jesus. They are supposed to be coming in today.

I have zero motivation to do anything to prepare. At all.

My second school they changed up the ENTIRE staff except me and the gym teacher (private school turns public...everyone has to go).

Not met a single person and school starts Monday   :laugh:

It's like a ghost town here. 

There was one day last week where all the new teachers arrived and everyone was running around like blue-arsed flies.  Haven't seen anyone since  :laugh:

I toured my new main school, but have yet to even see my new second school. Co-teacher's been gone for ages, and I have no idea what they want in terms of lesson plans.

Just gonna give them the "nobody told me" excuse and carry on.

This is going to be my anthem this year! Last year (1st year) I stressed about stuff for no reason. Found out a lot of things about the staff and school and now I have no fear  :laugh:

omg... so you even haven't had a meeting with the English department or Subject Coordinator yet?
What on earth is going on there? Why is everything done in such an unprofessional way?
You guys are the most important asset the Eng. dept. has so why don't they work together with you? :shocked:

Now that you mention it, Korean English education is circling my brain.

Test time is coming in middle schools, and my co-workers are bringing me their questions to check them over for trouble.

The questions are awful.

They expect students to notice tiny, nitpicky grammar details in sentences that are already grammatically incorrect in far more obvious ways. On top of that, many of the questions are so ambiguous, I can't understand them until they explain that "that" is a conjunction in this sentence, and a relative pronoun in these other sentences, therefore that one is different and the correct answer!

Never mind that these students can barely write a coherent paragraph, they're supposed to be able to discern between a digression and a paranthetical statement. They're dismantling a concrete wall with a scalpel and tweezers instead of a sledgehammer.

It is literally the most inefficient method of learning a language I can imagine short of reading a dictionary.



It's funny because Koreans pour astronomical amount of money into English education. And they got results like this  :-[   I seriously think Koreans should not make any English exam questions. But who cares, I guess their English exams are for Koreans only.

I just want to pack in and leave.. One more thing that grinds my gear is that Koreans like to use English on cyber world and spread their .. existence. Korean people are virtually on every internet site, and they are always forming a crowd to manipulate people. To make people think their opinion is the norm. Not that other races do the same thing, though. On the internet, everyone is of hive mind and it can't be other way. Many of many different people on the internet are actually same persons.

Anyway, you need to either learn another language or stop using internet to avoid Koreans nowadays. *packs my clothes*

I stayed up too late last night, I'm not at all prepared for today.

But I've got my classroom back. :)

Meanwhile, I still haven't been provided with my new schedule. I hope this means I don't have to worry about classes this week.

Get home, open the box, sweetcorn on my pizza.

Although we do have corn on pizza in the UK, I'm not bothered about it in Korea personally. Corn is meh for me.

I have more problems with PINEAPPLE ON PIZZA  :huh: :cry: :evil: :blank:

Seriously worst thing ever!

Pineapple pizza is the best pizza! Hawaiian pizza fo' life!

Which would you rather eat, a banana pizza, or a pickle pizza?

And yes, you could pick off the toppings, but the juices will still be there.

I can't stand sweet toppings on my pizzas, so pickles for me.

But in my mind, there isn't a fruit worse than bananas to be used as a pizza topping.

Pickle for sure. Especially if they were like, Polish dills, or some other sour, not-sweet pickle.

Although, I think you could make a case for like a banana peanut butter 'pizza' but I think it'd just be another food that was shaped like a pizza. I don't think you could really call something with banana on it a pizza.

I've had dessert pizza with banana.

In the late 90s/early2000s a bunch of "gourmet pizza" restaurants popped up. There was for sure a pizza with banana on it. Like, chicken, banana and cranberry or something.
