What you put into Korea, is what you will get out of Korea; it will not spoon feed you.

When your CT ask how to say/teach something in English, you tell them how, they say well in Korean it's this way, and on naver I heard blah blah..

Well... that's wrong, if you say it that way its wrong...

Okay~

Class: She teaches it the wrong way anyway....

When your co-teacher translates your non-American English in to American English, but no one can understand her.

Hot6, story of my life.

When your old co teacher who couldnt speak a lick of English leaves and you were promised a shiny new English-speaking replacement.

Said replacement turns up, you say ''nice to meet you'' and he doesn't understand.

Is it friday yet? :cry:

When you get dragged to morning meetings because "all teachers must go".

And then get surprised looks for being there because they didn't account for you, and you're taking another teacher's seat...

I'll just....hide over here...  :lipsrsealed:

You could have my co-teacher where the classes don't even listen to her.

When you show up to work early to fix up your PPT and add a few things to your lesson (cuz you factory reset your comp and no longer have MS PPT) and find out that classes will start 30 mins early!

Or you're told that your KET is leaving after the first semester and will be replaced with a new English teacher. About two weeks into the new semester, the KET is still here and the person they hired to replace him turned down the offer, so they keep interrupting your class to have 10 min. mock lessons done by the applicants...

When all you have in your fridge for breakfast is an unlimited supply of cucumber pickles.  :sad:

This sounds like it could be strangely entertaining.

That could have been fun. I did not think of that.

Oh well, the applicant that turned them down has changed her mind, so no mock lessons in class. I found out about halfway through class. My co kept leaving to go check when they would be coming for it, so that's how we found out.

I sound like an inconsiderate human, but nonetheless.

Please, please ask me if I want to be included in a food order for lunch. School isn't in session yet, so there's no cafeteria food right now, which means I can go home for lunch, or go to my favorite kimbap place, or meet a friend for burgers, but instead, I have to eat some random Korean dish that isn't satisfying because my coteacher doesn't know how to say, "Oh, I would love for you to order lunch for me today, but let me ask soggysocks teacher if she would like some." Then I would say, "Thank you for asking, but I already have lunch plans."

Lunch is at 12:10, it's almost 1, no delivery yet, I'm hungry, I'm HANGRY, I could be at home eating left over chicken, or at the new Subway that just opened, but I'm here, at my desk, ranting, because my co is too damn polite.

I'm a bitch.

I don't understand  :huh:  Are you being fed a meal you wish you didn't have to eat?  or are you not being included by your teachers and left to starve??

You don't understand because I'm ridiculous.

I'm being included.

Like I said, I'm selfish and just wanted to eat something that wasn't Korean on a day where I can choose what I eat.
