If the lecture is at all decent, the highlights might make for an interesting thread here on Wayg.  :smiley:

I'll post some cool stuff tomorrow. Here's a pic.

EDIT 1: I had a question for him. "Do you put any personal flourishes in the movie as a watermark, or step back as Paquet free as possible and be engaging and accurate?"

He said that for the Korean line "Wow, if SNU (Seoul National University) had a degree in forgery, you'd be a master" was to be changed, by Bong Joonho's decision, to either Oxford or Harvard for the Eng subs.

Darcy picked Oxford. Why? Because he was rejected by Harvard many moons ago. hahahaha

Moving from Elementary in Gunpo to Middle in Uiwang.

Change of pace might be nice. Older students, better English abilities.

Nice! :D I'm here until August, hoping to renew 1 more time but will probably leave about halfway through.
I want to see my current 2nd graders, who will do 3rd next year, graduate but, I'm at the point I need a change of pace myself. So hoping to stay until they graduate, then I plan on moving.

In theory, but depending on the school, that may not be how it works out.  In my experience a lost elementary kid who can't follow is preferable to a restless middle schooler who doesn't have any English skills.  If they made it to middle school without picking any up they sure as sh*t aren't going to start caring now.

definitely the writing. the 2 short answer questions weren't too bad. but i didnt even attempt the second essay and im pretty sure i wrote nonsense for the first (shorter) essay. writing was my lowest score, then reading, then listening

It was Christmas Day in 1950, and this was no ordinary birth.

The mother was one of 14,000 North Korean refugees crammed into a US merchant marine ship, fleeing the advancing guns of the Chinese army.

There was barely enough room on board to stand - and there wasn't much medical equipment, either.

"The midwife had to use her teeth to cut my umbilical cord," Lee Gyong-pil tells me some 69 years on. "People said the fact that I didn't die and was born was a Christmas miracle."

Mr Lee was the fifth baby born on the SS Meredith Victory that winter, during some of the darkest days of the Korean War.

The Meredith Victory's three-day voyage saved thousands of lives, including the parents of the current President of South Korea, Moon Jae-in.

No one died aboard the ships. All 200,000 who made that perilous journey to South Korea - around half of them refugees, half of them troops - reached land alive.

Amazing:

There are thought to be around a million descendents of the Hungnam evacuation living in South Korea and around the world.

Been a while, people of Waygook!  ;D

As I mentioned in another post, I was selected for JET interviews recently.

On top of that, I was looking for a more current job and went to this prep school to interview for a sub position, and walked out with an interventionist job.

Needless to say, things have been swell!

Congrats! The uncertainty and the feeling of being examined and judged that goes with job hunting has always been super stressful for me, so it's always nice to hear success stories like this.

   You going with the JET position, or are you gonna be an interventionist (which is... what exactly?)?
