The hilarious things students say to you....
« on: April 26, 2011, 07:45:58 am »
Hello everyone,

I just finished my newest project, www.stuffmystudentssaid.com.  This site is a place where teachers can post the hilarious or insightful things their students say.  It's a pretty simple site, which functions much like a few of my favorite user-generated content sites such as www.notalwaysright.com.  Since it is a new site, I am still in need of content.  Please think about contributing.  It only takes a few minutes! Please post on the website.  Thanks!

Also if you see any bugs, or have any comments or suggestions, please let me know!

-Anthony

I asked my students to use their imaginations and answer a series of questions. One of the questions was "why are you looking at the map." In response a student wrote: "My job is earth protect hero. I need to memorize the map." Love it!

From a stint in a hagwon last year. When asked to use a room name and a verb in the present continuous in a sentence Luke replied: "He's dying in the living room."

I had to choose a team who sang the best during class (whoever was best got to leave class first.) I chose who I thought was singing the best and one of the losing students looked at me and screamed "YOUR CHOICE MEANS NOTHING!" and stormed out of the room.

I am working on a comic idea for what my students say. I have a total of 42 typed-pages, but they are not standard paragraph form. They are typed in dialogue text. Some of my favorites. . .

1) Student: Teacher!?! Girlfriend?
Me: Friends.
Student: MARRIED?
Me: Just friends.
Students: BABIES! NO! YOU ARE MINE!

2) Student: Teacher, you have small head. You ugly.
Me: I have a normal head. You have a big head.
Student: Teacher, I tall. You short. You ugly.
Me: I am average. You are a giant.
Student: You are stupid. I am smart.
Me: I have German chocolate.
Student: HANDSOME! You SO amazing. I love you. You are. . .the. . .amazing man-man with . . .beautiful skin and great things.

Some of the responses I remember from last semester: gay bar bartender, gay bar CEO, arsonist, father, and homeless.

There were some other gems, but I can't recall what they were.

This was during some game involving points for each team.....

Student:"Teacher Me Police call"
(Student mimed calling Police)
Me "Why?"
Student:" Points no give"

Much laughter from class and teacher..I  passed her my cellphone at this point ...

It was a basic second grade Elementary class so you have to give some credit for the English.
Needless to say the Police never got called.....

Funny student...:)

Other funny things..

Teacher : How are you?
Student : I'm die
Teacher : Yes very funny...

(Probably hear this one 5 times a day from my fifth grade students...)

Student:sorry.

Student 1- She copied my answer.
Student 2- No, i said it first.

Student 2- Well, I am Korean too.
Me: She has a point, you are both korean.

Students arguing about whether trucks are cars in my high level conversation class

Student 1- It is not a car. you can't say truck is a car.
Student 2- No it is bigger than a car. more wheels.
Student 3- I think it is the same as a car.
Student 4- Yes, I think it is the same as a car too.
Me: Ok, let's take a vote, who thinks a truck is a car?
Student 1- Teacher, this is not a democracy! THIS IS NOT A DEMOCRACY!! Why are we voting, it is not a car.
