"Let's go to Sky Land" (their word for "heaven" - it's more entertaining than hearing the usual "let's all die!")

Once I interrupted a clip from a movie, and the whole class screamed.  One kid in particular yelled, at the top of his lungs, "TEACHER!  I NEED CLIMAX!!!"  I about died laughing on the spot.  It didn't help that the other kids in the class repeated him!  I don't even know how to begin to correct them on that...

I've also had several students say their "dream" is to be a "father" (though none of mine have fessed to an Oedipal complex!)  Usually it's from the worst kids, too.  Probably because their fathers rule the house with an iron fist...

"Teacher, teacher, oh no. We do hand job." ( when asking they if they planned to use the vaccum to clean the floor instead of using their hands)

" Oh no teacher I can't.  Your English makes me too excited!" ( when asking a student to stand up to role play with another student. I died a little bit that day)

While studying "I'd like to" I showed them a picture of George Bush eating a cat (I'm about 98% sure it's photo-shopped). One of my students pipes up "Ooh! Teacher! Not hot dog, hot cat!" Then two minutes later: "Teacher! It's KFC!" I almost wet my pants  :laugh:

Sometimes I'm not too sure what my students do during their 10-minute breaks...


I see 4 students (boys) carrying a fifth by each of his limbs, face up. All of them are smiling, so I wasn't... that... worried

Student 1: *sees my approach* TEACHA! HIII, HIIII TEACHA!

Students 2, 3, 4: ah, teacha! HI!

Student being carried: waaaaaa!!! heellp! help teacha!

Me: ah... hi guys... where are you going?

Student being carried: teacha HEEEELLLLPPP!!!!

Student 3: we kill him!! *much enthusiastic nodding*

Me: I'm sorry? (they're used to me saying this for 'can you repeat that?')

Student 3: we KILL him! die! die!

Student 2: ok! bye teacha! bye, bye!

They were all in class 7 minutes later, perfectly unscathed....



edit: another post reminded me about a HS class last week. BG: Students can earn english tokens from me for good work, sometimes out of class as well, for really good English. a girl was comlaining after class quite vocally and vehemently that she hated English, and it soon became
Student 1: Teacha! Englishee hard, no Englishee!

Me: English, *good*- English can be fun. But it's hard work, yes, it's difficult.

Student 1: Noooooo, teacha! Englishee BAD, I HATE you teacha!

random Student 2 from hallway: Ah, Teacha, hi teacha! *sees my reward bag I usually carry* ah! Teacha! Englishee coupon! you have candy?? I speak good Englishee, you give me coupon??

Student 1: oh, teacha I LOVE you! coupon? coupon? Englishee good, I love you teacha....

One of my students came up to me and told me that he had heard that Americans eat sandwiches for lunch everyday.  As I'm an American, I told him that this was not true.  Yes, sandwiches are common, but we have many other things to eat for lunch.  Sometimes the stereotypes amaze me. ::)

...and if your school is like mine you eat Korea and Kimchi everyday for lunch. haha maybe myth busted in this situation if Koreans eat Kimchi for lunch everyday.
I'm not a vlogger or blogger, so I make videos of things I do in and around school and Korea.

My 6th graders recently picked up "What the hell!" from someone so now I hear it with everything. Greeting me - "Hi teacher! What the hell!" Winning a game - "아싸! What the hell!" Asking to go to the bathroom - "Teacher, bathroom. What the hell!"
