Today I was chatting with students about their dream jobs as an intro to the "Jobs: Old and New" lesson...

Me: So what's your dream job?
Student: I want to be a CEO! (just like the previous 5 students)
Me: Uh, cool. So. What's a CEO?
Student: *deep thinking*  Cheese Elephant Officer!
Me: Points for effort, kiddo.

Actually, I was very surprised when several other students were able to actually give me the correct answer...
Mmmm ... Cheese elephants!

Tell Me Funny L/R, B/P, J/Z Sentences Your Student Said

Do you have any funny sentences that one of your students wrote or said due to mispronunciation of letters or spelling?

A student told me the other day, "Teacher, I have a picture of me in a towel. Wait..." I told him that I don't want to see that, and he didn't understand why.

If he had said, "tower," then I would have been fine....pronunciation is important in cases like these.

Coteacher: How do you spell crap??
Me: C-c-crap? Why?
Coteacher: This student went on vacation and he ate crap.
Me: Umm...
Coteacher: You know, crap. Like lobster.
Me: I think you mean "crab".

This has happened on multiple occasions.  :laugh: :laugh:

Mine is similar. I asked my kids what they would do with a million doallrs.

"Teacher, I would build a Megajew."

 :rolleyes:

One more for good measure. I asked my kids to do a speaking assignment on how to make friends if you moved to a new school. My boy student got up and told the class that he would write Lesbian letters to all the girls at the school.

I'd only been here 3 or 4 months so I was blown away. WTF? How is this possible. So, the boy finishes his speech and goes to sit down. I ask him, "Do people really write Lesbian letters here????"


"TEACHER! LET'S BE FRIENDS LETTERS, LET'S BE FRIENDS LETTERS!"

Not exactly L/R etc but I've gotten some pretty classic pronunciation issues I love
Coteacher - "are you drinking a cock?"
"a what?"
"a cock?"
"oh! Yes, a Coke."

For some reason my kids think "beach" is "bit*h" so I have one kid that gets hysterical and rowdy when someone says "I went to the beach" which doesn't even make sense.

On the flip side - my kids know about the drink "Sex on the Beach" so someone did grafitti on my desk "Sex on the Bit*h" which I loved.

For some reason none of my kids can say "snack" so it comes out "snake"
"After school I ate a snake"
 "Did you?!"

And it took me about a year to figure out Chombees. "teacher Chombies! Chombeeeeeesss!"
"huh?"
"You know, Chombies, brainnnsss!"
I still didn't get it until my coteacher pulled up a picture.

Lastly dog comes out duck a lot more than I think it should.
"Teacher, I have a duck"
"You do?!"
"Yeah, he is very furry."
"Those are feathers."
"Feathers? Dog teacher, dog, KANG! KANG! KANG! KANG!" (barking sound, apparently)

From a co-teacher a while back:

Coteacher: You don't have to come to school tomorrow, everybody has the day off.
Me: Why?
Coteacher: Because it's national erection day. We need tomorrow off to vote in the national erection.
Me: Oh... I see!

Oh man, not to one up you or anything but you jogged something loose in my brain.

I did conversational adult sessions for a few months. Enter Mr. Park. 55 year old Journalist.

Park: CO2, my erection is coming up!
Me: WHAT???
Park: My erection.......... very big!
Mr. Lee (my other student): At City Hall, maybe new mayor.
Me: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I got the snake/snack thing too, although in my situation, the "snake" choice was quite believable.

(Student takes a white circle out of a package I don't see to offer to me): Teacher, snake!
Me: Snake?
S: Yes, teacher. Chinese food. Snake! (holds out circle)
Me: (well, they eat other stuff there, why not...dried snake!) Sure.

I proceed to eat it while student and friends watch with too much interest for a normal snack. It tastes kind of strange.

S: Teacher, is it delicious?
Me: It's okay. (Looks at them suspiciously.) 뱀 (snake)?
S: NO teacher! Snake, snake! 관식 (snack).
Me: Well, that's good.

My favorite food is lice.

My 6th graders yesterday were grooming each other during class by picking at each other's heads. I ask, "hey, what are you girls doing there?"

"Teacher, teacher, GoEun has rice...many rice!"

WTF are you doing in my class then?!!!

Some of these are pretty funny. I've alwats heard the Jewkeeper one, but it's a lot funnier reading it here.

My favorite is: "Teacher boobie! Let's watch boobie!!!"
"Uhhhhh."
"The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword."

In a high school lesson on favorite foods, one student wrote that he likes "folk lips".

This was during my first year, so I was a bit nonplussed.  Today, of course, I would instantly recognise that as "pork ribs".

I was reviewing the words for body parts with my Grade 3s yesterday. Ensuring they knew which body parts were which I asked them to point the parts out for me.

Me: "Show me your neck! Show me your legs!"
Student: "Show me the money!"

This was about an hour ago. (middle school 1st grade girl. Super good kid throughout the year, and pretty quiet in nature)

We were playing Scattegories

Category: Some you find in the refrigerator that starts with B

Girl: Beer!

Next round, same girl.

Category: Some you drink that starts with K

Girl: Kloud! Cloud beer, so good teacher!

Playing the same game
Category: Something you DO in PE class.
2 girls: Teacher!
Me: No, something you DO.
2 girls: Yes, we do the PE teacher.
Me: uhhh. No, that isn't correct. *moves to next team*

(Zoe is sitting hunched over and with a look of pain on her face.)

ME: Zoe? Are you okay? Are you sick?
(Zoe shakes her head no.)
ME: Do you need to go to the bathroom?
(Zoe shakes her head no.)
DIANA: Meeps! *she points at Zoe* BLOOD! LOTS AND LOTS OF BLOOD!


LANA: Which do you prefer, pad or obie?
ME: Obie?
LANA: You know, obie! *she mimes something filthy*
ME: Oh....OH. O.B. Tampons?
LANA: Yeah. I don't wanna use O.B., but I don't want Americans to think I'm weird.
ME: Too late.

My students have been begging me to get a hair cut. Admittedly I was getting a bit shaggy. So i got a cut this morning. I walked into class, thinking the kids would finally be satisfied.
Whole class in unison:AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!NOOOOOOOOOO!
Ji-min: Teacher go! Don't come back until your hair grows!!!!!

Some of my students in my art club are ordering chicken next week and invited me to join.

S: Teacher!  What kind of chicken do you like?  What style?
M: I'll eat anything really, just nothing crazy hot and spicy.
S: How about no....no...mmmmmm chicken?
M: What?
(Student slaps her arm and makes many "uhms" and "aah"'s while trying to think.)
S: Ah!  Teacher!  Do you like no bone chicken?
M: Boneless chicken?  Sure.
S: HAHA OMG NO BONE CHICKEN = BONELESS CHICKEN HAHA!

She and another kid proceed to lose it over her apparently ridiculous guess of "no bone chicken"for "boneless".  When another CT came in, she also relayed the story and her mistake and they cracked up all over again.  I don't think my CT had any idea why they found it so funny either.  High schoolers are weird. :huh:
