My students wrote some essays about the movie Frozen.

Apparently, Elsa has "mice powers."

One student's favorite character is Holarape, because "Holarape is cut." (I'm guessing...Olaf?)

Not to me but a friend at a country school:

"Teacha, cow, no hello. Pig, no hello. Cow, annyeong-haseyo. Pig, annyeong-haseyo"

He was trying to say he was going to be a farmer so why learn English to speak to farm animals. I thought it was cute.

One of my favorite when I was teaching at an all boys high school. This was an activity for low level students. I told them they need to create a movie and roles. So in a group of 4 there was a director, writer and two actors.

Me: Ok who is who here
Student 1: I am director
Student 2: I am writer
Me: What is your movie about?
Student 2: Gay porn movie

I am trying not to laugh

The director then tells me that one of the students will pretend to be gay and the other one won't

High school boys can be pretty funny sometimes.

i got much worse from my middle school boys. I think that topic is used in a joking matter regardless what school boys are in

The school asked me when I arrived that if I had free time could I roam the halls at lunch and interact with the students; allowing them to use English outside of the classroom. This lunchtime walk soon became my favourite as I got some of the FUNNIEST questions and statements ever.

Last summer a group of my grade six boys came to me at lunch while I was out in the yard enjoying the sun. One of the boys has a pretty good grasp of English and he was tasked with asking me the questions or statements the others said in Korean.
I realized quickly that these questions/statements were meant to test me/embarrass me/give them a good laugh.

Boy:
Teacher, I have to go poo. (Other boys howling in laughter)
Me: Go ahead. (Dead pan facial expression)
Boy: Teacher...poo....
Me: Go, you don’t need my permission (he’s high level English)

At this point the laughter died as they realized I wasn't reacting in the way they wanted. They asked a few other harmless questions until the last one.....
(note: he whispered this slightly as I think he was embarrassed)
Boy: Teacher?....Have you seen a boys....umm...special place?

At this point my brain ran a million miles a millisecond on how to respond, and taking a millisecond to laugh hysterically in my head.
I said ‘yes’. The look of sheer shock on his face was funny. Now the other boys were still laughing that he had asked me so they hadn’t heard me answer. I looked this kid dead in the eye no smile, no frown, nothing and said:
"Remember? I have a baby brother. When he was very very little I had to help my mother change his diapers."

The boy looked real serious in thought for a moment and then it dawned on him and he looked at me nodding, like that was the most obvious and normal answer. He then told me I must have been a good big sister.

Since I had not reacted to their questions as they wanted they changed to telling me about their favourite computer games.
All in all the funniest 10 minutes I've had.

"Potato-teacher, you are so beautiful. Your hair is the same color as my hamster."

ME: "I have a cold. What should I do?"
STUDENT: "You should die."
(Coteacher yells)
STUDENT: "I'm sorry. You should go to heaven."

Uhhh...better?

We were going over like and dislike sentences.

Me: Ji-hyun, what fruit don't you like?
Ji-hyun: I don't like raisins.
Me: Why?
Ji-hyun: Because they are small.

At this point the class is cracking up and Ji-hyun cannot fathom why.

i dont get it either.

is it funny because a raisin is really a grape?
or was there some kind of 'second meaning' behind being a raisin/small?
You only live today once. You wont get a second chance. You wont get to live it twice. So make the most of it.

Maybe it means balls?


(I showed the class a picture of Hello Kitty during Speed Quiz)
6TH GRADE BOY: "Oh! My girlfriend!"
ME: "She doesn't have a mouth."
6TH GRADE BOY: "I know."
ME: 'So how do you kiss her?"
6TH GRADE BOY: "We will kiss in heaven when we die."

Okey-dokey.

Teacher: do you have a math book?
Student 2: Yes.
Teacher: do you have a science book?
Student 2: Yes.
Teacher: so you have a math and science book, but your ENGLISH book was stolen?
Student 2: Yes.
Teacher: That is strange
Student 2: Yes. Everyone loves Englishy

*me* Let's go, quickly, get your books out.
"Too early!"
*my thoughts: that is EXACTLY what a child would say back home, when they are tired. i wonder HOW he know this phrase?  i mean, usually i get the groaning noise, or the 'teacher im tired' noise. but he just flat out said "it's tooo early". lol.

I would watch that one. I am not sure why they call you "Potato-teacher" but...
Korean: 감자 = potato
Korean: 감자 = slang for not looking put together; or untidy in looks. Some of my students use it as slang for "ugly", I found this out after I questioned why all of my students called this one kid "potato" all of the time and why he was getting upset  :police:

"Potato-teacher, you are so beautiful. Your hair is the same color as my hamster."

no sooner did i finish reading this, than i heard students yelling this in the hallway, and some teachers (next to me) in the teachers-room started laughing.

Painted my nails one day...

Kindergarten student: Wow! Teacher maneecute, maneecute
Me: Yes, I got a manicure. Do you like it?
Kindergarten student: Yes teacher, maneecute aaah cuttee

Somewhere the concept of manicure and 'very cute' got tangled.  I was still impressed with the English from the five year old.

"Teacher, I'm not contagious!" He says, then he proceeds to rub his rash all over me.... :huh:

4th graders...2 girls low to intermediate level...

Girl 1: Teacher, you have baby?
Me:  :huh: No, remember, I don't have children.
Girl 2: no, no! [begins to motion with her hands and I still don't get it]
Girl 1: Teacher, this [motions round belly motion], you know, baby...
Me:  :shocked: Am I having a baby?
Girl 1: Yes!
Me: NO!
Girls: oh...you look big.
me: :huh:

I am not even fat. I am average, but I was wearing a loose dress and the fans were blowing it all around me, my guess is they thought it was a maternity dress...lol.
They know I am not married..
