I have been working as an Online Instructor to Korean students for 3 years now and I am telling you, it is so much fun than you think it is… for 3 years…I have taught, I have learned and I have laughed my heart out. I guess it’s time to let yourself hear and read the things that I get to experience every single minute of everyday. Remember, helping is an opportunity. It’s a privilege but this time, I can’t help it…Read on…
#10 KOREANS ON THE RISE:
One of the funniest links I ever got thru my Facebook account. Koreans are beginning to make it big not only in Korea but also in some other countries. Maybe that’s the reason why one of their bigger hits titled “NOBODY” by the WONDERGIRLS got spoofed by Military personnel…Check it out…
#9 STUDENTS ARE GIVEN THE CHANCE TO BE TEACHERS [so they can practice]: Here are some of their funny responses. Their fair share of being brilliant teachers coming at #9 - #8
A. The student [acting teacher] asking the teacher [acting student] on being self centered.
DO YOU WANT TO CALL THE CENTER OF ATTENTION [do you want to be the center of attention?]
B. praising the teacher [acting student] for the great job done.
CLAP YOURSELF FOR TEN COUNTS! [whew! How do you do that?!]
C. asking the teacher [acting student] to sing the song they practiced.OK…YOU KNOW SONG “ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT GENTLY DOWN THE STREET...”
[correct me if I am wrong, but that’s “down the stream” right?! I got confused too…]
D. Here, the teacher [acting student] intentionally made a mistake to teach the student [acting teacher] on how to make corrections…the teacher first said “SORRY” the student all of a sudden…
I ACCEPT YOUR APOLOGIZE… [whoa! Almost! That was a good try dear student….better say I ACCEPT YOUR APOLOGY or NO PROBLEM…
E. Last one, the teacher [acting student] was explaining how terrible the memory of his grandfather was…the student [acting teacher] responded…
OH SO THEY BECOMING FORGETFULNESS... [oh so cute and lovable…at least he’s trying]
COMING IN AT #7 - #5: EXCERPTS OF WHAT’S GOING ON DURING CLASSES BETWEEN THE STUDENT AND THE TEACHER. THEY MIGHT BE DOING THE LESSONS, PRACTICING, PLAYING or REVIEWING PREVIOUS ONES…BLOOPERS…
