Ian got another piece of terrible candy today. He says it tasted somewhere between apple and kimchi. Better him than me, I'd have thrown up.
Our students have no concept of geography. Ian tried to get his students to place countries on a map today and they could not. I've had students ask me where "America" is. Come on kid, it's a whole continent.
Today was pretty uneventful. We're coming up on the end of the term, so Ian and I are doing report cards this weekend.
I had to ask David (who delivered the cards to me) to explain the differences between the terms pronunciation and intonation and the terms positiveness and attitude. Apparently, "positiveness" refers to participation. Why isn't it called participation? Well, because we're in Korea. I want this country to hire me as it's copy editor.
Considering that Ian and I each have somewhere between 150-210 students, this is going to be pretty time consuming.
Other than report cards, Ian and I don't have much planned for the weekend. A little cleaning, a little Korean study, possibly celebrating some birthdays with the other teachers (whose, I am unsure), and maybe checking out Uirimji by ourselves.
What are you lovely people planning to do with your weekend?
