I thought I’d take a time out from my usual ramblings about what is going wrong or right in my relationship to share a bit about my life here.
I am a teacher in Chine and have been for two and a half years. Currently I am teaching 17 and 18 year old’s who want to attend university abroad. So their English is fairly good. Of course every now and then they come up with some really classic comments that have me struggling not to laugh.
Me: Ok guys, decide what animal you are going to be and why. Student: I want to be Hello Kitty Me: um, ok. Why exactly do you want to be Hello Kitty? Student: because then all the girls will like me.
The class was debating which of their classmates the picture of the chimpanzee looked like. Me: I think its a male chimp so my vote is it looks like Anthem Anthem: What? I don’t see a cock
Me: Kobe are you texting your girlfriend again? Kobe: No, I don’t have a girlfriend Another student: He doesn’t have A girlfriend, he has two! A third student: No, he doesn’t have two girlfriends he has two boyfriends. He’s a homogenius
Student: (while showing a drawing of his dream house) This will be the swimming pool, where the hot girls will be swimming. Here is the movie theatre where the hot girls can watch their movies. These are the bedrooms for the hot girls. Me: So where do the not so hot girls get to go? Student: They’ll be on the basketball court, they need to work out. But there won’t be many of those. Me: Right, so do you actually know any hot girls? Student: Of course…… You!
After I had just told my students I’m pregnant. They had some work to complete Me: This work is pretty easy, what are doing? Student: I’m thinking Me: and what are you thinking about? Student: your stomach
Me: Ok so cranky means you are easily annoyed. You can also say grumpy Student: Like I’m in a shitty mood?
That’s all that is coming to mind now. I hope I brought some of a few laughs. Teaching students in China is so much fun!
