In honor of all my students who are busy studying for Final Exams (bum bum buuuuummmm), I will share some of the funny things they say that make me laugh. Cause my students are awesome and I love 'em. I want to put them all in my pocket. I can't believe my first semester teaching university kids is almost over!
"True or false: Mel Gibson starred in Star Wars."
"Zara, starred? Like... twinkle twinkle?"
"My mother is ... in home ... no job?"
"No, she doesn't build houses."
"What does your mom look like?"
"Short, black hair, small face. Like baby chicken."
"What does Denise need to go on vacation?"
(students were quizzing each other with "what's she like" vs. "what's she look like" questions)
"What's your teacher like?"
*panicked face as the recipient looks over and sees me listening*
Zara, you talk so fast! Like Eminem.
(one of my favorite girls to a very sweet boy volunteer in the English cafe)
You are a strange creature.
(same volunteer, who talks a LOT)
I can talk anytime. No topic.
(seriously, a kid after my own heart!)
One day, two of my engineers had the same hoodie and jacket on. That's a pretty common thing for couples or friends to do, so I asked if they did it on purpose and they looked at each other in horror and one of them shrugged his jacket off faster than I could say "LOL" ...they're just presh!
(Because they have to work in pairs for conversations...)
Zara, you are my partner. I want you. I need you. [oh baby, oh baby?]
Another time, I asked two groups of 3 to make pairs instead and OH MY GOODNESS I got a death stare from one of the girls. It was as if I asked her to work with an ex-boyfriend after a bad break up. I'm talking DEATH STARE. Woops...
