Four years of hilarious kids’ quotes from the ESL classroom in South Korea.
Following on from the success of Quote Friday – a round up of the best quotes of the week from my elementary school classroom – comes the full and unabridged book featuring some never before read additions from students, family and, of course, The Canadian One.
Packed full of hysterical quotes such as:
Having just read the sentence: ‘Baby wallabies are born without fur.’
Me: “What are baby wallabies born without?”
Me: “What’s a baby chicken called?”
Kid: “An egg fry.”
Me: “What’s your favorite book?”
Kid: “Harry Potter.”
Me: “What’s the story?”
Kid: “It has no story.”
Me: “What are eyebrows?”
Kid: “People’s eye fur.”
Me: “What’s a ‘tail’?”
Kid: “A dog’s antenna.”
Me: “When do we find out who wins this election in America? Is it like the same day or is it weeks later like on The X Factor?”
The Canadian One: “The US election is NOT like The X Factor.”
Watch Out For The Hedgehog is the must-read book for educators, travellers, ESL teachers and anyone who’s ever been curious about what it’s like to teach English in a foreign country.
