In one of my morning classes today things were going well with students paying attention and not talking too much. Energy levels were good, and I was satisfied with the general levels of language learner motivation.
I begin giving instructions for a conversation worksheet when I notice two boys not paying attention. I begin walking towards them while saying, “Please pay attention.” In the midst of speaking I suddenly realize that they’ve both got their tongues stuck out in the air . . and they’re wiggling them at each other . . . . lol.
Let’s just say gender and sexuality high school boy culture in Korea is DIFFERENT! LOL . . .
