Apologies for the blogging go-slow... I've been on the go in London town ;)and up at Reading for the festival and out of wifi range. (awesome time) Anywhoooo...
One of the classes that I developed for our ESL (English Second Language) theme park is about an alien who has a broken spaceship. We talk about space and the things we can see in space and then we have to go on an adventure to different parts of the world (desert, ocean etc) and do different challenges in order to find the pieces of the missing spaceship so that the Alien can fly back to his home in space.
Before we can begin our mission around the world, we have to build a mini crazy character profile for the alien - you know, a bit of an ice-breaker and to encourage the kids to speak freely and get warmed up for the class...
"excellent! good work!"
(kid getting more and more adamant about the alien eating penis.)
look at co-teacher. co-teacher shrugs. Adopt vital ESL technique:
(penis. that's not a word. what are you talking about?)
kid points to Venus on the Solar System Map.
Gaaah. VENUS. of course it is.
Note the completely defeated expression of hopelessness on young Asian child's face and realise that if exposed, this single moment of humilation may make him never want to speak english again in his life, ever. Executive Decision: Just. go. with it.
and that was the day i endorsed Penis as a delectable treat for green Aliens to a class of 10 year old Asians. oh my life. - the end.
If this automated post goes off, then i will have been successful at the internet.
well done me.
I'm on the way to London Town for a vacay - eep! currently as this is scheduled to be posted, I will be dealing with an epic flight of death. BUT, may i remind you that I am VERY GOOD at making my OWN "inflight entertainment". If you are planning on making a long journey in the near future, i suggest you consult my handy manual. That's all for now. Mind the gap.
I have however decided that cornflakes on your sushi is actually rather grand.
That way, if you ever miss breakfast - you can just smash some sushi and get two meals done in one. I love how good Korea is at time management.
So... Since there were two people who guessed CHEESE as one of the unique ingredients - I have decided to award the sushi voucher to Jade Wall who guessed CHEESE and HAM.
This is because Korea's "NORMAL" take on sushi includes HAM.
Sometimes it also includes cheese and beef.
but mainly... THE HAM.
You can watch the making of it in action here:
If you would like to see how to make Kimbap, watch the whole thing.
If you would like a little chuckle... watch from 4:00 minutes.
Congrats to Jade, I will be in touch for your sushi voucher :)
