I've been here...just very busy. I have not had much time on my own to blog (been hanging out with friends almost every night - I only have 2 months and 1 week left), and I haven't had much "free" time at school either. Long story.
My co-teacher has finally decided after 10 months that I actually do know what I'm talking about, and she wants me to create all these learning materials for her to use next year. It's technically not part of my contract, but.....she has confided in me that she is always feels frustrated and inadequate. She said that she has looked back over her teaching last year and knows that she did a bad job. So I am helping her create some simple activities.
These take time. First, I create them on my computer based on the textbook lesson. I also write directions for each activity. Then I print speaking cards out and cut them out. I then give them to my co-teacher, so she can laminate them. She gives them back to me, so I can cut them out. Then I give them back to her, so she can put the Braille tape on them. We do this for each activity.
Let's get to the Five 4 Friday with Doodle Bugs!
We found THE best breakfast spot near our hostel. It was better than IHOP and Denny's!
Visiting the Seoul Arts Center museum
Visiting the amazing Princess Cafe where you can dress up in a traditional Korean hanbok or a wedding dress. Since I had just dressed up in a hanbok several weeks ago, I chose the wedding dress. It's like a grown up little girl's dream!
They also had fun accessories to put on too.
On Sunday morning we went to church. The service was fantastic. Fabulous music. Fabulous message. It's the mother church of my church in Daejeon. Made me want to move to Seoul.
I even made a sign to hang above my desk at school. I love it.
Ahh...love in Korea. And I just missed taking a picture of her sucking his fingers. Literally. Sometimes Korea makes you uber aware of your singleness.
Hope you guys had a great week! I know pretty much everyone is on summer break. Except me. What are you doing during your summer break?
