Since last week, at work, it has been "Get to know your Foreign English Teacher" time. I gave a short Powerpoint presentation about myself and then went straight into questions. Here for you are a list of the top questions asked by my 4th and 6th graders (that I can remember....I am bushwhacked).

  4. Will you marry him?
  5. Are you thinking about marrying him?
  6. How old is he?
  7. Is he handsome?
  8. Where does he live?
  9. Where do you live? (In Korea?)
  10. Do you like Korea?
  11. What Korean food do you like?
  12. Do you like kimchi?
  13. Do you like spicy food?
  14. Which one is better? Korea or America
  15. Do you know Avatar?
  16. Do you like Avatar?
  17. What type of movies do you like?
  18. What Korean singer do you like?
  19. Do you know Ohno?
  20. Do you know Kim Yuna?
  21. Do you like ghosts?
  22. Have you seen a ghost?
  23. Which one is better? Everland or Disneyland
  24. Do you like 'you'?
I am going to stop there. As you can see kids (no matter what side of the globe) are always creative. I was impressed by their questions and level of English. However, it tended to be the same kids asking me questions. But they seemed to have a lot of fun finding out about me.

What's the craziest or funniest thing a student ever asked about you?


  1. "are your eyes real?"

    (I have blue eyes.)

  2. Me too ~ I have had that question too and usually answer in a silly way.

  3. "Teacher is baby??" while patting my stomach...

    I never considered myself fat until I started teaching preschoolers...

  4. Two little girls asking me to marry their mother.

  5. If I have always been answer was actually no^^

  6. Good ones ~ ;) (I've had the baby one too)

  7. "Is your hair really yellow?".
    Er, no it's ginger or red.

    "How much do you weigh?"

    "You should have a boyfriend, why don't you have a boyfriend?".
    Alas, I don't have all the answers!

  8. Yesterday I was asked, "Do you think you're handsome?" and "Does your girlfriend think you're handsome?" Darn those kids and their trick questions....

  9. Hi,
    This is hilarious!

    I'd love to feature you as a blogger on - a site where women travelers exchange travel advice with the experts–other women travelers.

    Send a picture of yourself in Korea and related insights to

    Looking forward to hearing from you,

  10. haha those are great! The best question I was asked is... Are you related to Obama??? They really asked that.

    And Chris in Korea... that's a great question, I hope you you said yes and totally rolled with it.

  11. "Teacher! Do you like murder?"

    Granted, it was in relation to a question on my favourite TV show Glee or CSI but still... made me smile for the rest of the day.

  12. Another English teacher's uncle was visiting... he stopped by my classroom and told my students he was my boyfriend. The next day, my students very seriously came up and asked if Santa was REALLY my boyfriend.

    I said yes.
