So I was thinking about writing a new article for my blog based on Korean students and how they react/what they say that we would deem as peculiar behaviour. Please share your experiences here:
Also have a look at my blog @ http://jdbrownlie.wordpress.com/
You are charming, I was actually quoting somebody else's experience because I found it amusing. Obviously as an English teacher and a red blooded American it's important to sit down and talk openly about sex and drugs to educate children for their future. It's my God given right.
Thank you for your enlightening opinion.
Doing a class this week about stereotypes, I introduced it by writing 'Americans are .......... ' on the board and inviting students to complete.
Surprisingly, all their comments were positive, as they were about the Brits. I then rubbed out the Brits and replaced it with 'Japanese'. The comments were unprintable... while they were spewing forth, I subtly wrote 'prejudice' and 'racism' on the board.
Me: What do you think about if someone says the word ''racism'?
Student: White people!
Stereotype are such because for the most part they are true.
My personal stereotypes; Americans----occupy places they shouldn't belong and are obese. Japanese are still angry about losing WW2 but they build great shit. Koreans try hard but they will never be Japan and can't get along, even with each other. Canadians are nice but clueless and the flag on their backpack makes them a target to every thief and scammer on the planet. Asians in general; can't drive and all look the same.
My all time favorite from a Korean student; Chinese are dirty and smell. That takes the cake.
Which of these aren't true, be honest?
More than one student said exactly what you did about the Chinese.
Me: Hold on, isn't the President black?
Student: No, he's brown. A black person is too stupid to be President.
The mind boggles....
He is brown though, his mother was white. He is mulatto; the textbook definition of such.
