English Camp!

There is this event that goes on at some places called an English Camp. Its where kids go to after school to do activities, roleplay and games in English. Its so much fun.
I did my first English Camp on Friday and I would love to do it again.
I got to be an Immigration Officer and I asked for their passport, names, age and where they were from and they had to answer me in English, then I put an Immigration stamp in their passport and they went to line up and get their tickets ready and memorize where their seat was and then they went on the plane...

Here they pretended to be on an airplane and the flight attendant asked then questions in English ("what would you like to drink?") and they answered in English and were given their item.

("Orange Juice, please")

Here is another fun room, after the airplane they went to another room and did a play about three goats and a big troll, in English. It was tons of fun!

Here they were making telephone lines out of cups.

And then they played Bingo, in English, and even got good prizes. ^^

I will totally do it again. I can't wait to do another one

bad day

Sorry for the really late response. today has only just started and its bad. i was on the bus when i remembered that i forgot my materials. so i got off at the next stop and got them. this time the bus was packed, i got pushed by ahjumma. then on the subway got pushed by an ajossi. then a full thrust out of the way by another ahjumma. it really sucks so now I'm pissed what else can go wrong

anyways, several hours later, I continue this post...
nothing bad happened ^^ I am very pleased. The kids were really good today. They absolutely love my hand crafted stories (stolen of course but still printed, cut coloured and glued all by me)
and baby monkey. Oh, how he is so cute.

So... I have this little cardboard cut out of this cute cartoon monkey in diapers, his name is Baby monkey and he is cold when its winter, so we roll dice with pictures of a coat, scarf, boots, hat and sweater and but the corresponding winter clothing article on him (yay for Velcro!!)

Its fun. Now for Christmas.. I have to figure out what game to play because we cant really use baby monkey for Christmas because my theme will be Christmas for all of December yay!

second time at a sauna

went with faith, a friend I met two weeks earlier and we all went out to eat in gwanghamun, we got stuck in sindorim station because we were on the last train and thats were it was stopping at, but our station is 15 or 20 minutes further and all the busses were stopped.
after midnight the taxi prices go up and we didn't have enough money to take a taxi and our friend didn't have any cash on her, so we ended up staying overnight at a jjimjilbang (public bathhouse).
we showered and then soaked in the tubs for up to an hour and then met jang ik at the co-ed (clothes) room. The floor was heated and there were sauna rooms that were blazing hot or ice cold. They h
