Teach them Haiku’s.
They learn very quickly that it’s not bus-uh but that it’s bus. I’ve never been a fan of teaching direct Konglish lessons, and I think haiku’s get the point across very clearly.
Such a good lesson for grade 3.
That said, I’ve definitely doubted my grasp of the English language after being in Korea for so long and hearing things like o-ran-gee for many years.

that moment when you run into someone who you’ve not seen since July (before The Breakup) and they know all about your life. They say things like, “I heard you were dating a basketball player. And someone in the military.” And when they ask you if you’re seeing anyone you pause, think about the options—do I lie, do I say yes?—and you’ve paused just a touch too long for them to put the pieces together, to read your face, and they say, “so you’re seeing someone?” You spill the news figuring they’re bound to find out sooner or later, especially if they knew about the basketball player & the military guy.
This leaves me with one question: how the fuck did they know?
You’re right, I know what Bubbles is going to do—he’s going to bite our ankles and push against us with his might cat strength—where does that even come from? It’s like they can crush you with one paw.
"Life doesn’t always introduce you to the people you want to meet. Sometimes life puts you in touch with the people you need to meet – to help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you, and to gradually strengthen you into the person you were meant to become."

It’s amazing how one cat can manage to take up the majority of a queen sized bed. I’ve no clue what he’s going to do once DG gets here.
