Why do I like teaching ESL in Spain? Because this happens:
“The underpants are good because give you security in your mini-balls.”
–an 11 year old boy, who promptly laughed hysterically for 5 minutes at his own wit.
Or this exchange:
“Ramon, do you have a cookie?”
“No! I ate it!
It’s waiting… In my bum!
It’s going in the toilet!”
–a 7 year old who then starts dancing around the kitchen.
Or this happens:
“Alex is very very high!”
–and I don’t say a word because I don’t want to teach a pair of 11 year old boys the other meaning of “high.”
And this happens all the time:
“Teacher, how do you say whiskey?”
“Do you like whiskey?”
–From 13 year olds, nuff said.
Anyone have any equally ridiculous student quotes? The more inappropriate or immature, the better.
