Thought I’d share a few links I found while checking my “Korea” news feed this morning.
The Waygook Effect posted a “Top” 10 list of the worst English dialogue videos used in Korean public schools. Believe it or not, they get weirder than this one:
Barack Obama continues to wax hopeful about Korean education standards. He recently praised Korean students‘ math and science achievements.
Quoth the prez:
In South Korea, teachers are known as nation builders. I think it’s time we treated our teachers with the same level of respect right here in the United States of America.
No one who’s ever set foot in a hagwon would say that.
As for their apparent superiority at science? Whatever. Americans might be too stupid to understand evolution, but Koreans still believe in fan death.
