Today's Lesson

What is written on my blackboard:

"TODAY'S CLASS - MIDTERM REVIEW
1. Conditional sentences
2. Irregular verb review
3. Short essay using conditionals and irregular verbs"

What we are actually doing in class today:

Watching Mean Girls.


Exams around here are serious business, and the kids are super, super stressed about midterms. Korean high school is 3 years, but most of my kids go to university after 2 years, and so their college applications only show 3 semesters worth of work. So these exams count -- a LOT.

Today I told them that they can study or sleep during class and I won't get pissed. Buuuut they all chose to watch Mean Girls!
