Do you need to know the language of the country you're moving to? by Christine Kaaloa
Sometimes I find myself making more excuses not to do something, than to do it. It's all unconscious, of course... a combination of worry, self-doubt, fear and/or anxiety. I usually start with "WHAT IF" and end with either, "...I'm not enough" or "...I can't."

What souvenirs should you buy on your trip to Korea? What should you get at Namdaemun or Myeongdong? Korea has a lot of cool things to buy. But sometimes it's hard telling the difference between what's Korean and what's just "Asian".

We had the kids from 9A-9P and camp had to be fun!
Swimming, sports, role-playing rooms, noraebang room and lots of games in-between to bribe the kids with if they ever got bored. The only stipulation was the end project being a staged "musical".
And it had to be good enough to match the high expectations of high-level corporate Korean parents who work in Seoul!

Not much has changed in this confession of who I am now and who I was at virtually all stages of my life!
Nothing hurts more than experiencing boredom-- in a job, at a party, a phone conversation or a movie I'm watching. Boring is downright painful, so please don't ask me to sit through it.

Word haikuTeacher writes a word on the white board (i.e. United States)
You can create teams or pass out a blank sheet of paper and have the students do this individually. Have them create as many words as they can with the word given. The team or person with the most words wins.
* The great thing about this game is that it will keep them quiet and busy on their own for a while.

This video is a bit post-mortem, but I thought I'd share it anyways. It's from my summer camp experience last summer and it's our first run-through of our 4 minute Peter Pan musical play. My third graders did surprisingly good and I'm proud to have worked at that camp.

|From the Korean Drama, "Sweet Spy".|
Korea has a weird obsession with the U.S. and using ENGLISH. It's a weird status symbol for them and in K-DRAMAS, only wealthy & successful people travel or study in America.
So, I caught this scene glitch in a K-drama show. It's NOT meant to be a joke. For those who aren't AMERICAN, they make a reference to SEARS, like it's a high class store.
For Americans, Sears is known as a department store with cheap non-brand clothes and accessories.
