Teaching Koreans: Common English Mistakes Made by Koreans

So I happened upon this blog and video, "Common English Mistakes Made By Koreans #1", by chance. I think it's just brilliant and very funny.  The video is done by On My Way to Korea. Enclosed is a link to the actual site with an English transcript of what Matt is saying (as he's speaking in Korean).

I used this video for my teachers as a warmup, but it easily ended up being the entire class when my teachers wanted to practice and to clarify other words!  These are also helpful for recognizing mistakes our Korean students make.

I wish he did more vids on the matter but this seems to be the only one. Enjoy and if you like it, feel free to leave a comment on his blog.
