HUAIROU, Beijing Province:
Korean classes were fine. So boring, but fine! The elementary classes were a bit more exciting - although I did have an argument with Tap - what a typical fifteen year old!
He wanted to play a board game, and I said no, but he went to get one anyway, and then tried to set it up and play it in the lesson! When I convisgated it, he sulked for about 10 minutes and then refused to answer any of my questions.
Then in the break him and Jack tried to use a magnifying glass to set fire to one of the textbooks... which made them both sulky when I gave them both minus points!
In the second lesson, Anthonio (one of my Intermediate students who is also in my Chinese classes) wanted to join my class because his scene wasn't being filmed. His English is pretty much fluent, and it was actually really nice to have someone in the classroom who was able to translate any difficult words and who was actually on my side - he kept telling them to shut up and listen to me!
The charger for my phone has been very tempramental recently, and last night it wouldn't charge up my phone at all, so decided to buy a new phone. Considering everything in England is 'Made in China' I thought electrical stuff here would be way cheaper! The cheapest phone I found was 199元, it's pretty rubbish, but I can write chinese characters with it - which is cool!
Bought some wine and stayed in watching DVDs.
