Two times a week I teach an “after-school” class. It’s called an after-school class, but it’s during my working ours. In my after school class I can teach anything I want. So in the next few months we are traveling across America, stopping at major cities, and doing a project based on the city. For example in New York City we are focusing on the Statue of Liberty and making statues of ourselves holding things that are important to us.
Throughout the year I am also focusing on holidays celebrated in America. And since it was Halloween, we had a Halloween party. I asked students to wear a costume a week in advance, but I wasn’t really confident anyone would. But the first girl in the door was wearing a yellow tiger suit. I was so excited. Turns out in Korea, these types of costumes are actually pajamas. I came as Kim Byung Man, a famous comedien who simply draws a fake mustache on his face when he is on stage. I can’t understand what he is saying, but I can tell it’s funny.
