- I'm mostly sticking to the cursive and playing catch up from vacation days missed, exams, etc. I don't know how some classes are behind! It's nothing really in my control though so not much I can do except catch them up. I did start a filler type Konglish lesson for a few classes that I have seen every week. It was a fun little game lesson where they learned different English words and how they related to Korean words. It was fun.
- The debate club has been pretty good too. My co-teacher is a bit worried about how they will do, but I think they can do well! They wrote some essays in the standard 5 paragraph persuasive style and they were pretty good for their first time. It's kind of funny because they all have the elements of a good essay but they are all missing certain things. Like the one is actually a great writer, but his artgument is the weakest while another had nice points but he didn't have the 5 paragraph structure at all. But I'm having them read and critique each others so hopefully that will help a bit.
- I'm going to Jeju tomorrow!! I'm really stoked! I'm heading out on a plane from Yeosu to go to Jeju for the annual spring Fulbright conference! Yay!!!! I've been wanting to go to Jeju basically since I landed in Korea haha. I will finally be able to go! It's going to be great to see everyone again too. I am going to be leading a small workshop where we can critique each others cover letters and resumes and about post-Fulbright jobs and stuff. Hope it'll be great!
