Remember that behind the scenes footage we did on our episode of Running Man, where Nichkhun gives Martina’s students a shout out? That was meant to be seen by Martina’s students for their school festival, which just happened last week. Here’s a video of the school festival, but not including Martina’s students reactions to seeing Nichkhun. Unfortunately, we were not there when the video was being shown, but someone else does have a video of it. We’ve asked them for the video, and hopefully, someday soon, we’ll be able to post that up as well :D
Now, Korean School Festivals are really quite an awesome experience. Students transform their classrooms into something different for a day, like a cafÃ©, or a nail salon, or a game room, or a haunted house. You can go from class to class and experience something different and fun in each room. So we did! We brought the camera along for the ride. We couldn’t bring it into the haunted house, unfortunately, because it was too crowded in there and way too dark anyways. Too bad!
Also, students do performances on stage, be it singing a song, playing instruments, or doing a dance. They practice for a long, long time, all for this day. Martina and one of her co-teachers decided to do something similar. They, too, had a performance for the students. Unfortunately, we can’t put it on YouTube because of copyright issues (the music in the background isn’t ours), so we’ll be posting it on our Facebook Fan Page tomorrow. Huzzah!
Anyhow, it’s stuff like this that makes teaching English in Korea so awesome, and they’re definitely some of the fondest memories we’ll have of our students. Finally, as always, big thanks to JB and Annie from [ë‹‰ì‘¤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for the Korean subtitle translations! Hopefully they won’t get bored of translating any time soon. Bless em!
