Last year, when I was living in Bavaria, I was teaching English.
I’m doing the same thing this year, but I’m living in a new city (Dresden).
The students at my school last year liked me….well enough, you could say.
To be honest, I think they could take me or leave me.
The students at my school this year, however….
I think they have mistakenly confused me for a celebrity.
They are hilariously obsessed with asking me SO many questions.
Questions in German, questions in English….
questions in the classroom, questions on the playground…
questions before, during, after class…
you get the point.
Here are some of my favorites that have been asked so far:
- “Do you like to read books about crime?”
- “Do you like your sisters or do you hate your sisters?”
- “Is that a dress you are wearing or is it a skirt PLUS a shirt?”
- “Do you have SO many shoes at your house in America?”
- “Have you ever seen a pencil this small?”
- “Can you eat lunch with us in the cafeteria? Do you want us to save you a seat?”
- “Do you see SO many Hollywood stars at home?”
- “’Why do you have a big scar on your hand?”
- “Have you ever met Justin Bieber?”
- “You said your parents have 4 dogs…. which one is your favorite and which is your least favorite?”
- “My friend wants to know if she can take a picture of you. …well, can she?”
These questions came from my 6th grade girls.
I teach 12 English classes a week,
ranging from the 5th grade to the 10th grade level.
And while I like all the classes….
these girls might make me laugh the most.
I think you can understand why.
