Heh, funny stuff. I've always wanted to go to Japan, and have thought about teaching english there. Kind of sparks my interest again. All I know of Japan is from anime:p.

[edit]Hmm, that Kancho stuff sounds a bit too familiar. Koreans do that as well, except it's called "ttong-jip". Some of my friends from Korea do that, and I could never understand why :???: .

Well as a testimony as being here in Japan, not one of the kids Kancho'd me here. Any attempts of it also fail because I never leave my back open for them to get a shot at it.

The only sad part I have to say is that the quality of learning is just not here in Japan (for English anyways). The kids do not have any real discipline and they see it as a social club (mainly the kids) more than learning English. The adults from highschool and up seem to have more seriousness to the issue and so do their best from the classes I teach.

Also the place where I am teaching does not seem to have any structure (rules and discipline) and they expect the kids to improve their English... well all I have to say is that unless things change nothing will improve.

Other than that I read Az's editorial because I see it as a way to relieve the stress I had after teaching the kids English. I will probrably decided to meet him sometime during the summer break assuming nothing screws me over while I am here.

Does this mean I should take it out? *pops* Sorry cool..
yes, you should, but watch out and don't play with lighter when you do it. Combination of gas that has gathered plus some sparks... could be dangerous :evil:

i didnt understand this part... But if it was funny enough to KO a bunch fo teachers i wanna know it :D And the part i dont understand is whats so funny about kid calling the bridge gay bridge ?

These are things that kids have hit me with at some point in the classroom. Most are in English, or at least their best attempt. I swear I'm not making any of this up.

During a quiz game, I asked "What's the name of the famous bridge in San Francisco?" They always guess "Rainbow Bridge" because that's the name of the famous bridge in Tokyo. Um, no. Not quite.

One boy completely surprised me though. He slowly and timidly approached me, looked up, and hit me with his guess - "Gay Bridge."

There's no way he could've said that.

I lean in closer and ask him to repeat it. Sure enough - "Gay Bridge."

There have been very few times in my life when I laughed so hard I couldn't stand. But this was one of them. My Japanese teacher asked me what was wrong, and when I finally managed to spit it out he joined me on the floor. He explained it to the students later and they were floored. Then he told it to the teachers room, and they were KO'd by it too.

If you think about it though, he wasn't too wrong.

Well, I guess Kancho can be roughly compared to a wedgie in America.

I think it has something to do with that game called Bridge....actually there are a bunch of 'Gay Bridge' leagues in Europe :p
The South London Area Gay Bridge Group was founded in August 1985 to provide a venue for gay people to meet on a regular basis to play Rubber Bridge and generally to meet new gay friends and socialise.

Sorry Kirby, but the real reason it is so funny is because San Francisco is known for having lots of gay men. I'm not sure if this is actually true, but that is the general consensus.

That's because San Francisco is usually considered the "gay capital" of the US.

BTW, I've also seen the Golden Gate Bridge being called the "Golden Gay Bridge" :lol:

EDIT: Damn, The Captain beat me to it :p
