Not what I meant…

Posted by Brian on October 1, 2007

So I’m in class tonight and the girl sitting opposite me is a Korean woman studying TESOL so she can be an English teacher back home. During the break, I try some small talk…

“Hello… what part of Korea are you from?”

“South”

???

I guess she figured I was asking her if she was North or South Korean, while I was assuming she was from the south and was just inquiring about her hometown there.

Anyway, after we got over the miscommunication, I found out her family is from Ilsan and that she went to Dongkuk University in Seoul. She was quite amazed by my knowledge of Korean geography and food.
