Leo, lots of hard work went into this PPT. I have taught your "What is Beauty?" PPT before and it is really thought-provoking and interesting.

Konglish lessons always go over well with my S's and CT's and I am looking forward to teaching this one.

Thanks for posting this and also making the joke videos at the end.

Simply awesome!

Is it me or should the entirety of the english instructing program should work around correction of the Konglish language. Not disrespect the language concept but more so give the students enlightenment on the correct grammar use

thanks leo! awesome lesson. and thanks to panda, too. panda's worked very well for me last semester, and i'm sure leo's will too.

one question - how familiar are the students with the konglish words (ie. ice bar, potato, gag-man, "arbeit", etc.)? i was familiar with most of the konglish words in panda's lesson, but these one's i've never heard before... do korean people really use these often? or are they just generally less common than the other ones? just wondering... i have some high level students who might scoff if i tell them that french fries aren't called "potatoes"...

regardless, good work and thanks!

They're all common words. i'd go so far as to say that potato, ice-bar, gag-man and arbeit (pronounced: "아르바이트" - a-reu-ba-i-teu-. If you pronounce it "ar-bight", the basic present tense of the verb arbeiten in German, they'll have no idea what you're talking about) are words that are as common as their English equivalents in colloquial use back home.

The more confusing words are the shortened one. You'll have to put them into context before asking them to guess because words like "flash" and "self" are used correctly to refer to the flash of a camera and (one)self. However, they are also commonly used incorrectly to refer to flashlights and self-serve.

One thing I found very interesting while making this lesson was that a good majority of Konglish is identical to Japlish. My guess is that a lot of Konglish words were actually imported from Japan, but there's also a good chance that each language imports and adapts English words in such a similar manner that they'd exclusively result in the same mistakes anyways.

Hey Leo,

Awesome job on the PPT. This is actually my first time teaching one of your lessons. Anyway, so I used a hybrid of simple panda's and your Konglish PPT. The first class I taught it to was an advanced 1st year class. And they received it pretty well. They were into it and laughed at all the little commentaries and animations. The problem was with the lower level classes. While the understood the gist of it, I kind of put half the class to sleep before I got to the review which woke them up again.  :-[ I was trying to think of some way to liven it up besides using my goofy commentary. (It works well with high levels, but only some of the low levels get it.) Any suggestions or other activities or videos to liven it up?  ???

To be honest, I had/have the same problem. I just turned up the goofiness during the boring parts. My lessons are designed to target the middle level of middle school students, so unfortunately it comes off as too difficult for the lowest level students. But, to be honest, no matter what I do, the lowest level students are always left out. Even in my lowest level classes, I have students I can have decent conversations with and students that can't finish the alphabet. Broadly speaking, every teacher has to make the decision to either target the bottom, middle or top of their class. In my lowest level classes, that means that about 1/3 of my students simply can't keep up. I just accept it for what it is.

Perhaps try showing the Konglish Jokes 1 video at the beginning? That might wake them up and get them more receptive to the rest of the lesson.

Leo, I know you have left Korea, but I figured a bit of feedback might be nice. I ran your lesson this week and it  works well (especially the English everywhere section), but I changed a few areas which I felt didn't flow as well for me. I often found the 'huh?' part of the 'incorrect English' section a bit confusing for the students, so I cut out half of them. Also, I added Simplypanda's 'Koreans think' vs 'North Americans think' section because my students particularly like the idea of 'skinship' being 'made in Korea.' lastly, in the review section you put a picture of 2am not 2pm and I noticed the explanation at the bottom of your 'today's plan' slide is for your extreme the sports lesson. I have uploaded my version with these changes if anybody wants it.

*Edit* I also provided a direct link to the Konglish videos.

I love this lesson!  The Konglish was a huge hit with my high school kids, I haven't tried with middle school yet.  A couple Korean teachers enjoyed it too.

I made a follow up powerpoint reviewing a few of the terms, with a couple new vocabulary words, and 20 question game at the end.
