Exam Answers

We're on the downhill run to the holidays now! Yah! Just two more weeks to go and then about three weeks off. Not sure what we're doing yet, but thinking of going somewhere for a few days. Does anyone have any suggestions? I want to go somewhere I haven't been before and I've done the big sites and cities.

We've just finished the last exams for the year and there were some answers that brought a smile to my face. I thought I might share....

From Junior High, in answer to the questions;

"Who cooked your breakfast this morning?"

My breakfast eat my family.
My breakfast cooked my mother.
I cooked my mother.
Cock brakefast is my mother.
It's dreakfast cooked my mother this morning.
It my mother cook to for breakfast

Where did you do your homework last night?

I homeworked in the hoom last night.

Where did you brush your teeth yesterday?

I brashed my teachers in the bathroom.
I washed the thieves in the bathroom.
I brashed my pea in the bathroom.
I blash your teach in the kitchen.
I brush south in the bath yesterday.

In one question the high school students had to describe Sam's and my personalities. Some of the results were;

Melanie is cheerful. She is big voice and her smile is cute.
She is cheerful because her class time is very interesting and exciting.
She is like rabit because she is very praty.
Melanie is very cheerful, because she is loved everyone.
She is cheerful and easygoing, because her smile is beautiful and she makes us happy.
He is gentle. He always listens my boring and not-well-English story happily.

It's these kind of responses from students that make me want to lock myself in a room with a computer and pretend that I am still living in the west, where people can (usually) speak properly to me.

I used to live in Kanazawa, Ishikawa a few years back. It's an amazing place. Pretty damned cold in the winter, though. My best recommendation other than Kyushu.

Sounds like the students are trying to suck up with the last question! ;)

I was going to laugh at washing the thieves, but then I found that brashing the pea was funnier! Hee hee :o)

How about Matsuyama? Though you may have been there already...

Thanks for the comments and suggestions!

Contamination: Yeh, but I have to admit, these answers were more fun than reading hundreds of the same correct answers ;) Marking that many tests can get very dull at times.

Billywest: I did Kanazawa at Christmas a few years ago, I just loved it! Actually Kyushu is one place we're thinking of, I've never actually been off Honshu!

Brad: There is actually a fair bit of sucking up that goes on in our classes, I have one girl that's the best at it and doesn't try to hide it at all, she does it in such a fun way that it just makes me laugh.

Cluey: They're cute aren't they? One of the other native teachers said the other day that she wished she could mark on how much answers made her laugh rather than how correct they were. I haven't been to Matsuyama, I'll have to check it out.

it sounds like it is 40KM beyond the horizon of dull, and accelerating!

Still, you have your fellow bloggers to brighten your day!

Brad, sucking up? Of course students suck up! How else do they think they can pass? With their raw talent and ability? Hardly!!

LOL-they are priceless!

so funny...

we love Kyushu too but then we'll probably love any place with Ultraman in it!

My highschool penpal (back in the dark ages before email) was from Matsuyama. I looked it up and they have a castle there, it looks pretty! I have never been there though.
She used to start every paragraph with my name which I thought was such a cute thing to do! Also, she had really neat writing...
