Roll Call

You die! You Suck!

It feels really strange calling that out in class. But in fact, they are the names of two of my students this year; Yudai and Yusaku.

Classic indeed.

Make sure you pronounce it with a broad Australian twang!

Thanks Anon!

Hi Cont. Mmm.. now that would add an interesting twist to them

Hey Jason - "Aguri" (pronounced as "ugly" for anyone who doesn't speak Japanese), that's a bad one! Who in there right mind would call their kid Mayo, I mean, it's the same in Japanese! Oh, and looking forward to catching up on Friday ;)

I feel sorry for the poor bastard whose name gets called out before Yusaku, especially if the name is Aguri.

Had a great girl last year called "Bian" which is Japanese slang for "lesbian". Way to go mum and dad!

Also you gotta love "Fuka".

Aguri! Fuka! Haha!

Hey Billy! Yep, that's a thought. Maybe I can seat a kid that I don't like, in front of him, it would at least make me smile. A bit like how in one of our interview tests at school, we play some different tracks. I have added "You shit me to tears" to my playlist just to play for the kids that well.. shit me ;)

Hey Brad, I think some parents should be shot. I mean why, why would you choose a name like that?

Hey Anastasiac, glad you enjoyed ;)
