Ive got so many but heres one that threw me for a loop:

 

last year I worked at the worst girls only hs in Hiroshima. A bunhc of enjokosai dirty girls. In my first class with each gumi we just did introductions and what not, I did mine as an example, then had my girls do them. In a class of 23 girls, 8 asked me to sleep with them that night. Sure, I thought they were taking the piss... but for the rest of the year I was asked the same thing almost daily eek.gif :rolleyes: clap.gif

There`s a kid in a kindergarten i `teach` at once a month whose mother is korean and father is japanese. He`s lived in japan all his life and obviously his first (and i think only) language is japanese. He`s been at the kindergarten for 3 years so the teachers know him pretty well.

 

Yesterday the teachers asked me how to say `hold hands` and `grab his hand` in english so they could use it to tell him when they crossed the road ??????

When I was a kid I used to think that there were cherry blossoms in Japan all year round. I was really surprised when people told me that they only lasted a couple of weeks. That's marketing for ya! lol.gif

I was once asked why I spoke English?

 

I explained because I was from the UK...

 

 

...and as if to add insult to injury, the person in question proceded to expalin to me that they had thought I was Iranian...I had known them for 3 months or so.

Heh, last night I explained that australians use g'day a lot, and got the surprised reply of 'oh, so you speak australiago, eigo, and nihongo... anything else?'

 

Heh, it made me laugh, but it was mostly due to my own nihongo, which is still fairly rudimentary.
