Don’t Wankourage Bad Behavior

| Japan | Learning | May 2, 2013

(I teach at an English conversation school in Japan. Some of my students are quite young (ages three to five). It’s parents day, so many of the parents are there to observe the lesson.)

Student: *yelling in Japanese* “Sensei! Do Americans really have giant w******?”

(I start cracking up because of the blunt curiosity of his question. I look over to his mother, who looks absolutely mortified.)

Me: *still laughing* “How about we start with our ABCs?”

(After the class, the student’s mother’s comment sheet simply said “I am so so sorry!”)
