Welcome to Expacked (Issue #79)

July 8, 2010

I tried out a new website the other day and came away quietly impressed.  Learn English with Jokes and Riddles may look to be just another jokes website, however it’s been specifically design for use in the English classroom.   With over 300 jokes and riddles available, all you have to do is press the random button and watch as your class tries to rack their brain coming up with an answer.  This will be a fun activity in the classroom and a great way to generate conversation from all the students.Busan Temple NOT USED YET

Kiwi Young Leaders Korea – First Event

Here’s a story for the New Zealand readers.

A couple of enterprising English teachers from New Zealand have been busy forming a new group aimed at bringing together and helping other young Kiwi’s living and working in Korea.  As a Kiwi myself, I have been helping them out, where I can, and it’s great to see them kick it off with their upcoming first event.

Scheduled for July 17 at 4pm, to coincide with the New Zealand vs South Africa rugby game, Kiwi Young Leaders Korea will be showing the rugby and providing food and beverages at the Dicken’s Bar in Itaewon (above Scrooge Pub).  They will also use this time to introduce their group and it’s objectives.

I am excited about this group and look forward to meeting other Kiwis at this event.  It’s a cheap night (only 25,000 won) and, if anything else, at least you will be able to watch the big game without being squeezed between two South Africans in the pub below.  Click here for further details.

Here are the teaching related stories this week:
