Today’s Korean Phrase: Yeong-eo Ma-eul= English Village
We finally had about a week or so of really nice sunny days, so I was able to get out and take some pictures of my surroundings. I thought now might be a nice time to take you faithful readers on a photographic journey through the campus I now call home: Gyeonggi English Village!
You’ll start your day here driving into the lovely little town of Paju
So, you know, we’re legit. Next we’ll take a walk down Main street
Lots of shops for you to enjoy along Main street, like the English Book Store, EV Gift shop, and so much more!
Since you got here nice and early, you might want to stop at Tom ‘N Toms for a cup of coffee, tea, or blended Tominccino. We edutainers spend WAY too much money here. If you’re lucky, there might just be some edutainers waiting outside Tom ‘N Toms to play some outdoor activities with you.
It is a lot of fun to do this 25 minute show because we get to play with the audience quite a bit. On your way out you’ll see little signs telling you where all the Edutainer’s imaginations take them. Mine is a little shout out to Arizona!
After some moments of reflection, you might want to check out some of the classes the One Day Program teachers have to offer. They will bring you to real life situations like Post Office and Bank Visits to teach you how to converse in English
You can find these classrooms in the Exhibition Hall
Also in the Exhibition Hall you’ll find the Library. This is where the Edutainers host a 45 minute game show! I’m designing the show for next season based on Science and Technology, but this season the game show is all about fairy tales. Perhaps you’d like to play the game with this cute little Edutainer?
After three weeks of being this Girl in Green (my character was the “brave” part of the Princess on her journey) I now play the uptight narrator trying to tell the story of Jack and the Beanstalk while dealing with my obnoxious Narrator in Training
Here are some more production photos for you to enjoy. When you see the shots with all the fairy tale characters, I play the Hare from Tortoise and the Hare so I’m in the white track suit.
If you’d like to come up and visit me, I live here in the Jupiter staff housing building
I live next to the EV Kids building. We have no idea what happens in there, but outside the building is this happy sign with all the lovable EV characters! You can sing the GEV theme song, after which this blog is titled.
It’s not the best song in the world…
Come back soon! You’ll want to tune in next week for a new installment of Engrish of the Month!
**Note: In case you were wondering, I got my stitches out today and my mouth has recovered well. The doctor said it would take about a month for my mouth to recover fully, so i guess I still have an excuse to eat all this pudding I stocked up on…**
