Hello friends! Today is my two month-versary here in Korea, so you know what that means! Time for this month review of the comedic gold that is Engrish. This months examples come mostly from the dentist’s office and a delightful tote bag stand in the subway station. Enjoy!
We’ll start at the dentist. They tried really hard to make sure their English speaking patients felt comforted, so I really do appreciate the attempt.
Priceless. Now the totes bags…
And now one of my very favorite that I found last month, but somehow neglected to put on my blog.
To be fair, with as much fun as I poke at these examples of Engrish, I have to hand it to how hard the adults here are trying to make sure their children are bilingual. I’ll leave you with this picture of Edutainer Matt playing hangman with some Korean Kidlets outside Tom N Toms. This round, the little boy made up the word for Matt to guess. I challenge Americans of his age to spell “complication” perfectly like this kid did. Way to go, bud, you make us feel like we might actually be making a difference here.
