thoughts on charisma man video?
I see the creators picked up on the "(some) English teachers can't spell" meme I apparently created out of whole cloth.
Okay. It's meant to be humorous, but I think it's a fair question to ask: How does this depiction stack up to reality? Is it fair? Is it grossly inaccurate? Does it make things worse for English teachers? Does this meme attract individuals whom we'd rather not come to Korea? And how would this relate to women who come to Asia to teach? Is there a "charisma woman"?
(HT to cmm, whom I'm never met, but if I did meet, I hope he says in a baritone voice reminiscent of James Earl Jones, "This... is cmm.")
Reading the comments section of this post is three and a half hours of my life I'll never get back.
