ZOMBIE ATTACK: Survival Plans


The best of the best, and the funniest of the worst.

The Winners

Class 2.4’s winner:

“Dig the ground by hand And make a spear with bamboo And stick it into a hole. And cover the hole with blanket. Cut spam like brains and skins. Hanging on the hoop and swing attract zombie and then they will go to hole and die.” – Followed by a picture.

Class 2.4’s Runner-Up:

“Bamboo because we can build a castle. Shotgun because we can kill zombie from a distance. Spam and kimchi because we can eat this and these are not decayed.”
[Teacher’s note: Main reason they did not win was because they forgot the shotgun runs out of bullets. They then said they’d use the bamboo from their castle as spears, but then they wouldn’t have a castle anymore.]

Class 1.1A’s winner:

“Tool 1 – Dog:
he can attract zombies with his fresh brain!
Tool 2 – Flame Thrower:
we can burn them to the ash!!
Tool 3 – Shotgun
Zombies are sieged by us. We can shoot them in distance.
Tool 4 – Chainsaw
We can hang it on the wall and kill zombies or it can explode!”
[They verbally explained they would use the dog’s brain to lure the zombies into a trap and set them on fire. They could also make the chainsaw explode by using the flamethrower. Any zombies that escaped they would pick off at a distance with the shotgun.]

Class 1.1A’s Runner Up:

“Tool 1: Flame Thrower
Because it’s powerful, easy to use.
Tool 2: Dog
Because it can bite, they’re trained. We can eat it when we are hungry. Not lonely.
Tool 3: Wood and nails
Because we can make fire.
Tool 4: Rope
Because we can tie them.

Plan: We can train and order dog to make zombies together [to gather them together] and bite them Meanwhile we tie them and throw woods on the floor Make fire!! with flame thrower. camp fire!!”
[Main reason they didn’t win was they didn’t take into account that the dog could turn into a ZOMBIE DOG.]

Class 2.2’s Winner:

“Tools 1. Blanket
Tools 2. Axe
Tools 3. Chainsaw
Tools 4. Kimchi

We cover blanket and go to Teacher 영수 (Young-su, my co-teacher). And he must be angry. We girp [give?] the axe and chainsaw to Teacher 영수. And we run away. And in case we disguise like zombie with kimchi soup. Then Teacher 영수 kill the zombie.”

“Chainsaw: Because it is strong power.
Axe: Because it is strong power. we can use this to cut off zombie’s head.

Class 2.5’s Winner:

“Spam – Because we can eat by flamethrower and chainsaw.
Chainsaw – we can cut the spam to cook. and we can chop the z’s head.
Flame Thrower – we can cook the spam and zombie. if the fuel run out of  we can use spam’s oil.
Wood and nailgun – we can make our home to live in. And we can make baseball bat by using chainsaw. We can play baseball with z’s head.”

Class 2.5’s Runner-up (just barely):

And whip -> Zombie.”

The [Funny] Zombie Victims

    […] Class 1.6A consists of 12 boys from homerooms 1.6 and 1.7. They are some of the liveliest and quirkiest boys I teach in terms of personality, but also really respectful. I’ve got two jokers in the front right of the classroom who have a good enough grasp on English that they have an almost American sense of humor. I’m trying to think of an example that would be funny after the fact, but the only one I can think of is from that group’s zombie survival plan. […]

안녕하세요! My name is Emily and when I started this blog I had received a 2010 – 2011 F*lbright grant to teach English in South Korea.  I then decided to apply to renew my grant, so I am now staying in Korea until July 2012. This blog is not an official F*lbright Program blog, and the views expressed are my own and not those of the F*lbright Program, the U.S. Department of State or any of its partner organizations.

I graduated from the University of Mary Washington with a degree in Philosophy Pre-Law and Classical Civilizations, and found myself 3 months later teaching English at SGHS. The town that I taught in, SG, is a small town of 12,000 people, an “읍” (eup) rather than a “시” (shi – city), and though it was sometimes hard teaching in such a small town I really enjoyed the unique experience of being the first foreign teacher SGHS had ever had. I lived in the largest part of the county which is significantly bigger (40,000 people) than the town the school is situated in, but is also considered rural by Korean standards.

During my second grant period (2011-2012) I decided to change schools and I currently teach at CPHS which is located in an even smaller town than previously, in Jeollanamdo.

This blog is meant to serve as a reflection not only of being a Native English Speaking teacher in Korea, but also of living as a foreigner in rural Korea.
