Dear Students: Online Translators

Dear Students,

Please, please x 1,000 DO NOT use online translators. I am better off guessing what you are saying from the English you do know. And you do know more than you give yourself credit for. I know you are told time and time again to be the best that you can be, but don’t let that deter you from realizing how much you’ve learned so far. Don’t fear failure.

Instead fear Miss Alex when she looks at your translated document and either scrunches her face in confusion and yells at you with “Monde!” (몬데!  aka What is that?!). Not only do I get my point across with that one, but the look of surprise on your face due to the fact that I know Korean slang is pretty much priceless. 

Or in this case, as you were trying to finish your newspaper article and decided to do the unforgivable, Miss Alex could only laugh and take a picture. You got off easy this time. Because seriously, what online translator did you use that came up with eating dragons and children?


Miss Alex
