“Most memorable experience in South Korea? Oh, hands down, my EFL class’s production of Harry Potter. I used to be a drama teacher back home before I started TEFLing, and believe me, you haven’t seen ‘theatre’ until you’ve seen Harry Potter written, directed, and performed by 14 year old Korean kids.
Honestly, the whole play was hilarious! ‘Harry’ had borrowed his grandfather’s prescription pebble lenses to get the right look, and could barely see 7 inches in front of him, and tripped over everybody and everything. Dumbledore, performed by a 14 year old whose voice had not yet broken tried to project in this deep voice that would turn into a squeak mid-sentence. And our Voldemort was so excited, he kept grinning happily from ear to ear as he went about his sinister plans! Even poor Hermione, who was excellent in the role, finally gave up and started giggling! But everybody just had a terrific time.”
