ESL Warm-Up Activities

Exciting news! I’ve just released a new book on Amazon, 39 ESL Warm-Ups: For Teenagers and Adults. Warm-Up Activities are awesome, if you didn’t know that already. They get your students active, engaged and speaking English right from the beginning of the class.

In case you’re the type of person who likes to try before you buy, here is an ESL warm-up activity from that book. This small talk ESL warm-up is a great way to get your students having fun while speaking English.

Small Talk ESL Warm-Up Activity

You can use this activity for high-beginners to advanced students, but you’ll have to adjust the length of the conversations. Print off this grid, one per every 4 students.

Small Talk Grid

Put students into pairs, with 2 pairs in one group (4 students total). The first pair chooses a topic such as “this morning” and must talk about it for 2 minutes (advanced), 1 minute (intermediate) or 30 seconds (beginner). The other team is the “timer” and can use their cell-phones to do this.

If the team can keep up a conversation about this topic for the full time, they get to mark that topic on the board with either an “X” or “O,” with the goal being three in a row, which equals one point. If they can’t do it, there is no penalty but they don’t get to mark that square on the board. The game is essentially S-O-S/Tic-Tac-Toe. Then, the next team chooses a topic and the game continues.
For a short activity, the winner can be the first team with one row of three squares.

For a longer game, continue for a certain amount of time (10 minutes is good) and the winner is the team with the most rows.

Procedure for Small Talk ESL Speaking Activity:

1.Print off the small talk grid, one per every 4 students.

2.The first pair chooses a square and must talk about that topic for a set amount of time. If successful, they mark the board with an “X” or “O.” The game continues with the next team choosing another square (or the same one if the other pair was unsuccessful).

3.The goal is to get three squares in a row or the most rows, depending on how long you want to play.

A Visit to Anchang Village (안창마을)

Printer-friendly version



 

Over the years I’ve been told that Anchang Village (안창마을) was a hidden hillside neighborhood with colorful houses and art on the streets, very similar to -but smaller than- Gamcheon Culture Village (감천문화마을). I think its artful days are mostly over as most of the houses are painted completely in pastel. 

When I got off the bus, I walked all the way up the hill to the base of (what I think is) Sujong Mountain (수종산). Along the way, a little girl ran out of her house and shouted after me, in Korean, “Where are you going?” She even held my hand and walked with me up the hill as I told her I was looking for graffiti art. She said there wasn’t much and quickly ran off as fast as she appeared.

I really enjoyed the view of Busan from the base of the mountain. After a few moments of rest, I walked back down the hill about half a kilometer, taking pictures of the few pieces of street art I saw. I enjoyed the peaceful streets which are a stark contrast from the urban Busan I know. There aren’t any chain restaurants or even any coffee shops on that hill. The Koreans I saw were beautiful, but dressed simply and not representative of the makeup and plastic surgery trends I often see in my neighborhood.

Then, when I was tired of walking in the sun, I rode minibus 1-1 back down to the hill to drop me off at the closest subway station, Beomnaegol (범내골역 [line 1]). 

Address: Beomil 4(sa)-dong, Busan

Directions: From Beomil Subway Station (line 1), take minibus 1-1 near exit 5. Get off at the last stop and immediately transfer to mini-bus 1 (or walk up the hill after mini-bus 1-1).

Luminar Neptune First Look

Printer-friendly version

With the sad and slow death of my beloved NIK Efex, there is a light on the horizon. That light is coming from Neptune. Not the planet but the recent iteration of Macphun’s editing platform Luminar. Recently, this platform has been creating a ton of buzz around the photography world and I decided to give it a look.

Now I must make it clear that I love lightroom and I am not looking at something to replace it. What I am looking at with Luminar is a way of taking my photos to the next level. By that I mean that I want to create images that are detailed, colourful, and evoke some sort of feeling. This means that I am not looking to simply document a moment like a street photographer but rather create an image that reflects the vision that I have. If you are looking at simply taking pictures of people waiting for their bus in black and white, read no further.

Preparing for Blast Off

One of the things that I like most about Luminar is the fact that it opens up like NIK did right from the “edit in” menu. In order to do this you have to open Luminar first and click on “luminar” at the top of your screen. Then it will bring up a list of compatible programs. All you have to do is click install and you are away for the races. Now, you can also just drag and drop from any window including your lightroom catalog. The difference is that with you instill the plugin, Luminar puts your awesome image right back into your library. This to me, is a great feature because I use lightroom to organize and backup my photos.

Ground Control

The combination of Lightroom and Luminar is an important one. I’ve called this “ground control” because my workflow starts with preparing the image inside of lightroom first. I do all the basic correction and adjustments and then allow Luminar to blast it off to the next level. I feel that this is a super important step as it makes sure that your image is adjusted in accordance to your camera and lens profile. With you touch down again (let me know if these space pun are getting old!) or apply your changes and are back into lightroom, you will not have your camera profile attached. So make those minor adjustments and corrections first before lift off (sorry… can’t stop).

Engaging the Thrusters

Taking a look around, you might think that this is just another set of flashy filters but it is not. Oh boy there is so much to Luminar that I am going to have to post more in depth material for the next little while. The basic rundown is that you have a number of presets that you can start from but I typically start with a workspace first. By default, the workspace is set to clear but you can change it to a number of preset workspaces. The cool part is that you can make your own workspace. Then you can just load that up and fire away. If you are looking for a specific look then do try the presets at the bottom.

If you are wondering what the difference between presets, workspaces and filters are, I will explain these right now. Presets are what you’d expect; they are preset looks made from filters that are already set at certain amounts. These are great starting points or a quick way to edit if you are short of time. If you have a specific look that you use, then you can create your own preset as well.

Workspaces are basically your custom develop panel. It is comprised of filters but they are all zeroed out. This is basically the same as working in lightroom but now you can choose what you want to see or pick from a set workspace. You can add filters to the workspace by simply clicking on the large “add filter” button at the bottom of the workspace area. If you are happy with your workspace then you can click on the workspace dropdown menu again and select “create new workspace” or click the little icon that looks like a + with some lines to make your changes a preset.

The filters are the backbone of luminar and are sets of editing modules similar to what you found in NIK’s Color Efex Pro. Each filter does a complex job and has a number of adjustments that can be made inside of each filter. Macphun  did a great job of explaining how each of these filters works with a pop out field that appears when you select a filter. Click the arrows that the top of the filter menu to hide it if you want.

Just What Do You Think You Are Doing, Dave?

One of the most talked about new filters for Luminar Neptune is the Accent – A.I. filter. This one filter uses artificial intelligence to analyze your image to make the best adjustments possible. Simply sliding the “boost” to the right will change your image dramatically and it’s usually fairly good. Another new filter is the Golden Hour filter that is similar to the Skylight filter in NIK color efex but it works so much better. It intelligently adds a pop of warm color to the images without making it look like the earth is going to burn up.

There are a lot of smart controls in the filters and I find that using luminar to be a very creative process. The filters do what they say they do but cannot fix a crappy image, so just keep that in mind. However, the filters do some amazing things. Take for example the polarizing filter. It actually does bring out the clouds and darken the blue skies in a way that doesn’t look like some of my early attempts at HDR.

Re-entry to Planet Lightroom

One of the things that I didn’t like about Aurora was the fact that when I went to import the image into lightroom it set up a whole new file structure. Now, this could have also been my fault and you might just have to play around with the settings to avoid that issue. However, Luminar is not just a standalone editor but it seamlessly integrates into  both Lightroom and Photoshop. For me this great improved the appeal of Luminar as stated earlier. I have a set file structure and I want all of my files organized by lightroom. Being able to pop the image back into lightroom easily is a big plus for me.


The bottom line is that Luminar is a great tool that not only fills the void that NIK left but can take your photos TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!!!! Sorry, sorry sorry, I’ve had a bit too much coffee today and I am having fun with these space puns. At any rate, Luminar does make a considerable difference in your editing and to your photos. It is a feature packed tool that can give your images the boost that they need to get noticed or achieve the look you’ve been trying to get.

With that being said I am not just recommending Luminar because of this, I truly feel that this is a product that every photographer should add to their digital toolbox.

I took my mom out to the Oryukdo Skywalk (오륙도 스카이워크) for her...

riding the bus






booties on our feet!









I took my mom out to the Oryukdo Skywalk (오륙도 스카이워크) for her first time. I’ve been going out there even before they opened on October 18, 2013. The area has been Korea’s National Cultural Heritage Scenic Spot No. 24 since October 1, 2007! The Seungdumal (승두말) area is known as the dividing point between the East Sea and the South Sea.

It’s a seriously long bus ride out there but it’s fun to watch the view as you go from hip downtown to small businesses to ocean-view. 

The skywalk is set up over a 35-meter-high coastal cliff. Just a heads-up, it’s kind of small: a 15-meter glass bridge of 24 plates in a horseshoe shape. It’s required to wear booties over your shoes as you walk. It’s a bit difficult to see through the thick glass, but it’s an amazing view all around you with the ocean waves crashing on the rocks. On a sunny day, you’ll see Tsushima Island (Daemado) in the distance.

It’s a fun and free experience in Busan, so why not?

Hours: Summer extended hours: 9:00am - 7:00pm, Off-season hours: 9:00am - 6:00pm

Address: 부산광역시 남구 오륙도로 137 (용호동)

I really like Dr. Kwon in Yeonsan, but I went to another dentist recently due to time constraints. Dr. Kang’s Dental Clinic in Seomyeon (강치과의원) is quite large but they’re really busy so I recommend calling ahead to make an appointment. 

Everyone speaks excellent English and Dr. Kang is efficient + quick. He doesn’t have much time to answer questions or explain things, but his staff is knowledgable and helpful. 

They gave me a discount for mentioning that I saw their advertisement in Busan Haps Magazine -so it might help you to do the same!

Address: 부산 부산진구 부전2동 160-6, Seomyeon, Busan

Directions: Seomyeon Subway Station, exit 2. You will walk forward one block and you’ll find their office on your left up on the 7th floor.

Break-Up Do’s and Dating Don’ts – Expat Dating Diaries

Expat Dating Don’ts and Break-Up Do’s

Co-P and I started having the inevitable (inevitable because he’s leaving Korea, not because he’s a cheater) break-up talk.  It would have been fine had it not been in Haneda airport 6 hours before our flight.  A few days later our fast, serious, fleeting, expat dating romance was over.  Little did I know then, he was already seeing (and sleeping with) someone else.  The confidence I had in our direct, communicative relationship was an absolute lie, and I feel pretty stupid having trusted him.  Because of the exciting, dramatic, and rocky way our relationship began, I felt like most of the time we were playing relationship chicken.  I had several trips lined up before meeting him.  He said he wanted to come, and without too many jokes or dares he booked flights.  I should have taken my own advice…

Looking back on our relationship (as shortlived as it was) I have a number of thoughts and feelings.  We are completely different people with a few key common interests (fitness, food, and expat dating, it seems).  Ultimately, we weren’t compatible romantically or with our timing.  He tried to limit me to 2 tourist attractions per day on our travels.  He wanted a 10 PM bedtime.  I wanted to soak up everything (including the nightlife) in a new city.  He followed the rules.  I wanted to renegotiate them.  There were so many times when I felt I couldn’t be as wild and outlandish as I wanted to be.  In some respects, that’s a really good thing.  Co-P pushed me to be the healthiest and strongest person physically I could be.  I was well-rested, too.  Ultimately, I got bored.  I think he did, too.

As much as I’m content with my life without him as my boyfriend, there are still moments that give me pause.  I miss having him as the friend I thought he was.  There are a lot of lessons that can be learned from every relationship, and expat dating is no different.  Take a look and see what you can extrapolate from every interaction.  Here’s what I’ve learned…

Expat Dating Don’ts

  • Don’t have your first few dates at favourite spots in your neighbourhood.  You’ll hate yourself going back to a memory you made together there every time you pass them.
  • Don’t invest yourself too much in the beginning…or really ever.  It’s important to keep a balance and your own social life.  Don’t be one of those people who gives up on your single friends when you’re coupled up.
  • Don’t ignore the majority of your friends saying bad things about him.  Especially don’t alienate them in favour of the ones who speak kindly.
  • Don’t ignore his ex gfs if they reach out to you.  There’s a reason they sound crazy.  That reason is probably that he hurt them something fierce.
  • Don’t let things move too quickly.  If he’s asking you to be exclusive on the third day you’ve met, maybe there’s another issue.  Pump the breaks if things are heating up a little faster than anticipated.  It might be exciting to jump into a new relationship, but you also might be left with the feeling that you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop.  He might have self-esteem issues, be self-indulgent, or just want to stir up drama.  Co-P posted about his new girlfriend the day before a trip we planned together.  (Super nice way to let me know you cheated, by the way…).  Expat dating is tough!
  • Don’t get hung up on past heartaches.  There’s a reason he’s not the one with you on this date!  Focus on this new person who wants to spend time getting to know you!

Expat Dating: Break-Up Do’s

  • Do let yourself have a mourning period.  Maybe you haven’t lost the love of your life, but you’re losing out on someone who has made an impact on it.  You’ll be ready when you’re ready.
  • Do:  It doesn’t matter if your mourning period is short.  If you are ready to get back out there then do it!
  • Do: Say YES.  If you get an interesting invitation then say yes!  Surprise yourself with new hobbies and activities.
  • Do: Meet new people!  It doesn’t matter if you want to get out on the dating scene right away or not, new people = new perspectives.  Isn’t learning what we’re born to do?
  • Do: Widen your net.  Meet people (new friends and prospects) you might not normally go for.  Everyone thinks they have a “type”.  If yours hasn’t been working for you, try something else!  Whether you’re an expat dating or just meeting new pals, there are plenty of us in a concentrated environment.  Go forth an experience new things!
  • Do: Look out for #1.  Take care of yourself first.  Don’t overextend yourself for someone who won’t go out of his or her way for you.

I’m not looking for the stars and the moon in another human.  I’m looking for a travel companion, good conversationalist, work-out buddy, party pal, and all around life partner.  I’m looking for someone who won’t deliberately hurt me (or put me at risk) because he’s started to stray.  Neptune has 13 moons.  Uranus has 27 (and they’re outta this world, girlfriend).  Our very own galaxy is full of stars and moons.  If you’re an expat in Korea like me, you’ve likely circled the globe at least once or twice.  He (or she) is out there, but you’ve gotta make it through the Star Wars first.
