More Crappy Ingrish

Posted in Korean language, Photo diary by 노강호 on November 26, 2010

Crappy Korean English is great especially when practiced by schools that specialize in teaching English as a foreign language.


even better with a pint of Cass

one of my student’s shirts

Almost as good as my all time favourite, ‘Milky Boy’

Fantastic! Great advice… if you can actually decipher it

    At first I misread your headline as “Creepy English,” but that works too.

      Hi Breda. Thanks for your visit. By the way, I liked your list of presents on Chris’ site.

    You’ll be pleased to know that the Tom N Toms here in Sydney comes complete with poorly worded English as well. It’s clearly a brand trademark.

      Here we refer to ‘bad’ English, especially in advertising, as grocers’ English. Actually, I know a number of students with better written skills than native English speakers of the same age. And I don’t have one English friend can speak a second language even to a basic level.
