I spent a lot of time with Korean adults this past week, which is sort of rate. Mostly I am around Korean kids who aren’t always the most interesting conversation partners, either in Korean or en English. At any rate, I learned something new.Of course, you are familiar with the grading system A, B, C, D, F. Well, they use the same system here, and as students are prone to do, have come up with their own special code for the meaning of these letters. Korean students have come up with a “ridiculous” (their word) acronym for that grading system. Remember, the grades DO mean the same thing as they do in the western world, but in the angst of their failure, and to celebrate mediocrity, students have developed the following joke.
