No Summer Vacation this year

Korean students love to play

The streets leading to high schools in Seoul are filled with game rooms, PC Rooms, karaoke, boutiques and trinket stores. High school students make up a big part of the local business in many areas.

For a couple months these students had complete freedom to go to classes and walk around after school and play. Now summer vacation is near and they are told to stay at home. The spread of covid19 infection in Korea has doubled in the last couple weeks and continues to increase among young people.

Seoul is under Lock Down

The Seoul area is under lock down now. Practically speaking this means no social gatherings of three or more people. In other words it's you and your one of choice. For schools this means teachers will teach students on Zoom and 1/3 of teachers will have to work from home teaching classes on Zoom. For many of these teachers that means they will be home with their own kids at the same time.

Where is my vacation?

For me, this means I will be staying home for summer vacation except for those days I am teaching. Somehow teaching classes of ten students passes as an essential meeting so I will be meeting with students for a couple weeks this summer. If the rules change I will be teaching those students from Zoom as well.

This year summer vacation is beginning to look a lot like last year... No swimming pools, no beach, no amusement parks or water parks and no visit to America. Some are going to the nearby providences where there is no lockdown, but because I am a foreigner I will get a lot of media if I come to school with covid19. Very risky business.

Boys will be boys

For amusement I can walk around the roof and look at the clouds. It's not bad. It may be a very welcomed break. Or it might be a mad house depending on how I take care of my own two boys.

One is 14 and the other is 10. Any ideas for projects during summer break. I think if I just let them go it's going to be a terrible summer. The little one is having trouble with reading so he needs some practice. He likes piano and drawing. The older one likes exercise.

Think of something good these boys can do staying at home without fighting and I will upvote your comment anywhere from 1 POB to 3 POB.

This Covid 19 is getting worse and threatening by the day, another lock down at Seoul? I think I've heard it somewhere before now, it's confirmed now.

So sorry, you won't be having your normal summer vacation. It's just for the now, we hope that the wave of the killer virus will go away soon.

As for your sons, it's cool that you know the what they love to do and I'll suggest you allow them to explore what they love to do especially the younger one who loves piano and drawing.

You can give him a task to complete daily, maybe a progress check on his piano mastery or an image to draw for your own rating.

As for your son who loves to exercise, hmm I don't know, maybe you can ask him to learn something else around the house while he exercise to his heart content.

Just saying, thanks for listening 😃

The pandemic is getting serious the more and it as result into alot of restrictions from the government just to minimize the rate at which the rate at which the disease spread,I must say it is not only affecting those in seoul only ,it is a global one already in which some countries have been able to overcome it to a limit,but some countries are still fighting war against the disease,but of all I must say irrespective of what this might have stopped us from doing,we should be calm and remember that the best thing right now is to find a way to stop the spread of this deadly virus and we need to take to all measure that ad been laid down for us to control the virus

Thanks for your reply @pthker2010. I suppose there are those in the process of distributing vaccines as quick as they can. How are things in your neighborhood?

Will this covid ever end? I wonder what kind of disease is it that it never wants to go away but keep increasing numbers everyday and making kids that had anticipated better things for their summer get stuck indoors doing boring things.
Your boys are extraordinary their way you know! Think you should let them do what they have passion for. If one loves piano then let him have a piano and if the other loves exercise you can make him follow a tutor online. At least it could make them enjoy their summer a little even if it can't be compared to if they were oportuned to go outdoors.
