I talked to Nicole and suggested the solution of merging the two similar classes. She was very happy and said it was a "brilliant" idea. She said normally the two types of classes I was suggesting would never be combined, but given the reasons I provided, and as long as it would make me happy, she'd do it.
Now we're headed off to a weekend-long retreat with our school. The goal is to get the foreign staff and Korean staff communicating more. I think there are tons of team-building activities and we're even going paint-balling. (I have to admit, I'm a little worried about that part.)
Anyway, it should be a good time and we'll be sure to take a lot of pictures!
