Japanese teenagers say the strangest things.........

So i have been having my first lessons with the new grade 10 students at my school. The school year starts in April here in Japan. Anyway, and here are two of the wonderful things that came out of my students' mouths.

"Laura is more cute than a Koala"
This was said when i was showing them a photo of me holding a Koala.

"I wish i had Laura's nose" (while gesturing that it stuck out more than her own)
This one was really strange. Through limited English and a little Japanese and even more sign language, I learned that my western nose is very desirable to the girl students. HOW WEIRD!!!!!! They think theirs are too flat.
