One morning while teaching a very low level Talk Time 2 class, I noticed one of my students named Irene drinking Denmark Morning Cereals Milk. As a cereal lover, (I ate Cheerios for breakfast this morning) this drink fascinated me. "So what is this drink?" I asked my student. She replied that the milk tastes just like your eating milk and cereal.
Of course I thought this was crazy. Why on earth would I want to drink a carton of cereal flavored milk? The idea is just too crazy for me. Plus, if you look closely at the carton this milk cereal stuff says it is blended with nineteen cereals! Who on earth would want to taste nineteen different types of cereal at the same time? So of course I promised my student I would have to try this milk sometime. Meanwhile I completely forgot about this magic milk cereal.
Two weeks later on December 1st I started a new month of classes. I showed up to teach a Talk Time 3 class not knowing who would be in my course. The students didn't even know who their teacher was going to be until I walked in the door. And behold, the second I enter the classroom Irene has a box of Denmark Morning Cereals Milk on her desk. She proudly offered it to me and I accepted it with gratitude and excitement!
This milk cereal drink can be purchased in Korea at pretty much any convenience or grocery store for about 2,000 won depending on location.
