Why? Because I can't speak Korean and the student has clearly mastered pretending to understand English. I don't know all the details yet, but my friend (the one about to put me on a spit and roast my sorry expletive for giving out her phone number) got a call from the student's mother.
I have to meet with her later this evening. My friend, not the student or the mother. Either way, I can't shake this feeling of impending doom.
