“She took the meme and turned it into a learning opportunity. That’s the power of a good teacher,” was one commenter on this widely shared video.
We don’t even need to explain what follows because Jasmeen Kaur’s original expression while discussing a salwar suit is widely used on the Internet: “So beautiful, so elegant.” Users of social media, celebrities, politicians, musicians, and people from all walks of life have shared videos with the widely used “just looking like a wow” soundtrack. An English instructor now capitalized on the craze and used the catchy phrase to teach her students grammar.
“Ma’am you are just looking like a wow,” reads the caption written along with the video shared on Instagram. The video opens to show the English teacher reading the viral phrase from a piece of paper. She then engages her students by asking the part of speech of the words ‘beautiful’ and ‘elegant’ belong to. Next, she asks about the word ‘so’ used in the phrase, and goes on analysing each segment of the viral phrase.
On Instagram, the video was posted three days ago. Since then, it has been incredibly popular and viral, accumulating over 18.4 million views to date. Many even poured their thoughts onto the video’s comments area.
“End of trend now,” posted an Instagram user.
Another added, “She took the meme and turned it into a learning opportunity. That’s the power of a good teacher.”
“Ma’am wore a laddu peela dress!” commented a third while referencing the video where Kaur uses the words’ laddu peela’ to describe the yellow colour.
A fourth shared, “Don’t mess with your English teacher.”
“The real wowism,” remarked a fifth.
A sixth wrote, “We need teachers like her.”
