Five Things I Wish I knew Prior to Teaching in Korea

Hello everyone, my name is Monica and I recently began teaching in Korea for ChungDahm Learning beginning this May.  To give you a little background about myself,  I have lived all over the United States and I received a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science from Drexel University and a Master of Marine Science from University of North Carolina Wilmington.  Since graduating I had spent several years looking for a relevant job until a friend recommended teaching in Korea. After doing some research I decided to apply through Aclipse.  

After going through the application process, which Aclipse was very helpful guiding me through, I was finally placed with a teaching position at ChungDahm's Mokodong branch which is located in Seoul.  Despite doing a lot of research and reading the other Aclipse blogs written by current teachers abroad, there were still some things that I learned upon my arrival that I wish I knew prior to departing for Korea.  In this blog I write about five things that you will most likely not find in your research about living in Korea.
