Posted on Thu, Dec 15, 2016 @ 02:23 PM

As my first year teaching in Korea came to a close this November, I was prompted with an offer from my branch to extend my contract for another year. I was very flattered by the offer, because it is not guaranteed that a branch will want to extend your contract. An offer of extension is pretty much a compliment of the work you’ve done over the past year.  In this blog I will tell you why I decided to sign on for another year of teaching with ChungDahm Learning.

Posted on Tue, Nov 08, 2016 @ 03:28 PM

Before I begin, I just want to let my readers know that each ChungDahm location has a different set of rules when it comes to preparing for classes. The reason for this is because different locations teach different courses. Depending on the classes being taught at your location, you may need to prepare a lot of information for your class or you may not.  Below I will talk about how I go about preparing for my day of teaching and encourage my fellow teachers to do the same.

Posted on Wed, Aug 17, 2016 @ 04:31 PM

Learning a new skill, like teaching, and moving to a new county can be rather intimidating! Once you complete your training week at Chungdahm Learning, you are shipped off to a whole new life and job. All of a sudden you are on your own and expected to teach a class full of eager and excited young learners. However, new teachers don’t realize that there are plenty of veteran teachers at their branch, who have already gone through everything they are experiencing and possibly have three to six years of teaching knowledge. These teachers at CDL are known as Veteran teachers and if you are lucky they might be ready to help you out and be more than happy to share their wisdom and expertise.
