I will admit, managing is not for everyone and I don’t believe that anyone can become a manager, however if you are interested in growing with ChungDahm Academy, then becoming a Team Leader may be the first step for you.

How to Embrace Monsoon Season While Teaching in Korea

Posted on Thu, Jul 20, 2017 @ 03:42 PM

Umbrellas backwards, sopping wet pants and muggy gumboots...are what you can expect from Korea's Monsoon season. Monsoon season has begun in Korea, and the sudden downpour of an insane amount of rain, can have anyone swimming home.  Although monsoon may not be my favorite season in Korea, it doesn't me you need to stay inside your apartment all day waiting for the sun to come out. In this blog I will talk about not only ways to make sure you are prepared for monsoon season, but also some activities you can do during your time teaching in Korea.

A Visit to Seoul's Immigration Office

Posted on Tue, Dec 02, 2014 @ 09:57 AM

As it was the ending of my third year working in Seoul and for ChungDahm, it was time for me to make my dreaded one hour trek to the Seoul Immigration Office. For many first timers going to any immigration is a daunting task. Trying to get the right information prepared before going in itself is an event. So here is some advice that can help make this process as smooth as possible.

Seoul Halloween Store Satisfies All Your Spooky Needs

Posted on Wed, Oct 16, 2013 @ 01:06 PM

Halloween is easily the best holiday of the year. I associate it with the dawn of cooler weather, the holiday season, and great, scary times with friends. However, I was worried that Halloween in South Korea would be lackluster. Koreans don’t really celebrate All Hallow’s Eve. But never underestimate a large population of 20-somethings with expendable income and a lot of free time. There are a number of Halloween related activities in the last few weeks of October. I’ve decided on checking out my first Rocky Horror Picture Show event. I'm super excited, but I have just one problem. What will I wear?!

I think Korea is amazing! Part 1

Posted on Tue, Oct 01, 2013 @ 03:17 PM

I'm pretty sure you've heard by now that Korea is amazing. And my list of reasons WHY continues to grow. While living here for the past two years, I've grown to love the culture and the people. Although there are still a few things that bother me, I can't imagine how life will be when I move home. I think Korea actually changes everyone, each in a different way. Here are a few ways Korea has spoiled me and made life that much easier:

Teaching Abroad in Korea: Teaching Is Half the Fun!

Posted on Fri, Sep 20, 2013 @ 03:38 PM

The travel experience. The new culture. The interesting foods. The amazing people, both native and foreign. The adventure at large. I could go on and on about the many reasons that exist for teaching in South Korea. However, one aspect that is often overlooked is almost always the one that expats remember the most when their time in South Korea is over. The students, the children, the little rascals who provide incredibly unexpected and rewarding experiences on a frequent basis. My kids are at the center of some of my favorite memories from the 15 months I've lived here.

While Teaching in South Korea, Travel to Tokyo! (Part 1)

Posted on Thu, Aug 15, 2013 @ 11:10 AM

One of the huge pluses of living abroad is that you move closer to countries that you want to visit. Living in South Korea gives you cheaper access to Southeast Asia, China, and Japan. For Chusok, a Thanksgiving-like Holiday in Korea, a couple friends and I traveled to Tokyo for four days. The experience was incredible.

Rainy Season Activity: Korea's Mustoy Café

Posted on Wed, Jul 17, 2013 @ 03:00 PM

Right now, Korea is smack in the middle of the infamous monsoon season. While it can make walking to work a little less than pleasant, you can’t let it hamper your free time, especially your weekends. Since the out of doors is particularly damp, hot, and muggy, finding indoors activities is a top priority. Luckily, Seoul has a wide range of things to keep you both dry and busy. You can go the normal route like museums and movies, or you can track down some of the more unusual activities. This weekend’s diversion? The Mustoy Café in Seoul...
