Teachers Share their Experiences While Living Abroad!

Why I Applied with Aclipse and CDI for the Second Time

Posted on Thu, Aug 02, 2018 @ 12:00 PM

It took three and a half days for me to fall in love with Seoul, South Korea. On my way to a summer fellowship in Manila, I decided to make a pit stop to visit my best friend who lives there. I touched down in Incheon, and we made our way on the airport bus to her house which sat right on the southern half of the Han River. The subsequent hours consisted of noraebang and fried chicken, a hike through Bukhansan (I’d never met a place with a national park within not just a city, but a citywith millions of inhabitants), weaving through the countless markets and underground malls, and stunning palaces and museums.

Tijana's  4-year Professional and Personal Growth at Chungdahm Learning

Posted on Mon, May 28, 2018 @ 12:00 PM

I initially chose Chungdahm Learning, because I could foresee a future where I could professionally and personally grow. Now, looking back on my 4-year journey with the company, I can say that they met all my expectations and offered opportunities beyond what I thought I could experience. 

A lot of foreigners worry about their job prospects post-ESL teaching and how being an ESL teacher for 2-3 years would look on their resume. This is why, I always say it is important to choose a company in Korea that you can grow with so, that you have strong references and are constantly being challenged to grow in different ways. It is important, no matter what you do, to never be stagnant while living abroad and take every opportunity to mold your resume with new skills and insight.

After teaching in Korea for one year with ChungDahm Learning you may find yourself yearning to stay longer.  This should not be shocking as English teachers living in Korea tend to stay in the country for up to two years.

How New ChungDahm Teachers Can Take Advantage of Veterans

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.
