Teachers Share their Experiences While Living Abroad!

Why Natalie Recommended Aclipse and CDI to her Friend

Posted on Tue, Mar 19, 2019 @ 12:00 PM

When my husband and I moved to Korea to teach English in June 2017, it wasn’t my first shebang.  I’d lived there from 2012-2014 and fallen in love with the country. I moved back to the US to be closer to family; I had no idea then I’d fall in love and marry someone whose mom was Korean. My husband, Wayne, had heard me go on and on about how great my experience was in Korea, and it wasn’t long before he told me he wanted to teach there for a while, too! He thought it’d be a great opportunity to get in touch with his roots. I was ecstatic to hear this.

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.

Posted on Wed, May 10, 2017 @ 01:54 PM

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. With Asia right on your doorstep, teachers prefer to travel in their first year and save in the second. With efficient transport, cheap banking and low costs of living, Korea is a desirable ESL destination to enjoy for more than one year.

Posted on Fri, Oct 21, 2016 @ 12:00 PM

One of the perks of teaching in Korea for a company like Chungdahm Learning are the growth opportunities that allow you to grow professionally.  Whether it's advancing within Chungdahm itself, or opportunities outside of school, there are many ways to enhance your resume while teaching abroad.  This past week, I, along with fellow Chungdahm teachers, had the chance to report at the 17th World Knowledge Forum in Seoul. The World Knowledge Forum is Asia's biggest collaboration of knowledge -  with this year’s theme being “Aiming for Great Instauration.”
