Having spent the last three years living and teaching in Korea, I have grown a strong love for the country. There are just some things here that I will never be able to get anywhere else. There are some things that I enjoy, I hold on to, and I use them to their fullest. This blog post is about the unsaid benefits of living in Korea and will focus on a number of differences, primarily focusing on my experiences between the living in the U.S. and South Korea.Read More
Teachers Share their Experiences While Living Abroad!
One of my biggest concerns before I began teaching English in Korea was that I would find it difficult to make friends. ChungDahm however does a great job at coordinating events that allows teachers from various branches to meet up and participate in fun activities. Within each term, there are at least 3 functions that the development team puts together. I've been here for over 3 years and since the majority of my closest friends have already left, I use these functions as a way to network and meet new people. Below are three ChungDahm events that I have recently attended.Read More
One of my favorite things to do is to get with other ChungDahm branches and participate in our Social Club Events. Some of our social club events included trips to Aiins World, Lotte World Amusement Park, and Trivia Night. This past Sunday night was Trivia Night Round Number 2 held at Bull and Barrel in Itaewon, Central Seoul.
Chungdahm’s Social Clubs are a great opportunity for new Chungdahm teachers to get acquainted with veteran teachers as well as with Korea itself. Also, if you are a non Chungdahm teacher and are looking to teach in Korea, maybe Chungdahm’s Social Clubs can be an additional benefit for you. Previous Chungdahm Social Club outings included trips to Everland Amusement Park and Aiins World Miniature Theme Park.
