Top 5 Places to Teach in Korea Outside of Seoul

Posted on Wed, Jul 20, 2016 @ 02:20 PM

In 2016, Korea is still one of the most popular destinations to teach English. Teachers can save while travelling and enjoy an excellent standard of living while meeting  foreigners from all over the world. Over the past 5 years, Koreas expat community has almost doubled, and plenty of job seekers from Eastern Europe and the USA are finding more and more opportunities for career growth on the Asian continent. With the release of Gangnam-Style and K-drama/ K- pop becoming increasingly popular, more and more foreigners haven been drawn to Korea.

6 Questions for a New ChungDahm Teacher

Posted on Fri, Aug 28, 2015 @ 02:19 PM

Career exploration includes matching jobs and professions with one's own interest and skill sets. A job interview for a job in your home country typically includes in-person interviews with your potential boss and colleagues. This interaction gives you information to assess whether the opportunity is a good fit for you.
Determining whether a teach abroad job is right for you can be trickier.

Preparing for a New Semester at ChungDahm

Posted on Tue, Nov 25, 2014 @ 09:42 AM

ChungDahm calendars are divided into 4 semesters. There are Summer, Spring, Winter and Fall semesters that generally consist of 13 weeks.

Semesters come and go pretty quickly, and before you know it the end of the term has arrived and you should be mentally preparing yourself for the next semester. Unlike most school terms, ChungDahm does not have breaks in-between semesters, so for any ChungDahm teacher the beginning of each new semester is stressful and fast-paced. You have to adjust to a winding down environment and then to a brand new starting environment. It takes a lot of mental preparation and classroom prepping to become accustomed to this environment.
