Obtaining the necessary documents to teach in Korea can be really stressful and a big headache if you do not know where to start or how to go about it.

Coming to Korea is not only about an opportunity to teach, to learn a new culture, to learn about yourself, but it is also the place to start a career.

From the first day of being in Korea, he taught me something that I would never forget, how to teach Memory Giga. Pinnacle TheHustler (Jason Waller), was one of my two trainers when I first came to Korea to teach English.

This post is not to scare anyone away from coming to teach English in South Korea. It's more like a reminder/advice about things to take care of before making the trip across the world. I wish I knew about this before I came out so things could have worked out smoothly.
