Note from the blogger: My sisters are in town this week! We’ve been busy shuffling ourselves to as many parts of Seoul and Gyeonggi-do as we can. It’s been great.
Teachers Share their Experiences While Living Abroad!
Who can live without a cell phone these days? Without one is like being disconnected from the world. That’s why before coming to Korea to teach English, obtaining a cell phone was on my priority list. There are several routes one may take to obtain one. Before I go over each one, I’d like to go over the requirements and a few differences between American and Korean mobile plans.
It’s no secret that South Korea is one of the most internet-wired countries in the world. With blisteringly fast internet speeds, it’s generally something everyone considers before making the decision to teach English in Korea. However, if you’re like me, the internet on your computer is not enough. You need to know about Korea’s mobile phone networks as well, particularly when it comes to foreigners securing their phones (smartphone or otherwise). I’ll try to offer some insight into smartphones in Korea and how to avoid some common frustrations for foreigners securing cell phones.
