Teachers Share their Experiences While Living Abroad!
While I was preparing for my one year adventure in Korea in May 2012, my recruiter suggested
that I learn a little Korean and offered some helpful websites. I knew that learning a few words in Korean would be beneficial to me but my first encounter with the Korean language however, produced so much anxiety, that I was immediately turned off. “What in the world is this?” I wondered as I watched stick figures greet each other in Korean. Many questions filled my head. I felt overwhelmed and confused. I shut it off, calmed my mind and went on to do something else. However, this experience didn’t turn me off to teaching in Korea. I’ve been living and teaching in Korea for ten months already and though this is my second attempt at learning Korean, I’ve just about finished the alphabet and I am excited!
