One thing I was worried about when coming to teach in Korea was the culture shock. Being from Ireland, my friends and family all joked with me about how different life was going to be. Well, two years later I can honestly say I am still waiting for this “culture shock”. From the moment I arrived in South Korea I felt at ease. Yes the language was different, and sure the food was not the same, but Korean people are so caring and so nice that I felt right at home here. In fact, there are many similarities between the two cultures, so much so that I have never felt out of place being Irish in Korea.
