Coming to Korea was the best decision to learn about who I am and what I like. Not only has Korea allowed me to travel to a new country but it has allowed me to live a life I never knew I would have let alone enjoy. I have always had a dream to travel the world, especially experiencing the sensations of Asian countries. Korea has allowed me to start that dream by starting a new life doing something I wasn’t sure I would enjoy - but being pleasantly surprised to enjoy it thoroughly.Read More
Teachers Share their Experiences While Living Abroad!
The last blog I wrote was about my escapades throughout Boseong, and particularly the green tea fields. But I got to partake in another very special experience while there, and I feel it merits its own blog! My friends and I were able to visit a hemp farm that specifically produces hemp textiles, another specialty of Boseong. Unfortunately, I’m not sure if it’s open to the public without appointment and I had the special opportunity to go as a group. In this blog I will talk about the highlights of our day at the hemp farm and tell you why you should visit it during your time teaching in Korea.Read More
Spring is just around the corner! I look forward to the blooming cherry blossoms, blue skies and delicious strawberries everywhere! Korea is a popular travel destination during the months of April and May, because of the great weather and stunning Spring atmosphere. The scenery is magnificent, from the Canola flowers growing inside Mt. Hallasan's crater to the perfectly pictured Yeoido Cherry Blossom trees. Korea really is superb during this season and there are a lot of festivals to celebrate the arrival of Spring in Korea!Read More
Teaching English in Korea is usually a desirable choice because of the amount of savings you could accumulate over a short period of time. Korea has been top of the ESL charts for the past 10 years when it comes to salaries and benefits. Even teachers starting-out get paid reasonably and there is the opportunity to rack-up a good amount of money after one year.Read More
The weather in Korea is heating up which means summer has arrived! To celebrate the beginning of summer, one of my friends invited us to go to the popular Daemyung Resort in Yangpyeong. About an hour and a half away from Seoul, Daemyung Resort is located in Korea's countryside of Gyeonggi-do. Being able to make short distance weekend getaways is one of the great perks of teaching English in Korea.
