Winter/Summer Workshops For Teachers in Korea

Posted on Wed, Jan 18, 2012 @ 11:26 AM

        One of the great things about teaching English in Korea for Chungdahm is that instructors have the opportunity to make extra money during the students’ summer and winter breaks.  During this time, Chungdahm offers Winter/Summer Workshops which are three hour classes in the morning usually from 9:30am to 12:30pm. Depending on your branch, class schedule may be a bit different. The class subjects range from basic reading, listening, and comprehension to TOEFL test preparations.

        It’s a great way to make use of the extra time Instructors have in the morning. Instructors performing these workshops will have the option to work as little as 2 days a week, and if you’re ambitious up to 6 days a week. Currently I am doing 6 days a week. I admit, it does get intense and tiring, but the good thing is it’s only for a month. The good chunk of money I’ll be making is worth suffering for only a month.

One fun thing about teaching English in Korea is that you get to work with people from all over, meaning that there will inevitably be a variety of reactions to Korean winter.
