Travel Korea

Korea is a wonderful country.

The food is delicious, the people are kind and helpful, and crime is virtually nonexistent. Not to mention the amazing public transportation system, connecting it all cheaply and easily.

I lived and worked in South Korea for a year, teaching English in a Hagwon (after-school English school). I like to think that I have a small grip on what is amazing about living in Korea and what isn’t, as well as how to be a TEFL professional in one of the best markets for teachers on Earth.

Grab some kimchi and corn silk tea, settle in, and enjoy reading about the wonderful world of Korea.

  5. Hey, did you ever try http://map.daum.net? Its like Google maps, but its in Korean. But! if you can locate your position and where you want to go, and learn to read a little Korean, its not as hard as you think to navigate your way there. And… how did you like your stay in Korea? How long where you there?

    • Hi! I did try Daum, but I’ve found that because the system is strange about addresses here in Korea, it’s easiest to use landmarks to navigate. A lot of directions are not very good, especially the ones from the Korean Tourist organization.

      I still live in Korea! It’s pretty nice here, although I’m not sure that I would want to live here forever.

  6. Hello! I’m currently struggling to find a program best suited for me and vice versa. . . I have no teaching background and I know there are numerous programs that do not require one, but how do you know which ones are…legit? and how do I pick a place?
    Thank youuuuuuuuuu
