The Korean Workplace Atmosphere

The Korean workplace atmosphere is an important thing to take note of in teaching. This is the atmosphere around you when you aren’t in the classroom teaching. You’ll either be in your own abode planning lessons in your empty classroom, or if it isn’t exclusive to you, you’ll be working in the Teachers’ Office.
