Taking The Next Step – A Teacher in South Korea Shares her Experiences of Moving Abroad

Taking The Next Step - A Teacher in South Korea Shares her Experiences of Moving Abroad

Guest Article by Uzma Ali, a Reach To Teach teacher in South Korea When I made the decision to leave my comfortable, unfulfilling life to start teaching English in Korea, I was excited at the prospect of having an adventure half way across the world. However, when the moment came to say goodbye to ‘home’ I can honestly say I have never felt such fear. The urge to run indoors and make my excuses was immense and stepping onto the train to London, Heathrow was quite possibly the hardest thing I have ever had to do. “What in God’s name am I doing?” I thought. The only thing I remember about that train journey was breathing deeply and whispering to myself, “Be brave, be brave, be brave,” as I watched the landscape fly by. Deciding to live in a different country – be it a few months, a year or even three years – is certainly not as easy as it may seem.

RTT April Event Taiwan: We’re Going Kayaking!

RTT April Event Taiwan: We’re Going Kayaking!

We’re going kayaking! Now I know how much you all love every waking minute of your teaching jobs: those classes you just can’t get through without caffeine, the naughty kids, the piles of homework, the feeling that you might not actually be a teacher at all but a performing monkey/children’s TV presenter. (Ok, maybe the last one’s just me.) So, we thought we would turn the tables, give you a break from teaching and give you the chance to be students again. Kayaking students! So enroll now for a place on our kayaking trip! We’re going kayaking! (Can you tell I’m a little excited about this RTT event?) We’re meeting at 12.00pm at Xindian MRT station then heading down to the riverside to meet our instructors and get cracking, or kayaking even.  The price includes two hours of instruction and all equipment hire, so all you have to do is turn up armed with only your sense of adventure and maybe a towel, in case you fall in! Details: Date: Sunday 24th April Place: Xindian MRT (only one exit) Time: 12.00pm- 3.00pm Stuff to bring: Change of clothes and a towel in case you are a bad student and fall […]

China can be an out-of-this-world experience and many people aren’t prepared for some of things they might encounter in the Middle Kingdom. So, if you’re teaching in China, please don’t freak out when… people stare someone of the same gender holds your hand or asks you to dance (this is a sign of friendship) you wash your clothes for the first time and your rinse water is black people rummage through your grocery cart people put food on your plate people call you fat to your face you blow your nose and your snot is black (coal is used in some cities and the air is full of smoke) your water is turned off you can’t flush your toilet people get up close and personal (Our sense of personal space is different from theirs) people jump in front of you in line or you get pushed out of the way people randomly shout out, “Hallo!” and then giggle cars, buses, bikes and mule carts do not wait for you to cross the street you end up driving with a taxi driver who seems to have a death wish your empty or near empty glass is refilled to the brim someone […]
