Today’s interview features Taylor, an RTT teacher who arrived in South Korea in Feb 2020. Learn about teaching in Daejeon, South Korea during COVID-19.
Ah! The joys of free time! A year ago, I was a busy beaver. There was so much to do back then; documents after documents needed to be filled, apostilled, signed- a long list of tasks needed to get done.
We would like to welcome our new Reach To Teach teachers in South Korea for EPIK Orientation Spring 2017. Thank you for choosing to work with us!
Having flexibility in the ESL classroom is essential as things can often change or be altered at the last minute. Staying ahead of this by being flexible is what makes a great teacher.
Happy New Year in Korea! 새해 복 많이 받으세요! The holiday season has slowly come to an end, the new year has begun. Christmas was spent with friends in Jeonju. It was a truly remarkable experience. New memories were created and there was a lot of laughter involved.
Christmas in Korea is fairly interesting. It’ not as big of a deal like in the United States. Playing secret Santa with colleagues in the office is non-existent. Decorating personal spaces with Christmas decorations is seen more as a daunting task than a joyful occasion. All the teachers are anticipating the end of the holiday season because that means one thing, vacation.
Winter vacation in Korea is almost upon us. It’s finally the last week of classes! As I write this, I am breathing a long sigh of relief. I appreciate my job and the energetic children I work with, but the time has now come when I’m in desperate need of a break.
As another year in Korea approaches, I have begun to reflect on the differences I am faced with and changes I have made during my time as an EPIK teacher in South Korea.
