What are the requirements to teach English in Korea? I spent 3.5 years of my time in Asia teaching in Korea. I can tell you for starters that Korea is a bit more intensive when it comes to getting started than other countries. There is a lot of paperwork you have to do. Getting all of your documents ready can easily take 2 months or more.
For starters you need:
A 4 year degree (in anything) or a 2 year degree for the TALK program
To be a native English speaker from: USA, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or South Africa.
You need those qualifications to get an E-2 visa to legally teach in Korea.
I don’t honestly know what’s wrong with me today. I know that it’s some wicked brew created by Trump’s visit to the peninsula this week, this year on the whole, and waking up this morning to find out that 26 people had been murdered at their morning service in their small-town church yesterday. I read it just as I was about to head out the door, because that’s part of my job now — to read the news just as I’m about to walk out the door, and on the train on the way to the studio, and on the bus on the way home, and before I go to bed at night.
In a new commercial for Cass beer, pitchman and respected chef and restaurateur Gordon Ramsay takes a large swallow of beer, grimaces in ostensible pleasure, and proclaims it to be “bloody fresh!” The commercial is hoped to raise the international profile of Cass beer, though, as it enlists a chef renowned for his attention to quality to shill for the Korean equivalent of Budweiser, the ad has also noticeably lowered the foreign beer-drinking public’s estimation of Ramsay’s ability to credibly rate beer.
This is an introduction video to teaching English to young learners that is used in the beginning of ESLinsider's online TEFL courses. If you are thinking of teaching children or if you are not sure if you should teach children, adolescents or adults then you'll probably find this video intersting.
Mentioned here is also a comparison of teaching English to children vs. adults or teens.
Young learners range from kindergarten to about 13 years old. They are active, social and creative. They also have a short attention span. The younger they are the shorter it is. They are pretty social and they get motivated by having fun.
One of the things I love about Korea is how fast you can get certain things done. Repairmen often come the day you call them. Products ordered online cross the country in a day or two. Fried chicken is rushed to your door by a motorbike driver with a loose interpretation of traffic laws.
The list goes on, but a plan by Incheon International airport to open a plastic surgery clinic seems to have pushed the quick service concept a bit too far. The idea was to open the clinic in the transfer area, so that patients could receive treatment without having to pass through immigration and officially enter the country.
When I think about it, I will post our weekly menus up here, especially if we’re debuting some new recipes. Included in this week’s excitement is a Thai Corn Soup that sounds awesome and hopefully tastes the part. For those not in the know, or who cannot read my handwriting, “OOO” is “on our own,” HQ is a favorite expat bar here in Busan, and that mess of writing in the middle is for “Leek and Potato Soup,” made with leeks from our friends at Busan Organic Vegetables. Oh, and “B for D,” high fives for those who can figure out what this is.
So charcoal mask is the newest hype in the beauty world! Almost every day we see those ad online where someone peeling off those charcoal masks of their face while pulling off those stubborn white heads, black heads and all the dirt and debris! To be honest I find those videos quite satisfying! ♥ But to tell the truth, you can achieve the “pulling off unwanted stuff” effect just the same with other things like gelatin or egg white. But the advantage of any ready-made pack or mask is you do not need any preparation there. Just take the amount from the tube and apply directly. These days have been busy, and hardly I find any time for taking care of myself. So, most of the times, I rely on store bought masks. Also the reputation of Korean skin care products helped me made my decision to give them a try.
Halloween is not as popular in Korea as it is in other countries, but some hagwons and schools here hold Halloween parties and festivals for the students. Halloween is one of my favorite school events to prepare for because there are a lot of activities that I can incorporate in my lessons. I’m going to share some of these activities.
