A Korean's Perspective and Advice to Teachers

Hey guys!

I've recently talked with Luke Kim about teaching in South Korea. We talk about a ton of topics including:

- Teaching in Korea

- Adjusting to life there

- Teaching Adults

- Making more money


I'd love to hear the group's opinions and ideas.


Public school jobs ending next year?

I have been hearing rumors amongst some foreigners about their concerns over being renewed, and the schools' program being replaced by After School? Anybody know about this? With a new government in place, are the priorities going to change? More jobs for Korean English teachers perhaps?

ESL Training on Pronunciation

I teach many Korean students and work with many ESL teachers. I know that sometimes the most difficult thing can be speaking and pronunciation. That's why I developed this short mini-training on Word Stress pronunciation. I would love for you to take this course, improve your speaking and/or teaching of speaking. Please tell me what you think. Thank you so much :)

MA TESOL Pukyeong Natl. University- Did you like it here?


 Hello Teachers!

        I will study at Pukyeong National University for the MA TESOL degree and I want you to recall your experience as a student there. 

   Was the program helpful? Is it a legit Master's degree? And give me some advice you would like to pass on to a new student like me there. 

Is the accreditation recognized in the USA? This website indicates it is-


  Thank you,


English tutoring online legal?

What's the legal situation regarding online English tutoring? I know one on one tutoring without a permit is illegal, and that those permits are not granted to many visa types but how would those laws translate to an online business?
For example, if I, a British citizen, used one of the many online tutoring platforms to tutor a Spanish student over Skype while living in the UK, it would be legal provided I declared my income and paid tax.
If I then moved to Korea, what laws govern this relationship? I'm still British, the student is still Spanish and the Platform may be based in the US. Do I need to declare and pay tax on this income to the Korean Govt? And can the restrictions on tutoring without a permit still apply?
Now say for example that the student I found on this platform was a Korean Citizen. Is this now illegal because both I and the student are resident in Korea?



Can anyone recommend a good math book for kindergarten students? My school is looking for something that would last a year.
