Songwon Kindergarten in Yangsan--near Namyangsan Station


Avoid at all costs...

I've got an F2 visa and I've worked all over Busan, Yangsan, and Daegu, but this is one of the worst places I've worked. The teaching is fairly normal for the first hour or so of their program--run around, teach short classes, sing songs, etc...--but the last two hours you're locked in with 15-20 kids (all under 7, Korean age) with next to nothing to do. Therefore, you're left with all the duties of their regular teacher: wiping butts, drying tears, ending fights... Now, I'm a logic prone individual, and I didn't have much of a problem babysitting and whatnot, but it was extremely trying and mostly miserable. So, there's a good reason to not work there.

St Benedict’s Anglican English Retreat

Repeats every 7 days until Thu Aug 25 2011 .
Friday, August 26, 2011 - 18:00

In partnership with The Order of St Benedict in Yangsan, bordering Busan and Ulsan, an Anglican English weekend retreat will be held in the beautifully secluded park-like grounds of St Benedict’s Convent from the evening of Friday 26 to Sunday 28 August.

The aim of the retreat is to gather the scattered expat English-speaking Anglicans of the area for a not to be missed opportunity for worship, education, and fellowship. However, we would also like to extend a warm welcome to other Christians to whom this would be meaningful.

The retreat will include reflections on the life and faith of St Benedict, and a full Sunday Eucharist celebrated in the convent chapel. We look forward to extending to you a warm welcome home at St Benedict’s.
