Author’s note: ‘Life in Korea’ posts are geared toward the newer expats – in this case, those just starting out in Korea. Comments are open!
As one semester ends and another begins, a new wave of English teachers will be coming to Korea. If you just arrived off the plane, welcome – here’s how to get started in your new Korean life:
Day 1 – Unpack. This sounds simple enough, but it’s too easy to want to explore the country while living out of a suitcase. Korea will become your home, and it’ll still be there in a day or two. Anything you’ll need over the next month or two should be unpacked, but you can probably leave the winter clothes in the suitcase to save space.
