“Call Me Maybe, Teacher?” -Phone Teaching with Korean Students-

How to imitate a stone at the gym

For the first time in my life I actually committed myself to one of my New Year’s Resolutions. This year I joined a gym near my work. Pure narcissism drove me to joining. A more toned body, less weight and higher fitness levels were the desired objectives and had been put off for too long.

I found that this Korean gym was very much like the gyms back home and in some ways better. Just for starters, there is a range of bikes, a selection of work-out clothes, clean towels, extensive weight lifting equipment, a sauna room and powerful showers. Each of the treadmills is equipped with a TV offering over 70 channels. Admittedly, 95% of these channels are in Korean but the thought is there

How to Nail the Phone Interview

After a recruiter or school receives your resume, they will want to schedule a phone interview. (If there is no phone interview, it’s probably not worth pursuing). Besides your resume, the phone interview is what will determine if you get a job. The majority of phone interviews are not a typical job interview, so it’s good to know what to expect.

It Will be Late

Of course, the phone interview will probably be scheduled late at night, from 11 pm – 3 am. The important thing to do is be as available as much as possible. Otherwise the job may fill up while they are trying to schedule a convenient time for your interview.  Make sure you have access to a relatively quiet place, and where you get good reception. Also, check to make sure you have the correct time conversion as well.

Hi all,


Okay so I have a cell phone with LG and I have that feature where the caller hears a song when they call my phone. I think it's called coloring in Korean, but I could be wrong. Right now, when my friends call me they hear classical music and I'd like to change this. Do you know how?

Call home from your cell for free

You can call home for free with your cell phone.

Just dial 1544 0044.  You will hear some pre-recorded Korean giving instructions.

As soon as you hear that voice just dial your country code, area code and number followed by the # sign.

BAM! You are connected.  This service appears to be 100% free, except for your normal phone charges.  I have used this service for eight months with no surprise charges on my bill.

Hope this helps someone!
