Let's get teacher salaries back on track Re: Let's get teacher salaries back on track crudler

I'm curious: at what point in the past was 2.5 plus housing the standard base rate of pay?  I've been here over six years, and I don't remember that ever being the standard.  Sure, there were jobs and locations where you could make that much or more (there still are such jobs), but they weren't the standard.

My other question is how are you planning to create unity in...

The custom-built computers I've bought in Korea had English language BIOS.

I have 8 motherboards supporting various chip sets and they all have English BIOS. I think if you want to be doubly sure pay a visit to one of the computer towns in either Gaya or Dongnae the guys there can help you.

Alternatively if you have basic Korean you might consider buying online. I just bought a new PC online last month. You can mix and match parts and it usually works...

Weightlifting gym Re: Weightlifting gym Paul Gaasenbeek
Bro, you should let people know where you live or work. Busan is a big place. If you live in Gaya are you really going to come to Haeundae to work out- Justa word to the wise my friend. Good luck.

Banks that Issue Certified Cheques Re: Banks that Issue Certified Cheques Peppie
I was able to go to my bank again on Friday and they did have money orders in Canadian, or US dollars. It's all sorted out. Thanks again for your help.

Weightlifting gym Re: Weightlifting gym Highwayman

I'd be interested in finding out a place where you can really drop weights also.  I work out at Hangajok fitness in danggam dong.  3 barbells, good weights, 1 decent squat rack.  They don't mind me doing crossfit workouts, but obviously no real dropping allowed (gym is on upper floor).

Any good salad bars in Busan? Re: Any good salad bars in Busan? chinesewoman

So, I went to this Salad Bar in Nampodong I mentioned with my friend...

I would say, if you don't like seafood that much, don't go there.

It's said to be Italian but don't expect it will be authentic.

Plus they don't serve dessert...

$20 is not cheap for a salad bar like this in Busan.

Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" Re: Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" lee-bum-suk

This reminds me of the women that camp out when a new store opens just to get a free plastic bowl or three rolls of toilet paper. No wonder why krispy's stopped giving away free donuts. Anyone who waits more than a minute in line to get anything free apparently doesn't have anything better to do and should just lie down and return to the earth. .

Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. Re: Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. lee-bum-suk

I never said you didn't teach them, you have, so have I but just not year 3 or 4 because it doesn't exist in these programs. According to you these people come out of a school with a BA degree in hairdressing, skin care and my personal favorite; animal grooming?  

Just show me that they have 4 year programs in these and I will let it go.

Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. Re: Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. Dogarse

Well LBS I have personally taught at one of the universities mentioned and I have personally taught all of the majors I mentioned but if my word is not good enough for you then that is your problem not mine.

If it's that important to you perhaps you could ask your wife to make a phone call and verify it.

Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. Re: Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. lee-bum-suk

I should also mention that in class 2 on the back of my handout sheet i make them put away everything off their desk but the paper and a pencil/eraser and like a test setting I tell them to draw the Korean flag.

When they properly draw the flag correctly I let that student leave. Initially, I think I had 2 out of 22 students that drew it correctly the first time and...

Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. Re: Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. lee-bum-suk

No they don't offer 4 year programs in those fields. Show me the links to where it says such, until then it's you who's full of it. I asked you before to provide proof, which you haven't and I;m sorry but your word just isn't good enough.  

As for the map, they draw it themselves on the back of my opening class handout sheet and I in turn draw one on the board. I write...

Full of it as usual LBS.  Youngasn University and Tongmyon university both offer 4 year degrees in such subjects and there are probably other that I don't know about.

On the original point about geography would you be kind enough to send me a copy of the quiz you gave your students.  I would love to see how my students compare.

New Indian & Nepali Restaurant in PNU-MAYA Re: New Indian & Nepali Restaurant in PNU-MAYA ianjkim

maybe... everyone have different tastes.....

So.. even I've never found good taste of Indian restaurant in Korea....

I got it in India ONLY.... for my taste.....

However, I just suggest that Maya is really similar to India.

Some other guys don't agree, OK.. that's their tastes...

Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" Re: Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" SolidChamp

In general, department stores like Lotte and Shinsegae are absolutely more expensive than smaller independent shops.  The Omega Seamaster I bought was roughly 400,000won cheaper at an independent dealer.  Also take into account that some dealers you can buy goods second hand.

As for this Nikon, I just wanted a mid-range starting camera, and they had this one on "sale",...

Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. Re: Is this a bad situation or not??? please help. lee-bum-suk

Name changes, combined programs, this that, exactly my point Helen. You can't get a 4year college degree in hairdressing or flight attendent. Those are 2year programs with an option in a BA if you continue within an arts program.

Koreans didn't invent this system Helen, we had this certificate program that can lead to a BA 20 years ago. It's a scam to keep people in school...

Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" Re: Lotte Department Store "Receipt Raiders" Mr. Bascomb

My wife just got a free pass to Spaland at Shinsegae worth 12,000w by showing her receipt that she had spent more than 10,000w.

The department stores are really expensive but often they sell different model that are not offered at other stores or online.  For large ticket items you should ask for discounts or other freebies.  The salesperson has some flexibility in what...
