English speaking Firefighter/ Paramedic?
Printer-friendly version

Does anyone know a firefighter or paramedic in the Busan area that speaks English?  I am planning on training to become a FF or paramedic when I return west and would really like to do a ride along or check out a Korean fire department.  Thanks.

I think you got legs   and a mouth . Just  walk into a fire station and ask them .

I have taken a field trip to a fire station and some can speak english . They have been to other countries for training . They are eager to speak english . In Korea  the worst question to ask is do you speak english . Koreans have studied  English for years    most of them just lack confidence and a chance to speak english . Never give a Korean a way not to speak English . My complaint about Koreans is that they do not speak Korean to me . THey  just speak English since they want to practice it . When i was in Taiwan I was always happy when they spoke to me in Chinese  so i could learn Chinese . but in korea   they prefer to speak english to westerners .

A lot of anons on here lately. Very odd. One thread is anon after anon. Are Koreans coming on here now as foreigners to keep an eye on us? I know immigration planted fake jobs all the time but...

Koreabridge doesn't make you log in to leave a comment anymore. If you don't log in, it doesn't prompt you, it just says you're anonymous. Just noticed that I didn't log on, so this will probably say: anonymous too.

We've been experimenting with it for about a week now to see if it encourages more conversation.  Anonymous comments need to be approved by a moderator before appearing online.  

So far, I'd say the upside is that it has increased the amount of commenting a bit without resulting in too much more spam or nastiness. The downside is that anonymous users cannot edit their posts, be contacted, or held accountable. 

Would wecome others' thoughts. 

Thanks,
Jeff

“Anonymous” is no different than making a fake name.  Right, P?

Good to know. I was wondering what was going on. All of a sudden everyone is annonymous.

Some people like me didnt know why my comments were appearing  with my name  not mentioned .  But I figured out it was most likely because I forget to log in . Also at work I do not want to always log in on sites . It seems to me more people are leaving messages that is good . If something was too bad  it would be

deleted before being posted . I would suggest some more interesting topics being brought to the table  like nice travel places near busan but not just the beach and pomomsa . Or a real  debate topic with lots of emotions like the eating of dog meat by koreans    If you ever want to wake up some students talk about that topic , The topic of the koreans not liking koreans dating westerners is really an old issue and shows you that some koreans still live in the cave with their racist thinking
