A place for teachers abroad.
Corey Brown teaches in Korea and was placed by Aclipse!
On living in Korea:
I have been living in Daejeon, South Korea for about 8 weeks now and I am loving it. The city has an excellent transportation system allowing me to go all over the city without a car with relative ease. Around my apartment building there are many familiar eating establishments which include: KFC, Burger King, 7-11, Starbucks, Coffee bean. Krispie Cream, and a few stops away there is even a Costco! The city is filled with other foreigners who are either studying abroad or working at different Hogwans. I have already met people from Canada, Britain, France, Australia, New Zealand, and Saudi Arabia.
I have 5 classes with a total of 60 different students. Three of my classes are extremely well behaved that consistently participate in class and are a true pleasure to teach. My other two classes have some difficulties but I am getting them more under control and trying to address their difficulties. I really love the late start each day which allows me time to sleep in and go to the gym before work. Also Chungdahm provides me with a Korean assistant who does all the interactions with my students' parents.
I have been going out to the club district in town called Timeworld. There I have met people from all over the world and have had some wild nights clubbing and bar hopping with new friends. Already we have gone on a trip to the Mountains and seen a Buddhist temple, and this weekend we are making a trip to Seoul. I highly recommend Applying through Aclipse and becoming a teacher at Chungdahm Learning!
