On the 24th of August, I got on a plane bound for Seoul, South Korea. I’ll be spending this next year teaching ESL at a private school in Cheonan.
This is the first time I’ve lived outside of my home country. It’s one of the few times I’ve traveled to a place where English is not the primary language. And this’ll be one of the only times I’ve traveled solo.
It’s gonna be an adventure.
Get ready for future posts about teaching ESL, eating Korean food, life around Cheonan, and the trials and tribulations of learning the Korean language*.
Thanks for reading,
*I exaggerate, actually. I’ve been studying it for only a couple of months now, and I agree with my tutor that it’s an easier language to learn than English. Probably because it isn’t the Frankenstein’s Monster equivalent of Romance languages!
