Any person likes to enjoy social and economic resources and this is possible only when he tries to learn…Continue Reading “How to make foreign language learning more effective with 10 online tools.”

Anyone who reads this blog knows that I have a fair amount of experience teaching English.  I have shared numerous stories on here about lesson plans that I have used as well as experiences that I have had with my former students.  One of the things that I struggled with more than anything while teaching English was being able to effectively organize myself outside of class for the private lessons that I taught.  There are a TON of resources online that give you good material…Continue Reading “An AWESOME New Resource for English Teachers!”

It has been a few months since I moved on from my first English teaching assignment in South Korea.  Since then, I have volunteered in Indonesia, traveled extensively through Mexico and Colombia, and started a graduate school program at Universidad EAFIT in Medellin, Colombia.  I could not be happier with my current situation in life and I want the same for everyone else.  None of what I am doing would be possible though if it weren’t for the fact that I first decided to take…Continue Reading “Teach English in Korea, Save $25,000 in One Year, and Change Your Life!”

Recently, the internet has gone crazy about an article published in the Wall Street Journal regarding an English teacher in Korea who makes $4 million a year.  A link to the article can be found here: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324635904578639780253571520.html.

Recently I was given the opportunity to teach English at GM in Korea.  It’s not too often that foreigners are aloud to contract work outside of their language academy while living here, but I lucked out because my employer has some connections. I started working at the main GM manufacturing facility in South Korea (Changwon City) yesterday and so far my experience there has been amazing.  I’ve only taught two classes but I’ve already made friends with my students and been invited for a group…Continue Reading “Teaching English at GM in Korea”

Before I came to Korea, I had little knowledge as to what teaching English in this country was all about (or what teaching English anywhere in the world was about, for that matter).  I have heard a lot of horror stories about people who have come to Korea and taught English in a Hagwon (private language academy, like mine) only to be fired right before their contract expired, lost their job in the middle of their contract, etc.  Those stories may all be true but…Continue Reading “Want to experience South Korea?
