Great posts so far. I've enjoyed learning plenty from this forum already.
I hope you don't mind me changing the topic for a second and throwing some short questions out there - amongst the masses of newbies and seasoned "old timers".
I'm considering applying for a teaching job in korea soon and would like to find out as much as possible before excepting a job (haven't been there before). I'm trying to find out as much as possible first.
If as many people as possible could spare a couple of minutes to reply to the following questions, I'd be very grateful......and more decided.
what problems did/do you experience while working and living overseas?
what are the main/consistant problems you face during a teaching day?
how did/do you overcome the above?
and.......(this is a question for the old timers
what subject do you always find yourself checking out first on forum boards such as this slendid one?
Hope that didn't come across like some market research survey or something..hehe
All the best
*Note to moderator: I hope you can place this post in the most appropriate place for me....as I wasn't sure. I'm just hoping it gets as much exposure as possible:)
