I am currently teaching English in South Korea in a newly established academy. I have now been here for six months along with my boyfriend, we were the only foreign teachers. Our director speaks American English and struggles to understand my British accent (despite hiring me after a telephone interview). Without addressing it directly she refuses to allow me to teach anything higher than elementary level one. Which means that I am always teaching the kindergarten classes. We now have two American teachers joining the academy and they appear to be getting some preferential treatment, upon asking her to review my classes now that there are more teachers she retorted that it would be too difficult for me.
Can anyone give me any ideas of what I should do?
I really wasn't prepared for my English speaking ability to be questioned, but I am very unhappy continuing this job now.
