I'm soon to be jetting off to S.Korea to teach, for 1 year at least, and was wondering if anyone could offer any additional advice?
I'll be teaching in a Hogwan, in Incheon, from the beginning of August. I'm quite aware of some of the pitfulls with Hogwan's, such as:
- Little holiday/sick day time
- Job security
- Unsociable working hours
- Contract changes
but at least I get the weekends off, right?
Anyway, the school I'm working for is http://www.pinehurst.co.kr
, it looks pretty nice but I know looks can be deceiving. Has anyone had or know anyone that has experience with this school? Any last minute warnings I should know of?
As its a Hogwan, I'm in the mindset of giving it just the 1 year, but what have your experiences of Hogwan's been like?
At the moment I'm feeling completely unprepared, so any advice I what I should be doing, before I go, and what I should bring would be most helpful.
Thanks in advance
