Found your blog and it's been helpful--I'm planning to come to Korea in late August/early September. Can I ask what school you're teaching at? It sounds like a really fun experience!

Hi Erin- wow you're already s seasoned traveler. I'm in a small town call yeongju. This is my 4th day here and it's getting better. I'm adjusting well. Good idea to bring someone with you. My BFFL is coming in 3weeks and she will be a sore for native eyes. Ask me anything! my blog is blunt riddled with typos , and is the only thing keeping me sane. All the blogs i read left out the grity deatails that i wanted.. so i tryto get everything down asap. Good luck and talk to you soon!

Wowo your fast! hehe. That's pretty good, the pay ive seen ranges from 1.8-2.3 million won per month. can you also tell which school you're with. thanks heaps.

Erin said...

Thanks! I'll definitely keep reading--and luckily, I'm also moving over with one of my best friends which I'm sure will help with the homesickness (kind of...).

What school are you teaching at? It sounds a lot more interesting than the typical gig!
