Teaching in Korea: A great little film to let you know more about where you are on your way to

David Dutton is a director who supports independent art and music presence both locally and worldwide. Take a look at his short film on South Korea to give you an idea of what you will be experiencing when you get there to begin your job teaching English.

There is so much more to this great opportunity than the rewards that you get alone from teaching English in Korea. Be open to travelling around Korea, to the food and the culture or you will surely be missing out on a lot.

The Best Western Restaurants for English Teachers in Korea

restaurants for english teachers in korea

If you are teaching in Korea or planning on going to Korea soon to teach English, you are going to want to try Korean food. You might not know much about Korean food now, but once you discover how amazing it is, you will most likely become a fan of it and incorporate it in your diet…even after you return home from Korea!

For more information about the food that you can find in Korea, check out our Korean food page here.

No matter what city in Korea you end up teaching in, you will inevitably have ‘western’ restaurants in your city. These can include Indian, Thai, American or Mexican.

For some great insight as to the ‘best of the west’ that Korea has to offer, check out Jackie Bolen’s post on The Best Expat Restaurants in Korea.

5 years in a Korean Prision = Enough Reason NOT to Smoke Pot in Korea

If you are teaching English and living in Korea, you need to be aware that the laws for drugs are not the same as they are at home. If caught with marijuana in Korea, you can face a fine of up to 50 million Won and 5 years in prison.

Take a look at the article below to see if smoking pot in Korea is worth the risk. We don’t think it is.

Foreign English teachers arrested, booked for selling, using marijuana

An Eastern View of the East-West Differences

The East

We live in time
We are always at rest
We are passive
We like to contemplate
We accept the world as it is

We live in peace with nature
Religion is our first love
We delight to think about the meaning of life
We believe in freedom of silence
We lapse into meditation

We marry first, then love
Our marriage is the beginning of a love affair
Our love it Mute
We try to conceal it from the world

Self-denial is a secret to our survival
We are taught from the cradle to want less and less
We glorify austerity and renunciation

Poverty is to us a badge of spiritual salvation
In the sunset years of life we renounce the world and prepare for the hereafter

ying yang

The West

We live in space
We are always on the move
We are aggressive
We like to act
We try to change it according to our blueprint
Technology is our passion
We delight in physics

We believe in freedom of speech
We strive for articulation

We love first, then marry
Our marriage is the happy end of a romance
It is a contract
Our love is vocal
We delight in showing it to others

Self-assertiveness is the key to our success
We are urged every day to want more and more
We emphasize gracious living and enjoyments
Poverty is to us a sign of degradation
We retire to enjoy the fruits of our labor
