SO! In Korea there seems to be no soft cookies anywhere! I mean anywhere! Baking is not a big part of the culture here so most places dont have an oven and if they do its small and not meant for baking full sized cakes!!! IT WAS TERRIBLE!! I have an oven but its a roasting oven.. it only produces fire with no ability to control temperature! AHH!!! also due to the lack of baking here there are no cookie doughs and ready made stuff you can just pop into an oven if you happen to have one. BUT!!! I found a gold mine! I FOUND BEN's COOKIES!! Its located in Shindorim station on line 1 at the d-cube mall food court! YAY!!!!!!

Blood typing in Korea

In Korea, instead of caring about someone's zodiac sign, they care about your blood type. EVERYONE DOESN'T care about it, and its not a serious matter. Its just something they usually use for fun to try to guess what your personality might be like. Although its not serious, it is bigger comparatively than zodiac in North America. I was bored.. so that's why I created my dating drama. LOL!!  ENJOY AND SUBSCRIBE!!

Korean handgames/Violent penalties

When I first got here and saw many children hitting eachother all the time I was like AHHHHHH. No no hitting no hitting!!1 Then i realized that the korean teachers didnt seem to be phased by it.. and it seemed like it was ok for here. Then I was at Church one time and we were playing a game for someone birthday. The penalty was for you to go in the middle of the circle and then everyone simultaneously slaps you on the back to the rhythm.."indian bop".... what a surprise.. some of the foreign people left the game after the first punishment round. LOL and to my relief I never lost. LOL!! so... hitting and some penalties seem to be apart of the culture. Mind you, its not super violent im punching to kill you kind of thing. Its more like friendly hitting.. it stings a little, but its not bad. So anyway. enjoy the video!!! :^)

IRK: Gangnam style at my Korean elementary school

On one dreary day as I was fastidiously(on Facebook) doing paperwork, I began to hear a disturbance about the school......It came in the form of loud music.. What song was it.. it was non other than PSY Gangnam style. As much as I would have liked to continue doing paperwork, since I'm quite the diligent employee, I decided to check out what was brewing in the courtyard....HERE IS WHAT I FOUND! :^) If you are interested in teaching abroad in South Korea, or if you just like learning about people's lives abroad..

Insadong is a street in South Korea in the touristy/traditional area of korea where there are many palaces located. You can get there by going to Anguk station (on line 3) exit 5. Go straight 100m and then turn left. Or Jonggak station (line 1) exit 3. Go straight 300m then turn left at the 4 way intersection. Go straight 100m and then veer to the left road. I HOPE YOU CAN FIND IT!!! You can try on hanboks and take pictures in them! There are many traditional galleries and restaurants there. You can purchase many souvenirs and on the weekends Sat from 14:00-22:00 and Sunday from 10:00-22:00 some streets are blocked off and more cultural booths will be there. You can try many traditional Korean foods from the street. There are also Korean fortune tellers and random cultural things! ENJOY THE VIDEO!!

How to get an ESL job in South Korea

Hello again!!!! Getting a job in south korea doesn't have to be hard! The easiest way to attain a job is to use a recruiting agency. In my opinion Korvia is the best recruiting agency in Korea. I say this because they really take care of you from the time you initially apply until the time you leave Korea!! and ita absolutely 100% FREEE!!! HOLY COW!!! That's awesome!!!! Korvia is constantly in contact with you and is constantly making sure that you are taken care of. They offer many bonuses like free prepaid cellphones once you first arrive in Korea and airport transport to your new place. They also offer many opportunities to connect and meet other foreign teachers by having 4 parties per year. They are absolutely free to you!! Once you apply they create the timeline and give you your schedule of events. So all you have to do is follow what they say and as long as you interview well and are qualified for the job and a school likes you and you pass the interview all you must do is get all the documentation in! HOW EASY IS THAT!! There is, however, a lot of paperwork though.. Its quite stressful and certain documents take up to 3 months to get back. Having said this.... you know you must plan accordingly. The hiring times are September and March. So about 5 months before you plan on leaving for korea, you should apply so you can start working on some of the documents. OK!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate writing so watch the video for more details!!!!

OK!! KOREAN BUGS ARE SO BIG!!! IDK of its the healthy food they have over here, or the fact that they put their trash outside on the streets providing the bugs with nice healthy meals... but WOOOOHOOOOO!!!!! In class, due to the lack of AC inside we always have the windows open. Bugs are continually flying in.. AND THEY ARE HUGE!! There are dragon flies, wasps, bees, hornets, and eben house flies!! AND THEY ALL ARE MUCH MUCH LARGER THAN IM USED TO!!!! :^) anyway!! I hope you enjoy watching my showdown with a cricket grasshopper locusts thing in my house!!!

It is not required. Only if you want to be apart of the group. this fee will cover all of the faculty hang out times. It will also be used if you get married you will recieve a money gift from the teachers, if a parent dies or you have  a baby you will also recieve money. I forgot how much it was. It was not more than 100$. I think the highest one was 100$, others are 50$. BUT I HOPE YOU ENJOY THE VIDEO!!! my youtube page is SUBSCRIBE IF YOU WANT TO SEE MORE!!

ESL lesson fruit, counting, color review

So... I had a review day scheduled for my 1st graders. We covered, basic phrases like Hello, how are you, im happy, im sad, the numbers, the colors, fruits, basic actions (sit, jump, stand etc. ), and i like.... I needed some type of review story for them so it coul dbe somewhat of a fun day. SO I mde this video.
They loved it! I was so excited. I decided to share it on my blog.

After we watched the video I asked them questions. After each counting question we counted the fruit together.
Question 1: (I showed the banana smiling) How is the banana? happy or sad? (HAPPY YELLOW BANANA)
Question 2: How many apples were there? (my students are acustomed to answering with color as well. so 4 red apples)
Question 3: How many peaches were there?
Question 4: How many grapes were there?
Question 5: How is the banana: (show the scene of the sad banana, and make them say SAD YELLOW BANANA)
Question 6: How many oranges were there?
Question 7: How many steps did banana climb up?

After that each student made a banana ( I gave them a handout with the shape of the same banana from the video) they made either a hapy or a sad banana. The students then put them on the big tree that I pre made)
We counted the banana's together after everyone finished.

I'm so excited! LOL!!
Until next time! :^)

First things first!! Sorry it took so long for me to post the first video. I am sooo busy!! I teach 6th, 5th, 1st&2nd, and Kindergarten. between those I have to prepare 7 lessons per week!! ouch!! Thats alot!! I have no time. LOL Thats why its taking so long. Ok.. I do have time im just tired after work. I am still asjusting to the time and the FAST pace of life here. taking the bus, subway, and walking are not things I'm used to so that's why im tired! I love it here though!! I am currently waiting on my alien registration card. Without that I cannot do anything, like get internet/cable/ cellphone contract, etc.. so In order to use the internet I have to go to the PC bang!! In Korean bang 방 means room. And as we all know PC is computer... so put 2 and 2 together!! computer room!! LOL There are about 3 on each 5 blocks. LOL Not kidding!! literally, on every corner there is at least 1! The computers are fast and the screens are big and its super cheap..but there is just one problem.. CIGARETTE SMOKE!!! Smoking is allowed inside.. like at many places in Korea so it stinks!!! It gets on my clothes and I hate it!!!! Ok.. anyways back to the good, its super cheap. its 1000 korean won per hour.. which is a little less than 1 us dollar. SO its super cost effective! Its maily filled with people playing video games.. and by that I mean males. LOL Literally the only time I have seen a women inside here other than myself is today, and im quite shocked.. But she is not playing video games she is eating snacks an dhanging with some boys who ar playing video games. LOL so anyways, they are very comfortable besides the smoke an dthere are snacks!! hehe!! So thats all, watch the video for further information!!
