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.. SUBSCRIBE!!!!!! :^)

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!!!!
