ESL | The Open Class

WORKING in a public school in Korea means that once a year, in the run up to your contract renewal, you will face your open class. I've done 4 now, 3 of my own and 1 with my Co-Teacher at the time. I quite enjoy open classes, and in this post I'm going to share… Continue reading ESL | The Open Class

These Geeky Adventures | Boseong & Yeosu

THE sun has arrived in Korea! The weather is becoming deliciously warm and that means trips.

ANDONG is known for its Folk Festival, held in October every year,… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Andong

ESL | Why Korea?

I'VE thrown teaching materials at you for some weeks now, and thought it was time to take a pause and talk about how and why I came to be in Korea in the first place. Perhaps you're looking into Korea yourself, or perhaps you are simply interested in other peoples stories. Whatever the reason, I… Continue reading ESL | Why Korea?

봄봄봄

IT'S that time of year again! In Jinhae the cherry blossoms are out, and Busker Busker's Cherry Blossom Ending is back in the charts. Again. Although, personally, my favourite Spring song is Roy Kim's 봄봄봄 (spring, spring, spring).   JINHAE is home to the biggest and most well known of all the cherry blossom festivals in… Continue reading 봄봄봄
