At Teach ESL Korea, we absolutely love helping people with this amazing experience!!! Receiving an email update from a teacher who is having the time of their lives, road tripping to islands/beaches with a group of friends, or nightclubbing until 6am - makes me the happiest guy around.
Over the years we have been closely connected with a wide variety of teachers. We've been lucky enough to have met many of them during our time living in Korea (2 times), as well as going back for business trips (hosting dinners in the key cities).
All of them have a very exciting trip planned to somewhere in Asia, over the next 6 months. Isn't that alone, almost enough to make people flock to the jobs? Not many people back home are saving $1,000 a month, or going to Thailand, Laos, China, ahhh, the list goes on, haha!!!
All are willing to leave their best friends, family and comforts of home, behind.
All meet some of the closest friends they will ever have. Deeply connected in many ways.
