Korea

From 2014 to 2016, I lived and worked in South Korea through EPIK (English Program In Korea). Although I'm now living in the U.S. once again, the experience is one I'll keep with me forever because of how uniquely challenging and truly rewarding it was. I've saved a couple blog posts from that time in order to share a snapshot of what life was like for me as an English teacher at two rural schools outside Ulsan.

I no longer have my how-to-apply posts because they're surely out of date by now, but if you have any questions about teaching in Korea, I would be more than happy to share my advice. Message me on Twitter @karakarakaraff!
