Teaching English as a foreign language in Asia
Between 2016 and 2017 I spent a year teaching English in South Korea. I had considered teaching ESL for years. Despite a clear lack of training and experience, as is probably shared by 90% of all ESL teachers. After South Korea I was almost positive I would never teach again.
As amazing and truly life changing of an experience as it was, I had pretty much concluded teaching wasn’t for me. Ironically as I write this I’m standing on a metro train in Shenzhen, China.
And yes, I’m here teaching English.. Again.
