Hi all! :)

My boyfriend and I are planning on moving to Korea for 1-year to become English teachers.
We joined this site to create a blog for our friends and families to keep in contact with us while there, but we soon realized that this site was so much more than that! I'm excited to get in contact with other travellers.

Though we still have about 6 months until we leave for our adventure, I was hoping that some of you might have some advice about living and working in Korea (or an East Asian country in general).

Neither one of us has been to East Asia or taught English before, so we are quite new to this whole thing.

I would definitely appreciate any travel tips, info on customs, etiquette, etc.

Thanks so much!

Carlin,
Here is an older post that addresses teaching English in Korea. I would contact several of the posters for additional information. Good luck with your planning.

Do you know whereabouts in Korea you are going?

I believe that we will be going to Incheon...at least that was our first choice.
