It’s been roughly a fortnight since I finally boarded the plane with two suitcases and a hard-fought visa to start teaching in Seoul, South Korea. I’ve visited my brother (who I’m living with) here on several occasions, so the city itself didn’t scare me. I have, however, never taught children before. I have no education degree, no relevant qualifications from back home, but most other foreigners who come here to teach are exactly the same. It’s nuts.
