Korea can be a great choice if you want to live in a foreign country and teach English. There are many opportunities here. Many choose Korea for the rate of pay and the cultural experience. Visa requirements have changed since 12/07, so do some research in this area if you want to teach here.

Highlights include: differences between Korean & Japanese visas, letter of release, teaching privately and what surprises could occur- be careful!

5:09 Living Space, not bad! A brand new teacher has positive comments about his students and shows us his apartment. His space includes a bed, comforter, refrigerator, washing machine (no dryer), stove, microwave, desk, bookshelf, & a decent bathroom-all paid for by his school. It appears he has wood floors too. Korea seems to offer better accommodations than most countries, but I recommend asking your potential school specific questions regarding apartments before you commit- maybe you can get a bit more if you ask.
