A Day in the Life – Yeosu Apartment Tour

We have finally started to settle into our new city, Yeosu! We have been so excited to get back to blogging and share some of our new experiences with you. To start it off, we decided to film an apartment tour! Our new place is so different from our tiny studio in Seoul, which you can see here. Check it out, and let us know what you think!

We’re Moving!

Our first year in South Korea is coming to an end. On Monday, we finished our contract with our school, but are helping out with classes until the end of this week. As ESL teachers in Korea, the school provided us with housing. Now that we are done with our contracts, we have to get out of our apartment by the end of the week. This is why we have been a bit AWOL this week on the blog. Continue reading

Fall in Korea

This week brings another intensive round of training for us at school. Everyday we have to wake up at 6 am to commute on a 2 hour + bus ride into Seoul for three hours of training and then hurry back to our schools in order to teach our classes until late into the evening.

Free ESL Games and Books!

Hey guys! With the start of our new fall semester, we have been on the look out for more ESL websites that could help us out with our new lessons.

We normally post A Day in the Life on Mondays, however we are going to have to push these back a day or so because Mondays are now our longest day of the week. Continue reading
