Help...I'm so lost

Postby mimiahn79 » June 30th, 2010 6:36 am

Hello and thank you for clicking :D
First off, a little info about myself:
I'm 23 and a Korean American. I just graduated from college a semester ago and I want to travel to Korea before I start law school and live there for a while. I speak fluent Korean as well as fluent English and I am currently a citizen of the States.
I'm leaving mid August in Korea to work there and live there for about 3 months. I was told by my relatives that I can get a job tutoring and my friend says she can get me an internship at arirang tv...this sounds good but there isn't any certainty and I'm worried about living arrangements and spending budget.
I'd like to stay in a 하숙집 (places where students stay) or a small apt. but I don't know where to go to find out prices or availabilities. I speak fluent Korean but I don't read very well and all the places I'm stumbling across are in Korean.
Does anyone have more information that can help? Any information would be super helpful.

THANKS!

Hello mimiahn79~~

:P

Welcome to KoreanClass101.com!
What should I call you? Do you have English or Korean name? I guess you have both.
My name is Tim! Call me Tim!

First, it's very hot in Korea right now, very humid! be aware of that!

Second, do you know where you are going to work for? What kind of work? I guess you are going there to teach English. If you let me know where the office is located, I might give you some good tips.

Third, there are tons of private English schools in Korea. If you don't like your work or the employer abuses his/her power over you, just quit! There are better places for you to be able to teach English with good working condition.

Last, I know you are Korean-American, which means you would know both cultures very well but, knowing in your head and living actually in the place is quite different. If you feel stressed or discouraged by any reason, come here and leave message to me or to many friends around here. That would help you relieve your stress.

I would do my best to help you out not physically but mentally since I am not in Korea now.
cheers,

Your friend, Tim 8)

Thanks for the support. I'll post back when I find out specifically what city I'll be staying in. I'm planning on going to the Korean embassy tomorrow to get an f-4 visa (apparently I can get one if I'm of Korean descent?)

Again thanks!
