My name is Gamble Danielle Kersey and I am currently a Native ESL teacher in South Korea. I work for Princeton English School, a medium-sized, trustworthy academy in Ulsan, South Korea.
We have 2 Native ESL teachers, and the Korean teachers are young, energetic, well-traveled teachers.
The atmosphere here is very relaxed, yet productive. You are only required to be a quality Native ESL teacher at a quality academy!
The co-directors are also young, and they have both lived abroad, so they understand the plight of the foreigner.
In addition to understanding their teachers, they also respect their teachers’ various teaching styles.
You definitely have the freedom to be creative here!
Also, they attempt to resolve misunderstandings through mutual respect and understanding: it is even in the contract that they will do this!
The co-directors will also do their best to work around your requested holidays.
Finally, they are trustworthy, which is something you should especially consider when making your decision on where to teach.
When considering Ulsan, you should check out the information available online.
Ulsan is a mid-sized developing industrial city. Ulsan does not have all of the cultural offerings available in Seoul or Busan, but it is a rather comfortable size.
You can easily find your way around the city and make friends. The foreign community is a rather tight-knit group, which can be very helpful when living abroad.
Whenever you get bored, Busan and Seoul are not too far away for a weekend escape. Remember: South Korea is quite small, thus every point is extremely accessible!
I hope this helps you make the best decision you can, and my co-directors and I wish you luck in your decision.
Please contact Princeton English School for more information about this awesome opportunity!
