The school I am referring to is:
Jung Chul Jr. Sinnae Dong, Jung Nang Gu, Seoul. South Korea.
* Near Bongwhasan Station, Line 7
First of all, DO NOT WORK AT THIS SCHOOL. I had a horrible experience here, as did all of the other foreign teacher that came before me. About 7 months into my contract, I got sick, and the school suspected swine flu, so they fired me!!!
This was clearly to get out of paying me my severance and airfare home. The way I was treated throughout this ordeal was unbelievab
Also, they told me I was paying into medical insurance, but then when I had to go to the doctor, I had none, so this may have also played into why they ditched me at first sign of having a health problem.
Other then that, the school is very poorly run, with little to no teaching materials. The children are loud and have no respect, and you will have extra tasks like having to visit other schools to hand out flyers and teaching classes at other schools that are a 1.5 hour commute away, 3 times a week.
I can honestly not express enough how much anyone and everyone should avoid this school. I tried to take the principal to labor court over my ordeal, but trust me, the Korean labor laws will not protect you as a foreigner. Just do yourself a favor and avoid this school at all costs.
From what I can gather, this is not typical of all Jung Chuls, but for the Sinnaedong location, near Bongwhasan station, be advised!
