Institute Review
I've worked here for one year. I knew no Korean when I arrived but I was taken out for every meal for the first few days. Staff accompanied me to the immigration office, bank, and drove me to a big supermarket for my first big shopping trip to furnish the apartment. Everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful, despite limited English skills. I was fed at work, although this was not included in my contract, and later given a food allowance, which was a nice bonus. The director regularly takes staff out after work for meals and drinks and teachers often cook lunch together before work in the office kitchen and chat. Some of the students are children/relatives of the teachers and their friends and there is a family atmosphere. 

I was given complete control of my classroom to discipline and determine the syllabus as I wanted. There is no class supervision, but there is assistance if requested. Students range from kindergarten all the way through to adults. Largest class size has been 8 students (elementary). Many classes have been 1:1. Dress code is casual. I have never had negative feedback from parents or the director. I have done many practical classes with the kids such as crafts and cookery, which have had positive feedback. There is no testing in these after-school classes and no pressure to achieve particular learning goals. Sometimes there are last minute timetable changes and I sometimes have no notice of new students in my class, so too few handout copies. The printer/photocopier is located at the sister academy a few streets away.

It has been a very positive experience and I would happily renew my contract but I want to move for personal reasons. The director has already provided a lovely reference for my job search. 

The living situation has been the only downside. The apartment is clean, newly outfitted, has a wifi connection and is in the centre of town. Unfortunately, it has no windows. That's why I have marked it down. I was offered a swap with another member of staff but had to choose between wifi and windows. I chose wifi! 
The pros
Meal allowance, location (next to some beautiful beaches and Seorak national park - great surfing and hiking). 30 minutes to Sokcho (Emart, cinema, etc.), 3 hours to Seoul.
