Friday Live: What to Pack When You’re Going to Teach English in South Korea

on March 13, 2018

So you’re contemplating heading over to teach English in South Korea? I returned from teaching English in South Korea in 2017, and today I’m sharing with you what I wish I’d taken with me and what I wish I hadn’t.

 

There are some obvious items in there like a warm coat and the right travel adapter, but look out for some of the more unexpected items like English books to read, western sized shoes for those of us with larger feet and for the ladies there’s a handy tip on the sanitary front I wish I’d known before heading over!

Is there anything you’d add or any questions you have for me on what to pack? Add your comment below!
