Heritage Challenge: draw or imagine yourself as being born in your place of origin hundreds, or thousands of years ago.

How would your current occupation or ambition translate to that time period?

Think of it as a historical self-portrait / bio.

Since I originate from Gyeongsang province of Korea, if I were to be born in ancient times, I would be living in the Kingdom of Silla. I suppose the the closest equivalent to my occupation would be soldier / officer.

Thought I’d think of a way to kill some time during this quarantine…

may I ask you how you managed to move to Korea? I have been wanting to go there and work as an English teacher for a while now but I am not sure how to start. I am scared of being scammed or something. If you could share your experience? Do you need to know korean to teach or is just english enough? Sorry for the long question 馃ズ

This really depends on where you are from. To teach English you have to be from one of the 7 English speaking countries ( Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, the UK and Ireland, and the US), otherwise you are not able to teach English here legally (doesn’t mean some schools wouldn’t take you anyway and pay you, but that’s a whole other thing). If you are from an English speaking country usually you won’t need to know Korean (as native English teachers only need to teach in English and most likely have a Korean co-teacher doing the Korean part). Same can go for other languages too, but it’s harder to find things there (I’m teaching German e.g.). If you are a English native there are so many recruiting firms online (there are literally so manyyyy teaching jobs) one of the most popular is EPIK. 

If you are a non-English native, like me (they really only care about nationality here, they don’t care if you have a degree in english or lived several years in england, like me, i still couldn’t do it) then you mostly need to look remotely or search for schools that do teach your native language. And there language skills do mean something, because Koreans in general don’t speak English so if they say study German and don’t speak English than it doesn’t matter and they need Korean. Some schools take natives with general Korean knowledge (like where i work, i need to teach in Korean in beginner classes) or some school have a similar concept as schools for English studying where you only need to know your native language (and some english here or there can work) and you have a Korean co-teacher.

That said, when it comes to contracts in Korea, i think EPIK might be the safest?? Schools always try to do some illegal stuff.. (I’m speaking from experience as i’m living through it right now). So there is no guarantee in some things even if it’s one of the top recruiters for English teaching jobs. For other language jobs, you need to go out and find them on your own. Search on naver and find e-mails and send our your resume (that’s what i did). A lot of people wont respond some might. 

I’ll keep it at this haha, it’s super long. If you have any questions, please you can always ask me and i can help if i’m able to!! :)

I’ve been stuck inside and have been binging Netflix when I’m not rebuilding cities in Cities:Skylines. My finace got me really into this show called Kingdom. It’s an amazing Korean, Zombie, period piece. It’s amazing. SO I’m drawing a portrait of Ju Ji Hoon who plays the main prince in the show. Here is the the first step and I will post more progress as I go.
