When I finished college, like many recent grads, I felt lost. I didn't know what to do next in my life. I couldn't get a job in my major and my loan payments were looming around the corner, and I was stuck at my parents’ house. So I fell back on my next interest: the Chinese language and travelling. I always wanted to see Asia, and what better time than now?
I searched online through job boards and found an ad from Adventure Teaching. I applied and was admitted. I got lots of help and directions on what to do next, like taking an online TEFL course and the visa application process.
Although I originally applied to teach in China because I have some experience with the Chinese language, Adventure Teaching informed me that I must be at least 25 and have at least two years of teaching experience, so they suggested I teach in South Korea, a country in which they have a lot of experience with placing teachers. So I kept an open mind and agreed, and here I am in Korea, happy as a clam!
