So last night, on the ride into Haeundae Beach, where I’m living and teaching, one of the fellow teachers informed me that I would be teaching today. I’m sure you could imagine what was running thru my mind. To my dismay, it went fairly easy. After the first second class that I taught, I had a good idea of what I needed to do. And honestly a lot of it is saying words/sentences and having the students say it back to me. Lets just say it’s not rocket science. They kids are great and so far, being as it’s my first day, the job ain’t so bad either.
About the place that I’m living, Haeundae Beach. It’s in Pusan, which is on the southern part of South Korea. I’m relatively 25 minutes from walking to the beach. I live on the 19th floor of one of the many apartment buildings in Korea. I’m amazed at how many apartment towers there are. They are 20 - 30 stories high of apartments. It’s astounding how many there are. The one I live in, is a 3 minute walk to work. I literally live caddie corner to my job. It’s in downtown, and it’s the richest area of all Korea - so I’m told. It is a very nice neighborhood to say the least. From what I’ve heard, I was very lucky to get this area. The scenery is amazing, especially when looking out the 19th story window. I’m surrounded my lush green mountains. It really is a beautiful city.
