xpatva's insight:

Is taught in GEPIK when I was over there (if I recall correctly).  There are some differences but probably the biggest determining factor on how one will enjoy their time in S.Korea is the relationship they have with their local school and immediate supervisors.

EFT Business Fear #1: Can I Really Make a Living Doing This ...

EFT Business Fear #1: Can I Really Make a Living Doing This ... | Teaching English Abroad | Scoop.it
Are you working part time as you build your EFT Practice? Do you have beliefs around the likelihood of creating a thriving business? Perhaps you live in a small community ...
xpatva's insight:

Yeah, you can make a living and, depending on where you teach..... save a little money.  I taught for 4 years in S.Korea.  I didn't save any money and because of my age (63-68) I didn't get a post in a big city school like I would have preferred.  But overall, I enjoyed it.

 

You'll make more money in S.Korea than in Thailand or China but the smart thing to do is to do some kind of internet marketing 'on the side'.  You'll have plenty of free time and you can make up the difference between your salary and your preferred lifestyle with the extra income you make...perhaps writing articles or something.
