Hi All,

I am looking to move to Seoul (or one of its many suburbian Cities) in September 2018 together with my Korean wife. We want to spend a couple of years in her home country. We currently live in Dublin, Ireland and I just wanted to put out the feelers to get some other expat insights around, rent (or Joense), job search (preferably in my field as IT consultant) and studying Korean.
I am still very bad at Korean, despite two beginners courses, duolingo and some very basic converastions with my wife. It just doesn't stick in my head. :-/
How are you picking up Korean, how long did it take you?
It'd be great to see what experiences other people had...

Cheers,

Andreas

Hey everyone!

I use to live in Incheon as an elementary school teacher. I'm no longer in Korea but I loved it and miss it so much. I also still keep in contact with my Korean friends, still study the language and still keep up with the news there.  Oh and I was in Seoul all of the time and it remains one of my favorite cities. I'm moving to Paris this year but Korea still has a piece of my heart!

Thanks for the motivational speech :-) Looking forward to my adventure now too!

Hi everyone! I'm Maria, I am Honduran and am looking into moving to Korea at the end of the year. If anyone has tips on how to apply for English speaking or Spanish speaking only jobs I would appreciate it. I currently work in Public Relations in Honduras but my boyfriend recently got a job in South Korea and I would be willing to move there for the duration of his contract. If anyone has tips I'm all ears! :)

Hi all,

I have accepted a new job which will be located in Busan, Korea. I'll be there early July.  Any advise on where I can find a decent apartment would be helpful.

It's quite normal to find house through consulting brokers. They are in general having
or sharing each other the information on the houses appeared on the market with different size, location, rental prices, and so on. I'd like to recommend you to contact several brokers in local for comparison.

Hello everyone,

I'm Begum. An English teacher living in Turkey. I'm 24 years old. I have graduated 2 years ago and have been a teacher for some semesters in a language school.
I'm interested in Korea and its culture. My interest started with Korean dramas, and later on I studied Korean in TOMER (TÖMER).
I want to work in South Korea as an English teacher. But I'm not exactly sure if I can apply to the job offers on sites. I hear that there are programs I can apply for exchange teachers here in Turkey but I don't want to leave such a subject to possiblities or luck.

I would appreciate the help, and thanks for reading. Have a nice day ^^

Languages:  Turkish (native)
                      English (fluent)
                      Korean (lower intermediate)

Hi everyone,

I am from The Netherlands and I live in Seoul for little over a year now. I share a rooftop home with my Korean Girlfriend.

I fell in love with Korea 5 years ago when I studied Korean at the Sungkyunkwan university. Ever since I wanted to come back to Korea to make a living. Now I teach English at several academies and I started my own YouTube channel (SexyGreen - for those who are interested).

I want to share my experiences with the rest of the world and show how a Dutchi mixes in with the Koreans.

I would love to read more about other people's experiences while living here, both the good and bad things.

I am ready to connect!

Bart

Hello everyone !
I'm Mégane a french expat living in Korea from 1 and half year. Married with a Korean man. I am looking for a job near Seoul / Ilsan and i also hope to meet new people :)

Hey there...

Australian here. I have lived in Korea for over 7 years in total; 5 years straight and the rest being 3 or 6 month visits. Last visit was 2 years ago and I think I'd enjoy spending a few more years there, soon.
I've never lived in or anywhere near Seoul and, in my opinion, I don't think I'd like it. I did a 1-year stint in a small town where I was the only English teacher, and foreigner for 100kms - best year ever.

I think packing up and moving to a different country only to live near and hang out with other foreigners is a total waste of the experience; may as well just stay home.

Korea is a barrel of fun, so much to do, and outside of the plethora of stuff to do in Korea, there's Japan...I loved the fact that Japan, being 3 hours away from Busan by hydrofoil, was close enough for trips or even weekends away.  There's also China and Russia, but visas were needed for me to visit and spend time there.

Maybe a show based around this forum's members would be a good move.
We have lots of American members that have moved all over the world, something that'd make good TV in the states.
We have people that have settled all over the world, some for work, some for love, and a few for cheap beer :D.
There's a whole television series just from this forum.
If the idea has legs, contact the admin (or send me a message and I'll pass it on for you).

Hello!
I am looking at moving to Daegu in Feb 2019 to teach English.
I recently completed my masters in Ireland in anthropology. I come from many places.
I would love to connect with people living in Daegu and find out more about what the city offers.
I love traveling, culture, language, music, food, drink, socialising. I like making art, writing, gentle yoga among other things.
Out of curiosity, are there places where I could take say an art class in Daegu for a reasonable price? Would I have to speak Korean or could I get by without it?
Thanks,
Regards,
-Katy

Many thanks,
