Fortunately, I was able to go home and rest.
Training has been really comprehensive, and from what I have read from other blogs and Dave's ESL cafe that training can either be existent or non-existent. So I am happy to have this training, despite how intense it is. You know a company cares about you if they take the time to train you and give you booklets with information about teaching. I know from my experience as a camp counselor that some companies will just do a really shitty job of training and still call it training.
But we won't really know if any of this will pay off till my first day of teaching which is next Monday. (By the way any 'day' references are always going to be from the Korea perspective.)
Ooo some good news. I am going to be moving into an Office Tel, which for me has a lot of romantic notions of better space and provisions. My supervisor did tell me it is bigger than most Office Tels so that is great. Again, though we won't really know till I step foot in it. But moving out of my Love Motel will be a nice change.
Ahhh well I am just adjusting to this foreigner life here. I think I am doing a good job of getting by despite I have little speaking ability in Korean. Some things I would like to get done such as....
- Getting a cellphone.
- Getting a bank account.
- Getting my health insurance.
- Buying a better pillow.
And so on...
Till then I will grateful for what I do have and how far I have come from just last year.
