“Having never traveled before ESL Job Link were invaluable in helping me through the procedures required to enter Korea. They were also available to answer any questions about Korean life before I got here. Not only that, they kept tabs on me and made sure I landed safely and was happy in my job. I thoroughly enjoy my public high school teaching job. The students are wonderful and the staff has been very supportive. Each day brings about its challenges and its rewards too. The rewards vastly outweigh the challenges. The food, weather, and general environment are so different from my home. It is great to experience so many new things. I have made countless friends, Korean and foreign too. Coming to Korea was one of the most difficult decisions to make. Leaving home is a frightening prospect but I can honestly say that it has been one of the best decisions of my life. I have so many wonderful memories from school life and my social life to take with me whenever I leave Korea. A huge thank you to Don and the ESL Job Link team for helping me embark on this life changing trip.”
