Scared of teaching in Korea? Teaching English abroad in Korea can be scary. If you started your research you have probably come across some real horror stories. 

You probably don't want to be the next one. A lot of these horror stories are about teaching English in hagwons.


Are they really that bad?

No, they are not. But you've got to do your research and if you really want to have a good experience teaching in Korea you should do some training and preparation.


This video is based on part fiction and part reality. So keep that in mind. No, you probably won't have really demonic kids, but I can tell you that some kids are a real handful and will totally stress you out if you don't know what you are doing.

It's quite possible to find a good hagwon and enjoy your year teaching in Korea.
