Made Official

July 17, 2011

Well, I finally received my contract package!!! The official dates are August 21, 2011 until August 20, 2012. Wowee! There’s nothing too note-worthy about it except that I now need to get these documents to the Korean Consulate A.S.A.P so that I can have my E2 Visa processed.

HOW EXCITING!

I’ve been told that I’ll be working with high school students (which could change). I’ve heard different things about teaching this age group (which is comparable to Canada’s grade 10-12, ages 15-18). In addition to teenagers being teenagers, these students are rather over-worked, and sometimes fall asleep in class. I suppose it’s all about how you take a situation and how you decide to teach. I hope that I can engage these students. I understand that I can’t make them want to learn English, but I can certainly try to make the experience more enjoyable for them.

I was actually given the option of working with young students (for which I’m certified and have experience) but that meant a 30 minute commute each way. No thanks. The more I think about it, the more comfortable I am teaching high school students.

So from here, thanks to delays caused by Canada Post, I’ll be making another trip to the Korean Consulate in Toronto to process my Visa. I’ll also be attending an orientation session all day on Friday! So we’ll add more preparedness on top of my preparedness. Nothing wrong with that.

Overall, I could not imagine going through this process on my own rather than with the agency.
