Nan Boyce, 24, unwed, US expat. Here we get down to the nitty gritty details and then ease into the hobbies and quirks later. Living in a culture obsessed with age and marital status has changed not only how I introduce myself, but how I view the world and education.  I’ve taught ESL in a rural posting with the EPIK program for ten months. I hope this blog to helps future guest teachers adjust to life and work in Korea. Everyone has their own experience here, it varies wildly from nightmare to dream job. I have been extremely fortunate in my placement, and if someone can learn from my mistakes and experience then my time here will have been worth something.
