Top 5 Experiences I’ve Had in Korea!

Starting a New Role

It’s been two full years since I began living and teaching in Seoul, and I owe it all to Aclipse. While I’m so grateful for my teaching role, I’m especially grateful for the additional opportunities I’ve had here in Korea. A month after I moved here, I interviewed to become a Marketing Assistant and got the job! My job has been to blog, post photos and answer emails from potential candidates. Being able to show others the beauty and adventure of living in Korea has been extremely rewarding. Surprisingly enough, one of the candidates I helped would become my co-worker at the same branch!  This post is dedicated to the top 5 experiences in Korea I’ve had with links to previous blogs to follow.

Top 5 Experiences in Korea

Thanks to my new role, I made sure I was not a home-body! I’ve had all the incentive I needed to get out, meet locals, and try to assimilate as quickly as I could. It’s been my goal to try at least two new things every month, and if I got a chance to get outside of Seoul, even better!

1. Here is my blog post on paragliding in Danyang!

2. Click here to learn about my Yeosu Weekend Trip.

Become a Marketing Assistant!

The greatest part of all is that there is way more things I’d love to add to this list, but its been so hard to choose! And I’m not done- I just extended my contract for the second time!  If sharing your story and your experiences is something you’d like to do, let your recruiter know! The team is always on the lookout for people who want to share their experiences.

Giselle Moreno is from California, USA where she attended the University of California, Riverside. While a student, she always worked with international students and she decided to teach English abroad upon graduating during her third year of university. It was through the experiences of being an English tutor for international students that she felt really fulfilled. She found it particularly easy to get along with Korean students which is why she decided to pursue a teaching opportunity in Korea. She even attended Yonsei University in Seoul for a semester as a study abroad student and fell in love with the city. She is currently working at ChungDahm Learning’s April Daechi branch located in Gangnam, Seoul.
