    Hello and welcome to EasyExpat.com -

    This topic is specifically dedicated to new comers in South Korea. We invite you to introduce yourself here!

    Why have you come here? Is it for internship? Studies? A job? Or simply in order to discover new lands?

    If you have already secured a job, how did you find it? How long do you think you will stay in South Korea?

    How was your move? What happened for your first steps here?

    What was the easiest thing / the most difficult to adapt to?

    Thanks in advance for your answers and here’s to a good discussion!

    I'm new to South korea this month. I've been here now just over 3 weeks. I came to teach English in 2 connected hagwon schools in Angang and Pohang.

    I plan to be here for a year. I found work before I came through an agency. After a lot of work getting my documents together to get here I was pretty excited about arriving.

    Since being here I am enjoying some aspects, such as the beautiful scenery and kind people. I'm also struggling with a few other aspects, such as the isolation of living in a small town where I am the only non-Korean and no one speaks English. Even my co-workers who speak English barely understand me because they are used to American English, rather than my British English.

    I haven't met any other foreigners just yet - but hoping to soon. I'm relying a lot on skyping back to the UK.

    Hopefully when I start visiting places like Busan, Deagu and Seoul I will start meeting people.
