spidersteacup asked: Since it seems to be the thing to do: why the follow? And since I'm looking into teaching abroad: how proficient in Korean were you before arriving?
Hey there. I seek out people interested in (broadly) asian foreign policy because i think i’ll like their posts and they might like mine. kinda makes sense, right? Anyway, i came to korea the first time with ZERO knowledge. it was a great experience but definitely very different from the one I have now, which is after I returned home and studied the language for some time. I definitely prefer this one as it is more engaging and immersive. The first trip was like a vacation where i worked on the side. this is more of a cohesive experience. where are you thinking about going?
