Hello Marcus. I recently received a phone call for an interview to teach in Korea as a ESL. The first thing I did was search the internet to find some information about the experience from other people who have taught there. From what I can see you taught in Korea in 2006 and my first impression after reading the blog was that you weren't totally satisfied with the experience.
I was just wondering if you could give me more information about what the job was like and about your life in Korea in general. As you can understand this is an extremely difficult decision to make, so I would appreciate it if you could send me some feedback. If you do not want to reply here but would prefer to send me an email instead, my address is jkk269@nyu.edu.

Thanks in advance for your help. I would have sent you an email instead of posting here but I couldn't find your email address :)
Please respond if you can...

John

I began the first half of this article (Notre Dame Review #4) by mentioning some of the limits to the legendary hospitality Ireland has shown to its poets. If you arrive in Ireland from any point of departure outside of Eastern Europe, you will indeed find a public far more willing than the one you left behind to grant poets the recognition all but the most ascetic secretly crave. However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
