Asia is a hotbed for English education, and it has been for well over a decade. If you're making the move to teach English in South Korea, this episode will give you ideas and things to consider as you're making your decision and will help you with advice if you decide to make the move.
If you're already teaching in South Korea, you will find this episode interesting, and we'd love for you to share your opinions and best advice below to help others to be more informed.
A Different Perspective
We're talking with Luke Kim, the founder of Luke Look English. He will share a very unique perspective that many have never thought that much about... "What is a Korean person's advice to an ex-pat who is moving to South Korea to teach English?"
Luke shares some of his ideas and advice on:
- deciding to make the move
- adjusting once you're in South Korea
- expanding your options to make more money
- teaching adult students
Luke and Jesse discuss ways to treat yourself like a professional at your EFL teaching job.
Whether you're beginning your English teaching adventure, or you've spent a few years in South Korea, or any country, there is valuable information that you can take that will help you get to the next level in your teaching career... or after you are finished.

Get a pen and paper or your voice recorder ready because this episode will be interactive. Jesse will guide you through the Proust Personality Test to go deep into getting to know yourself even better.
The Proust Personality Questionnaire is a fun exercise that will ask you different levels of personal questions that you probably don't think about in your daily life.
Answer these 35 questions honestly for yourself either orally or written, and you will surprise yourself. You will also learn some new vocabulary and have practice forming questions in English.
There is no vocabulary lesson at the end of this episode, but I explain some unusual vocabulary words during the test that will help you answer the questions. Let me know about your results.
