ESL Lessons for Public School Teachers

After many hours of difficult work, the ESL Resources section is finally up and ready to go. We have compiled our lesson plans and materials, so that you could use them yourselves. We painfully discovered that finding resources online can be very difficult, as we have to sort through a lot of material before we find something useful for our specific classes. What we have here as a result is much of the materials we have used in teaching our classes, from the Powerpoints to the Handouts to the YouTube clips. The public board is supposed to be teaching a uniform curriculum, as all of the textbooks should be teaching the same content in the same week. And so – all of you current or potential GEPIK teachers – the week that you’re teaching Comparative Adjectives to your second graders or Emotions and Gestures to your first graders, you should surely find something here of use to you.

The materials are free to download, in both Mac and PC versions. Only the Public Middle School section is up right now, but Martina’s High School section should be up soon as well. Some materials from our Extra Classes are up as well, which are not as strictly textbook-based as the other materials. These lessons can be used in classes of 2-20, and can be used for any level. Let us know if these materials are of any use to you, or Contact Us if there’s anything you need us to clarify.

  4. Whoa that's a lot of questions. Let me try to answer them all:

    1. We're both teachers in Canada, so that's how we got started. We knew about teaching before we got here.
    2. There is no clear curriculum when you teach here. Every school has a different approach. You'll have to come and play it by ear.
    3. Yes, our students knew some English. For those that didn't understand what we're saying, co-teachers were there to help
    4. I think there are support groups, but we haven't been to any of them.
    5. The children in general are a lot more studious, it seems, because of the looming University Entrance Exams that are a big deal.
    6. There are no pre set up programs. You gotta make most of it yourself.

    Yeah!

  5. Thanks Chaeji! Glad you like our videos. As for your question, I know a few people who started off in Korea being shy and introverted, but soon got very comfortable in the classroom, and became much more outspoken. I think teaching is a great way to get over your shyness :D As for JUST English, it's like 99.9% English. We also use a lot of visual aids to help our in the classroom, so our PowerPoints are loaded with graphics and animations and whatnot. As for our first day of working, we were prepared: we had a short presentation about ourselves and our lives back in Canada, and then we played an Icebreaking game: Two Truths and a Lie, and had students introduce themselves the same way. As for preferring foreign people, I'm not all too sure about that. I know a few people who are teaching here and are Korean, and they seem to be doing fine.

    Yeah!

  7. Well, you can check out our Teaching in Korea FAQ for starters: http://www.eatyourkimchi.com/korea-faq/teaching-i

    Long story short, contact a recruiter. Give them your info, and they'll find you a job.

    Yeah!
