channel, I receive many questions about the financial side of teaching English in Korea. Many people look briefly at the benefits package and wonder if the numbers will allow one to "get by" or even save some money. I even wondered the same thing myself when I started the whole process. Now I've been in Korea for over a year and a half and I can say with confidence that you will be pleasantly surprised.
In this vlog, I break down the "average" teachers income and monthly expenditures and how it all comes out in the end - including bonuses and all. EPIK is possibly one of the best English programs in the world by any standard, and they show that they want to take care of their teachers.
Have a look. Heeeeeere's the video!
