Printer-friendly version

Fourteen days of work and I got my first cold from the kids. During my last teaching contract, I was sick all the time. I learned to go to the doctor early and often. Whenever I waited, things got really bad.

I went to the doctor yesterday. I don’t think I have health insurance yet, but the cost was 13,000₩ to see the doctor (and use the nasal cleaning station) and 8,000₩ for three days of medicine (three times a day). That’s approximately $18.82 US. The entire process took about 40 minutes. Hope it works quickly!

By the way, for those that need help going to the doctor in Korea when you have a cold, this is what I say:

I’m sick: 나아파요.

My head hurts: 머리가 아파요.

My throat is sore: 목이 아파요.
