007 Interview – Teaching And Living in Korea, International Health Care Center, Love Motels, Food, Busan, Safety, Travel


Jessy K. Piskai www.tastyoldcabbage.com When in Korea... podcast In this episode of the WiK podcast I get to talk to my friends and ESL teachers in Korea, Sadie and Nora, about teaching and living in Korea, medical care, love motels, food, Busan, safety and travel.

Side note: Sadie mentioned that most Korean apartments don’t have ovens. While that is true the newer apartment complexes have ovens and most Americans manage to find a place to live that has an oven in the kitchen (although it might be a smaller one lol). TIP: So when you are out hunting for apartments look out for those with a dishwasher and an oven.
