I want to be even more special than my mom/wife/dog makes me feel. Vote for Ask the Expat in 10 Magazine's online poll and I'll buy you your very own Crossfire. I promise.
My name is Bernal and I am 28 years old. I developed IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) a few years back. Thanks to that I feel uncomfortable at places without bathrooms. So every time I go to a place the first thing I do is try to find the nearest bathroom, and when I located it, I feel better. I will go to Korea for a while. I was wondering if you can tell me how often you can find a bathroom in Seoul, and if is true that since the world cup, is some type of law in which allows any foreigner to use any public bathroom, even buildings and stuff.That sounds pretty awful, Bernal. There's nothing better than a spastic colon on a hot June day here in Seoul.
I'm from Guatemala and here you dont find public washrooms.. only restaurants and stuff like that.
I want to take my girlfriend to a Valentine's day. I have a Korean teacher at my hagwon helping me with tickets. He called and got some info. You can't purchase tickets until 1 week before, and they are only available online. The only tickets that will be available the day of at the box office are the left overs, from what hasn't sold online throughout the week. He helped me with a profile on ticketlink. But I've heard that even with this profile, foreigners can have difficulty purchasing tickets online, something about the citizen ID # being required. So I'm assuming that my ID # from my Alien Card won't work.on I didn't actually get around to answering the question. Luckily, the questioner told me that he had solved the problem. Check out his answer and his blog over at Rip City to Seoul.
I'm currently working in Korea, but my contract ends in May. I don't really want to get tied into another 12 month contract straight away (unless I can find my dream ESL job!) so am considering teaching at.Do you know if any recruiters specialise in recruiting for summer camps? And when donormally become available? Finally, is there much competition for these positions?
I am still in Canada searching for teaching work in Korea. It's been like two months and I just don't know what job I want. There are so many that advertise LONG hours and those don't appeal to me and these so-called recruiters never listen to my demands.Nothing better than new young teachers who want a job, but don't like working. That mentality --in part-- is why I don't hire young teachers or anyone fresh out of college anymore.
I started to see more afterschool and afternoon positions recently. They sound great! Why doesn't everyone want those? Are they hard to get?
Since so many people live in Seoul now, what's going to happen during Chusok and Chinese New Years in the future? No more traffic jams?

A day or two ago I wrote to "Ask A Korean" because I had a question about getting rid of a car in Korea. He wrote back and said he has never owned a car in Korea, but recommended I write to you and ask.
I am an English teacher about to finish my third year here in Korea. A while back, I bought a (beautiful 1992) KIA from a woman who was leaving. We went to all the correct offices and did it by the book. I have insurance, the title, etc. However, now my time here is ending and a couple people want to buy it but in a more under the table kind of manner. Do you know how to get the vehicle out of my name with out putting into somebody else's? Or, going a different direction, do you know if there is a company who buys back used cars? This probably wouldn't be a big deal in Seoul or Busan, but I'm like in Pohang.
Does F2 actually do anything for you?
I just had an interview with a kids hakwon and they told me I have to give a demo class. What the hell!!! I've never taught EFL to children and am totally freaking out! The demo class is only 10 minutes, so I just need a few ideas. Can you or your readers help?Well, since you've presumably been in the adult racket for a contract or two, you know something about the industry. I don't think I need to go over lesson plans with you. It wouldn't help in a quick demonstration anyways. There are, however, a few tips that schools look for.
