Are you a teacher? Write current and useful materials for www.teachingkimchi.com to discuss your experiences and others in Korea
Put your sword to the best use at www.teachingkimchi.com. Gain exposure for your work as well as meet similar writers like you to discuss what foreign teachers should, shouldn’t could, and couldn’t do in Korea. Imagine the exposure to a whole new world of culture and variance! What else could a writer look for?
Think about everyday life and you can see your mind spinning through things that have happened to you and will happen for most people. Write about them and just about anything for that matter. Start your articles from the time you get out of bed to the time you get in. Hey! You could also write about your dreams. We are open to ideas and creativity. Please make sure it has some kind of interesting point of view of Korea.
Articles should be about 400-600 words.
Articles fall into one of two categories:
1. You are what you eat- style – These are most interesting as they can come from real life experiences in Korea. You can be the hero of your articles.
2. Pass the buck – style – These articles need to have a focused subject. Let’s say you talk about the nightlife, beaches, leisure, food, health, bath and beauty, etc…Activities that engage people would be very welcome. Do not get confused! Your experience eating live baby octopuses could fall into the “You are what you eat- style”. Try to be very specific so that your readers understand the essence of the article from the very start.
Before you begin you can ask yourself:
-What is it that I’m writing about and is my point clear enough?
-Have I put my opinions also in the article?
-Is my article easy to understand? Plain is clear and also helpful. (You should bear in mind that many people reading this site have learned English as a second language and it’s important to keep the words interesting, however too much of your country’s slang will not really help as your article might just miss the point)
-Is it catchy? First impression is the best, so start it at its best. People even gist through the article at times, so make sure your paragraphs start in an interesting manner. A clear Introduction, body and conclusion is vital to leave a lasting impression.
-Does this article talk of Korea?

The food here is very good and kind of pricey but worth it. The burritos are good, but the tacos are excellent – served open faced and prepared Mexican style. They even have home made salsa, both green and red. Their tortillas are decent and reasonably priced as well.
