I would think Korea was glad too.
In August, I will have been living in South Korea for one year. I am currently teaching English at two elementary schools and one middle school. I cannot put into words how much I love this country and its people. I am leaving South Korea in August, however, mainly because I miss my family and so I can have copious amounts of sex with my boyfriend (long distance ughhh). Reason for comment:
All other problems I have with this article aside, my issue boils down to two things. It seems like you could have done a better job at being the example of someone who doesn’t fall into these, mostly internalized, pressures for your students. Also, I know we are all guilty of this but, at a certain point when do we stop taking specific, individual eccentricities and generalizing them to fit an entire country?
