EPIK Orientation Lecture Guide

Welcome to all the new EPIK teachers. I realize that I meantioned a lot of websites and a lot of infomation during my lecture at Konkuk. All the links I mentioned will be in this entry.

First up I shared the Kicking it in Geumchan video by the EV Boyz. This video has everything you ever needed to know about living in Korea.

A useful gauge for what your apartment should look like are the numerous videos on YouTube that other expats have put up for thier friends and family.

If you are reading this article then you already know about EFL Classroom 2.0. This site has been the most useful in helping come up with ideas for what to do in the classroom. I highly recommend spending some quality time here browsing and meeting other teachers. Another site I recommended for teaching tips is, however I strongly recommend saving yourself a lot of trouble and staying out of the forums. is another example of free and usefull games and flashcards for EFL teachers. I highly encourage you to check out the Big Town activity.

I mentioned that all of us would eventually be doing an English Camp. Many of you were curious about what we do at English camps. This video that I made for my City's Office of Education might be helpful to you.

To review many of the foods that I mentioned, I recommended finding your local Korean Diner which served food like Gimbap, Mandu, Bi Bim Bap, donkkaseu (pork cutlet)and Ramyeon (ramen).

Another good place to feed yourself if you are eating alone is a chinese restraunt. Here you can get Bokeumbap (fried rice), Mandu (dumplings), and Jajangmyeon (black noodles).

One of the great treats of the Korean diet (for meat eaters anyways) is Korean BBQ. In Korea they are generally called Galbi restraunts and feature pork and beef that is cooked at the table. A favorite amongst expats is Sam Gyup Sal (three layer meat). Sam Gyup Sal is essentially bacon without the salt. Once a piece is cooked you wrap it in a leafy green with other seasonings and eat it. Another Korean BBQ favorite is Galbi (beef ribs).

In the end if you walk away with only one thing from my lecture I hope that it would be with my reminder to have fun and SMILE. Both will serve you well in the future.

While I am not an official for EPIK I invite you to contact me with any of you questions.

Peace and Love,
EPIK Justino

Great post for teachers! I'm doing two days of lectures this week and also next week for new SMOE teachers and I will definitely point our this post.

When I came to Korea, there really was so little information and sharing - basically zip. That's where the idea of this site came from - first the impulse to give teachers resources and benefit students. Second, to create some kind of community to temper the "distance" and loneliness of the long distance teacher. Hopefully we are making a difference.

I hope more teachers will contribute resources here and this part of things will grow....also our scribd, I've spent a lot of time on. Still lots (thousands more) of things to catalogue but it is coming along.... One way to help new teachers.

So true what you say at the end. Happiness, positive energy coats all teaching and is the "invisible" that makes learning happen and it counts most in the court of higher educational opinion. All the rest isn't dross but without happiness - a teacher is like pizza without cheese.....

Thanks, cheers,
