This is a term that you will become very familiar with after you land, settle in and indulge in the incredibly rich culture as an EPIK program participant living and teaching English in South Korea. Private academies , also known as Hagwons , are more likely to function as a business than a school. Teachers will often get paid more here, and work with more foreign teachers as they will often be completely English-focused schools. Students will go to a Hagwon for kindergarten or arrive there after school for English-intensive classes. I personally taught at a Hagwon and was lucky enough to end up in a great neighborhood in Seoul, which is right where I wanted to be. It was the number of students being pulled out of, or put into classrooms in the middle of a term.

It was really useful to see blogs give their timeline of their experiences during my application process. It made me less worried and patient with the whole process.

It worked out with Greenheart beacuse of the time difference. When its is 3pm in England it is 9am in Chicago , so I was able to send back my corrections after work in England while they were just beginning their day in Chicago. Before my interview my with Greenheart I received a list of questions from them, which I made sure I prepared for to make sure I made the best impression possible with my EPIK interviewer. I scheduled my interview with Greenheart the next day at 4.

Hello everyone. After getting a question a few days ago, I thought it might be helpful to make a blog post about my entire EPIK application timeline. So, I have gone back through all my email correspondences and have gathered my personal timeline. I hope anyone reading this will find this post helpful. I liked using myTEFL as I feel the information learned was good and you can email them if you have any questions about the quizzes. My job placement coordinator was Luba. So that was my application timeline. It was a two-month process that felt like foreveerrrrrr lol. I hope this can give more people an idea of what their own application timeline might look like.
