Welcome to Expacked (Issue #20)

April 29, 2009

I am looking forward to the long weekend ahead and I hope most of you will be out there making the most of it.  

You may have noticed that, much to my surprise, Expacked is continuing to go strong and this week is the 20th issue of this weekly newsletter.  Expacked has grown a lot over this time and its great to see more and more readers coming on-board.

As many of you know, I started this newsletter because most teachers seemed to be in the dark over whats happening in Korea and what directly affects them.  Its important to understand how things work, how to have a great experience here and, of course, how to become an even better teacher.  

If Expacked has helped you, I am sure it will also help others.  So my challenge to you this week is to send a link of this newsletter through to more of your friends teaching in Korea.  If they also like it, get them to send it through to their friends.  People can share Expacked through the “Share” button below, through Facebook, Twitter, email and word of mouth.

In a big story this week, it looks promising that the Korean Government could ease some of the restrictions on E-2 working visas.   Although this is not going to happen overnight, this could allow us to finally take on secondary jobs teaching English privately.  More on this story below.

I have also included a special notice below that Hana Bank customers will not be able to withdraw any money of this upcoming weekend. 

As usual, we have a great summary of stories this week and the quick links are on the right.  I hope you enjoy the read and, of course, this week’s joke.
