Welcome to Expacked (Issue #54)

January 7, 2010

Welcome back to all those teachers who have just stared work again.  I hope your vacation was a great one and that you have come back feeling refreshed for the new year ahead – Of course, you are also wishing you where still on holiday! Huge Snowfall in Seoul Jan 2010small

I was one of the many people caught out by the huge dumping of snow we got on Monday.  It was amazing to be in, however it did take my bus 3 hours to travel the 10kms I needed to school.

It was the heaviest snowfall in Seoul since they started recording them way back in 1937.  Have a look at this article from the Korean Times for the full picture: Seoul Records Heaviest Snowfall Since 1937.

There were some great non-teaching related stories this week, so I have include a couple here for your interest.  I really liked the one about how Korea had developed from a small down and out nation in the early 1900s, to be a major world player in less than 100 years.

Here’s the stories making the news this week:

Feel free to comment on any of the stories and make use of the easy sharing options available – in just a few quick clicks you can share any of these stories to all your teaching mates in Korea.

I hope you enjoy the read and, of course, have a good laugh at this week’s jokes.
