Welcome to Expacked (Issue #65)

March 25, 2010

For some reason I have two other newsletters to include in Expacked this week.  Both are relevant however, as the first one is from GEPIK and the other is from the Seoul Survivors, an expat sports team based in Seoul.  Rugby in Seoul

I always encourage native English teachers to get involved in groups around your area.  It doesn’t matter whether its a sport like rugby and soccer, or a hobby like drama and hiking, as long as its an opportunity to meet new friends and have new experiences.

If you are are part of an expat group and would like me to include some info (like a newsletter) in Expacked, I would be happy to hear from you.  Just click here and send me your details in the email form.

GEPIK Newsletter

For GEPIK teachers, the 2nd edition of Bibimbap, GEPIK’s bi-monthly newsletter, has just been released.  This newsletter helps highlight GEPIK’s activities over the past couple of months and this edition includes some interesting articles written by other native English teachers.  Click here to download Bibimbap,

Seoul Survivors Newsletter

Our second newsletter, within a newsletter, comes from the Seoul Survivors.  The Seoul Survivors is an expat rugby team in Seoul and they have been a strong local team for over 20 years.  Expat rugby teams are now starting to spring up all over Korea and I would definitely recommend anyone who is interested to get involved in a team.  Click here to read Seoul Survivor’s monthly newsletter.

Korean Baseball League Starting this Week

Baseball is one of Korea’s biggest sports and this week is opening weekend for Korea’s top professional competition.  I have included a couple of links to help you find out more about the opening weekend and Korean baseball (here and here).

Here are the teaching 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 with other teachers in Korea.

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