Welcome to Expacked (Issue #66)

April 1, 2010

You are probably wondering why I would choose this picture for the introduction this week.  March and April are traditionally the worst months for ‘yellow dust’ in Korea and, on this occasion, all the cars were coated with it.  If this is in the air, I don’t want to imagine how much of this stuff is getting into our lungs.Yellow Dust 2010

You can find out more about what ‘yellow dust’ is and it’s history in this Wikipedia Article.

“The Complete Teacher” Conference

I attended the KOTESOL Seoul Chapter conference last Saturday and I was really impressed by the big turnout of ‘native English teachers’ to this event.  There also was a lot of great content and the only negative was that they tried to squeeze so many good presentations into such a short time.  I missed a lot of presentations as, at any one moment, they were holding up to 5 separate presentations.

KOTESOL events are held throughout the country and, based on this event, I would recommend any teacher to check them out.  They are a great opportunity to learn some new teaching techniques and meet other likeminded teachers.

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.
