    Hi, I came across your blog recently and I’ve been enjoying hearing about what it’s like teaching in Korea – it seems there are a lot of similarities with what it’s like here in Thailand!

    Anyway, the reason I’m commenting is I have started a new weekly feature on my blog called Mixed up Mixtapes where each week I choose a theme (based around life living and working abroad) and I pick 5 songs that sum up that theme for me, sharing them in a blog post.

    Basically I’m reaching out to other bloggers out there and inviting them to make their own Mixed up Mixtape post based on the theme. This week’s theme is homesickness…

    If you are interested, feel free to make a post and just put a link back to my post somewhere and use the tag: mixed up mixtapes. I will be sharing other people’s contributions so you will likely get some extra visits from the followers of my blog 🙂

    Thanks! Kylie

    P.S. I commented here so I didn’t randomly comment an unrelated comment on a post…

    thanks for reading! I actually want to teach in Thailand after I finish teaching here in Korea.

    That seems really cool. I’ll try my best to find some songs for your theme

    ^^

    Hi! I saw your blog when I just randomly googled “being Asian-American in Korea.” I have a friend who faces similar things as you, except he’s an Taiwanese-American English teacher in Japan.

    By the way, we have a few things in common! My family moved to SF from Thailand when I was a kid and I’ve been here ever since. I also have a weird “farang” accent when I go back to Thailand. I also get treated the same as you. It’s a mix of “you’re not even practicing Thai, your own language?” and “wow! You’re so American now!” and “oh but you’re not a REAL farang, so act more Thai.” They don’t really understand the concept of being both Asian and American. I also don’t have a get-out-of-jail free card if I mess up in Thailand like non-Asian Americans.

    Anyway, I’m sort of undecided about teaching English in Asian countries I’ve never been to, mostly because of how I would be treated. I also have a lot of questions to ask. I’ve heard stories from white foreigners, but some parts of the experience are totally different if you’re white. I’m thinking of teaching in Japan, South Korea, or Thailand. Are you with a program that’s from the U.S.? Can you tell me about your experience?

    It’d be so cool if you could answer some of my questions! How can I contact you? Thanks!

      HI!

      I’ve been meaning to do a part 2 on my “being Asain-American in Korea” blog.

      I absolutely love teaching here in Korea. I highly recommend it if its something that your interested in doing. Feel free to ask me anything! I’ll try to answer your questions to the best of my ability. ^^ I am with a program, it’s call EPIK. I can go on for days talking about my experience the past 2 years here in Korea.

      Any questions you have you can post it right here 555.

      Hope to hear from you soon!
