8 months for me too...if I decide to go home. I don't know yet. I miss home, but I have a job here and I have no idea what I'd do back home. I need some wise guru to tell me exactly what to do with my life.

2 months. I'm not sure if I made a mistake by leaving or not. I'll certainly miss it and as I get closer, I'm getting wistful.

I have my old job lined up and ready to go. I'm also planning on buying student housing and becoming a slumlord!

28 days! Beyond excited!

Coming here was definitely a mistake, missed out on a lot of opportunities back in the US, but.. you live and learn.

Totally gave up at work too. It's a great feeling

Came in with the Febrauary intake. I can feel the honeymoon phase ending now.

I'm no defender of Hagwons, but the above used to be a major issue.

The eleventh month firings were more often than not, justified, though revisionists tried to lay 100% of the blame with the Hagwons.

It's nice to see someone being honest, for a change.

I may well do the same when my time comes, if I live to see that day ;)

I have a week and a half left. Then it's back home and a visit to France to visit family and friends after which I'll be returning to the greatest country in the world (Korea :wink:) for the September in take.

My experience here has been two contrasting periods. First half was ruled by an overbearing CT who made life miserable and the exact opposite happened when the new school here started. By then my decision to leave was made though.

Looking forward to returning for round two in a couple of months!  ;D

8 teaching days left!!
After 7 years in Korea I've had enough. Going on vacation to Russia, Georgia and Turkey for 6 weeks and then off to start teaching at an international school in Guangdong province, China.
I'm so relieved/excited.
