VLOG | My non-ESL experience in Korea!

Hey everyone!

I just wrote my introduction on the forum:
http://www.waygook.org/index.php/topic,108127.0.html

For ease of reference, some copy and paste:

I'm Stefan and I will arrive in Korea on the 23rd of August. I experienced Seoul in three separate holidays over the past year and it got me to my current plan to move to Seoul.

I'm not an English teacher as you probably know since I'm not a native English speaker, but this forum is by far the most active 'foreigners in Korea' forum, so I thought I would join  :smiley:

I'm a business engineer and change manager and after an initial program in the Korean language at Seoul National University, I will look to get into corporate-Korea.

I'm vlogging the whole experience and some of you may find it interesting to watch/follow. Like I said, first half year I'll be a student but parallel I will be building my network to land that non-ESL job. I know a lot of you aren't looking to be a teacher forever so you may learn something from my experience!

The first two videos, which are more introduction-airy, are up on youtube. I will start a forum in the appropriate section of this forum where I will post updates on my vlog or you can subscribe on youtube  ;D

Link to the second video (sure you will be able to find the first through the channel)  8)

I'm super excited to start this whole experience and record it for those who are interested. I will keep you all informed on new uploads, which should come at least ones a week  :smiley:

See you soon!
Stefan

Hey Everyone!

Video number three is up :) In this video I will touch the topic of homesickness and how I believe adopting a certain mindset can help you with it. I also talk about the things I will miss.

Getting more comfortable behind the camera and starting to experiment with different camera angles. Having more and more fun with this and I believe it shows in the quality of the content!

Let me know what you think!

Life is crazy when you prepare to move abroad! Haven't had as much time as I wanted to record and edit, but better late than never :)

Fourth video on my vlog, enjoy :)

After 10 months I'm finally in Korea! Now that I have much more time to record and edit videos, here is the fifth, bringing you an update and a preview of what's coming. All while I walk around Seonjeongneung, UNESCO world heritage in Gangnam-Gu.

I was super excited for this road trip to Andong! Before university kicks off on the 4th of September, we take a rental for a drive through the country, what a beautiful country Korea is!

The second part of my vlog on a road trip to Andong is online! We slept over at a 500 year old traditional Korean house and got poured traditional tea in a folk village by a lady wearing traditional Korean clothing (Hanbok).

We were invited to a very special traditional Korean wedding. It is so vastly different than what I was used to! What a special way to get married! I also give you an update on learning Korean at Seoul National University as a 서울대학교 학생.

Since I have shared my plans back home to move to Korea the single most asked question is about safety and the developing tensions between North-Korea and the rest of the world. In this vlog I give you my perspective on the topic and share with you my plan to figure out what the public opinion on the matter is.

It is nonsense what I've been doing till now on my Youtube Channel, I fooled myself, it had no purpose. Glad to have found that out, a new direction is set and excited to deliver a different kind of content.
