The superintendent at the Jeollanamdo Provincial Office of Education has decided to create a special project, introducing more native English teacher positions into their rural, Sinan island public schools. Classically Korea, they would like teachers there "ASAP" and it's very likely that you'll head right to the islands and your school without a group orientation. We know these positions aren't for everyone, but have had success placing interested teachers on Sinan county islands before and will do our best to prepare you! You will likely be the only foreigner on your island and will only be connected to mainland Korea by ferry. Like we said, these spots aren't for everyone! If you're still reading, here are the details that most people want to know, comment with any additional questions and we're happy to answer.

Is it still male teachers only due to the sexual assault of a contract Korean teacher?

Sinan is great for camping!

I have fond memories from two trips there back in the summers of '06 and '09.

I would consider it in 2020.

You should change the topic to:

Enjoy fresh air, 21st century abuse and slavery and the occasional rape condoned by the friendly and welcoming islanders in wonderfully quaint, traditional surroundings.


I remember a Kor. friend of mine saying they're all driving an Equus on those islands and that you shouldn't go there as a foreigner. And Brian had posted once a post about a man who had entered a female teacher's apartment, beaten her and she screamed and screamed but none of the ajummas came to help, when she asked for medical treatment, the doctor refused so she had to go to a large hospital. The school screwed her out of her ticket fare as well when she, understandably, decided to go back home to the States.
