I am a recent university graduate from South Africa with a MA in psychology. I am looking for a way to further my education and give back to society in the same process. It is my opinion that a position as an English teacher in South Korea would provide me with such an opportunity.
Being able to interact with others is one of the reasons why I studied psychology and the main reason I would like to teach English in Korea. I have always been extremely social and any occupation that does not allow me to interact with others seems unworthy of my time. I love getting to know how different societies work and I am fascinated by how enriching learning about their experiences can be. I know a few people who have taught English in South Korea and they have great things to say about the country. I have a lot to learn from others and I hope that you will allow me to immerse myself within the culture and grow as a result. I would love to experience as much of South Korea as possible.
The fact that I am spending time with children is another reason why I am so attracted to becoming a teacher. I just adore the playfulness and innocence of a young mind. They make me happy and I believe they are the best cure for the sometimes overbearing seriousness of normal adult life. There is a sense that both the child and I would benefit from my employment. I would teach the kids English and they would also teach me how to play and laugh more with the world. While an education is important for everyone, I also believe that children that have the most to benefit and are the most fulfilling to teach. Since they are young, they have not lost their sense of wonder and excitement with new things. From a developmental perspective they are also in a stage of life that is the most susceptible to learning another language.
I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss my candidacy in further detail. As reception is typically poor in my area, the most successful way to reach me would be through email: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you for your time and consideration.
