Hello Jason, I have been considering teaching in another country for a few years. Your site is the first one that I find to be truly professional and an organization that I would be willing to engage with. Thank you so much for your time.
Jason- I really appreciate the time you spent to write a long and personal email to me. I laughed at your comments. You covered all bases and really changed my feelings about South Korea. Thank you so much for all your help, I can't tell you how impressed I am with your company. Regards, Rosey S.
Jason, I was a little nervous going to Korea all by myself. I was very worried about this and it was a huge relief the way everything worked so smoothly. I am very happy to be here and to have gone through your website. You have been there since the very beginning! Thank you for all your help, Melissa B
Hey there, I really appreciate you all staying in touch...the others from 'Company X' growl at us when we say our recruiter follows up. Ha. I dig my classes and students, and am enjoying the dubu kimchi in almost unreasonable amounts. So, yeah, I guess I can thank you all for that. Alright, thanks again. Have a good weekend~ Sarah S
Stacey, Thank you, you guys have been great in getting all of this together for me. You are a wonderful organization. I will keep you posted as I make the move. Art C
Thank you for the response Jason, it is nice to have someone else keeping me on track. I can definitely see why Evelyn raved so much about you and your company. I watched your longer presentation last night and would like to thank you for taking the time to put together these resources, especially for first time ESL teachers. Emma
Hello Jason and Matthew, I enjoyed listening to your 50 min. audio. I also feel that your web site is very helpful and one of the best ones out there. I have filled and sent an application and hope to start teaching soon! Thank You for being in business! Ji Kim
Hello Vivianne & Jason Oh I am delighted! The guidebook is brilliant - really interesting & just what I need to make everything seem real. Thank you both for all the additional information you have sent, its very helpful & I think it's a good idea to get my head round processes such as banking before i arrive in order to help me settle in quicker. Thank you again, Fionnuala H
To whom it may concern: First, I would like to say Bravo for your very informative and frank website about teaching in Korea. The information that you provided was helpful and insightful, not to mention quite amusing. Sincerely, Elizabeth W.
Hi Jason: I finally had a chance to sit down and listen to the complete audio presentation by ASK Now and would like to provide you with some positive feedback. By nature I am a planner and researcher. I like to look into many aspects of a decision or situation before embarking, including speaking to those who have been there or are currently there. My overall goal is to get a sense of what a situation would be like and whether it would be suited for me BEFORE I leave. I would like to commend you on taking the time to prepare and broadcast the 50 minute audio forum on teaching in Korea. Any questions or uncertainties I had regarding teaching overseas were answered and I have to admit that I am more enthusiastic and excited about teaching in Korea than ever before! Sometimes I think it is good that I am taking the time now to learn all this and get excited. So thank you again for taking the time to answer those questions I didn't even know I wanted to ask, and for providing such incredible resources. It is evident that your passion for teaching, for Korea and for your company extends well beyond the business realm - and it is encouraging and welcomed! Emma
Hi Vivianne! I want to take the time to let you know what a pleasure it was to speak with you this evening. Patrick and I both really appreciate how open and friendly you were during our conversation, as well as how interested you were in us and our questions! I was impressed with the amount of information and the obvious effort that your website contains, which is why we applied. Again, we have been really impressed by the level of information, support, and courtesy you and your company have shown us, so we definitely want you to represent us from here on out. Thanks again, Misty
Hey Jason, I just wanted to thank you for all the time and effort that you and your company have taken to help out your potential customers. I appreciate that you have been taking the time to speak with us Jason. I really appreciate the fact that you took the time to get to know us first. So, it boils down to the fact that we are impressed and at ease with our dealings with ASK Now, and somewhat hesitant about this other company. Jason, I can't let you know how thankful I am for all the work that you are doing for Misty and I already, and if we should go ahead and accept this position, we will definitely spread the word about how easy it has been working with you. Thanks again, Patrick
Hi there Jason, I have just been checking out the ASK Now website and blogs. It is an excellent site-I loved the videos and the multimedia approach! I am one of those people described in your audio piece as a change in circumstance/change in life person. I have checked out some New Zealand sites and to be honest I have found your site to be the most helpful about teaching English in South Korea. All the best, Tamara D'A.
Jason, I never got a chance to thank you all for your help in getting me to South Korea. I have made a lifetime of friends already and it's only been two months. The Korean teachers are so helpful and friendly, we make a great team. I have been sending weekly emails home and all of my friends are jealous and want to teach overseas as well. I am recommending that they visit your site as you have so much great information. I have made some travel buddies and we try to visit one new place every weekend. Anyhow, just wanted to let you know that your site was really helpful in my decision making process and I have no regrets. I especially enjoyed your extra emails about life in Korea or places to visit. Another American teacher came two weeks after I did and I was teaching him about things that he wasn't aware of that I had learned from your website. Sincerely, Sarah S.
Hello there! I just spent about an hour or so reading through the ASK Now website and your very well written 'Nine Things you Need to Know Before you Teach in South Korea' article. I must say I am very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the article. I have printed it out and I am going to share it with my family and some friends this evening so they can feel a bit more comfortable about my pending decision to teach in Korea. I got the distinct impression that because of your passion for teaching in Korea you might take some time to answer a few of my questions. The enthusiasm inherent in your writing and presentations was truly inspiring. I learned more from your website, articles and audio-visual presentations in the past half hour than I have learned from any other source thus far. Thanks for your help. Sincerely, Evelyn D
Hi Jason, Well, we have been here for 5 weeks and we are really enjoying ourselves. I would like to express my gratitude for all of your help. You have set us up with great employers. They are American so communicating is not difficult and their mentality is Western as well. You asked if we had any stories, well Steve, Jesse and I have lots to tell but I can sum it up in one word - Soju. We have had lots of fun drinking soju since we have been here. One of our highlights was drinking soju and going to the Norae Bang (singing room) That is a funny place. Another highlight was hiking up a mountain that is about two minutes away from my apartment and stumbling across these beautiful Buddhist sculptures. It was amazing and very unexpected. Well I will close for now. Thanks once again.
Hi Stacey, Things are going really well for us here in Seoul. Our school is really great. Good working hours, good pay, REALLY nice and approachable staff. Most importantly, our good friends will be joining us to teach at the same school as us in a week. We've seen many great spots in Seoul and we're not even sure if one year is long enough to see EVERYTHING. We've seen the Seoul tower, the Hanok Folk Village, the teahouse in Insadong, the arts and cultural district in Insadong and the USO in Itaewon. The other night we went to a beautiful bath house in Chang dong. At the moment we are redecorating our apartment. I found some great fabric at the Cloth Market in Dongdaemoon. We're making quite a few Canadian friends out here. There are constantly new teachers arriving and teachers leaving. Ok, that's all for now. Thanks for making this happen for us.
Dear Jason, Of all the companies that we spoke with before choosing, ASK Now was the easiest to work with and, now that we are here and can compare our situation with other foreigners that we have met, we are all glad that we went with your company. Steve, Shannon and I have been into Seoul a number of times now and enjoyed ourselves each one of them. The shopping centers, many containing a slightly out of place looking Buddhist temple or pagoda, have everything that we could want while we are here; and the Seoul nightlife too has a great variety to keep us entertained on weekends. (And, as an aside, we have all learned the hard way the mantra of the Westerner in Korea: 'Beware of the Soju!') Take care and - cheers from Korea!
