hat does an EPIK Teacher do?
EPIK (English Program in Korea) is a governmentinitiative working towards placing a native Englishspeaker in every public school in Korea.An EPIK teacher serves the community as an Englishinstructor and a representative of his or her homecountry. It’s common to be greeted warmly anywhere inyour host town and a great deal of interest is taken in the few foreign-ers working here. TV stations andnewspapers seek us out at themany festivals and seasonaloccasions in the Korean calendar.Most EPIK teachers have a homeschool and one or more satellite schools. The homeschool, typically a middle school, is where most of yourworking week is spent, while on other days you will visityour smaller schools. Sometimes these satellite schoolsare elementary or high schools.The normal work day is Monday to Friday, from 9am to5pm, with a maximum of 22 lessons a week.At the end of the school semesters most schoolsprovide a vacation camp for students or additionalconversation classes.
