Thoughts of a relentless mind

Life in South Korea

I have been in South Korea for quite some time now. Have visited few places and am getting more and more comfortable with the people and the surroundings.

One thing is for sure: South Korea is not such an easy place to live compared to other countries. This uneasy feeling comes because as an outsider you find hard to interact with people. Most of the localites here do not speak English. Even few of them who do speak English cannot put across their opinion and take annoyingly long time to understand what we say. The main reason for this might be because of the fact that the people here give huge importance to their native language.

I have been told by my colleagues here that the situation is fast improving. Children here are being taught English from a very young age. And since Korea does not have many good English speaking people, schools are getting teachers from other countries to teach English here. No wonder I get to see people from many nations here.
