More Questions: More about how to start, best places to pick, etc

How to become to TEFL teacher in South Korea
I noticed you're teaching English in S. Korea. I'm interested in teaching abroad. I tried it once in S. America but the company wanted me to pay them a large initial fee and I thought it might be a scam. What company do you teach through and what qualifications are necessary to teach?
Are you enjoying your time there? I'll have to check out your blog to find out I guess. ;)
Thanks in advance for the insights.

Curious about South Korea

2010 VDAY

This was hands down the best Vday I've had...

Handsomely dressed, he showed up at my door with roses and chocolate. I had no idea anything was even going on, I was still in my jammies, looking like a complete bum. And I had bought nothing for him. In Korea girls give the gift on V-day and boys reciprocate a month later (March 14th - white day). I fail miserably at assimilation apparently.

Ask Karamel - Now Answering Questions too

I probably should create another blog for this, but that's a little presumptuous to believe I will suddenly be inundated with unbelievable amounts. I am flattered that I even got one, question that is. I thought the answer may be helpful to someone who came across my blog (For personal reasons on why I chose Korea, read here ). Anyways this questions are more specific to the process of how to begin.
