Temperatures are blazing here in Gwangju (consistently in the 100’s) and air-conditioned cafes have become a lifesaver these past few weeks – meaning more time to write! In this hot-take of ‘The Rat Tales’, I’ll take you inside the main middle school where I teach. Enjoy!
Seonun Middle School is relatively new – only about four years old – and is a hop, skip, and a jump away from my apartment. It’s where I spend the majority of my working hours (Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday) and my coworkers (most of who speak no English) have embraced this foreigner with open arms!
I recently cemented my legacy by performing Justin Bieber’s ‘Love Yourself’ (an immensely popular song here) in front of 500+ screaming students at a school festival. No biggie but I’m pretty famous ;).
Here’s a look inside!
Hope you enjoyed! Anything in particular you’re curious about here or would like to see? Feel free to drop me a comment below.
