South Korea is one of the most popular places to teach English as a foreign language. With four years of teaching English under her belt, Avagail will provide insight on what it’s like to live, teach, and travel in The Land of the Morning Calm (South Korea).

She will touch on topics like:

  • What you need to become an ESL/EFL teacher in South Korea
  • How to apply or find a teaching job
  • What it’s like to be a Native English Teacher

And for those of you that are not interested in becoming a teacher, come learn about:

  • Traveling within South Korea
  • Events not-to-miss in South Korea
  • Unique things in the Korean culture

AVAGAIL LOZANO is a former corporate housing industry professional turned ESL teacher. She found her love of traveling after doing a one-month volunteer trip in Australia in 2008. Having a quarter-life crisis at age 25, she quit her job and went to Italy to live with a host family and be an English Language Tutor for three months in 2013. There, she fell in love with teaching children English. Returning to the corporate world for a few more years, she decided it was not for her, she got her ESL certificate and went to South Korea in 2016.

What was supposed to be one year of teaching there turned into four years. In March 2020, she returned to visit her family between a move to Germany but got stuck here because of COVID. She is currently using this time to build her blog and own travel community. As a Filipina-American she is on a mission to share as many BIPOC (Black, Indigenous People of Color), WOC (Women of Color), and Filipinx-American travel tales as possible!
