Isabel's Journey to South Korea

Current Location

Cheongju, South Korea

Hello everyone! Please join me on my journey as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant at an all girls' Middle School in Cheongju, South Korea! I can't wait to explore with you.


This past week I traveled to many different places in South Korea, so I saw different things than I usually do during my week. I went to Seoul, Nami Island, Incheon Airport, and back home to Cheongju.


This is the end of our journey together, everyone! I'm sad that it's coming to an end. I've had a lot of fun writing to you all. Did you notice the ㅜㅜ above? That's an "u" sound in Korean.

Field Notes

Happy Lunar New Year, everyone! This week I'll be telling you about my first experience with the Korean Lunar New Year celebration, called Seollal. Seollal is written as 설날 in Korean.


Sports Day is an annual event in Korean middle and high schools. It's similar to field day in U.S. elementary schools, but the students are much more competitive. Enjoy this peek into Sports Day!
