Supporting Information
Why do you want to teach overseas?: 
There are many reasons why I'd like to live and teach in South Korea for a year but the most prominent one is for the experience. I know everything will be so different and it will be a lot of hard work but I'm very hardworking and I know the experience would be one I couldn't forget! The thought of going to South Korea seems so exciting to me and without this opportunity it would be so much harder for me to visit your beautiful country. I also want to travel there because I have been interested in teaching as a job for after I graduate and I'd imagine teaching children would be a very rewarding experience. Since a young age I have always wanted to travel, especially to Asia because I'm very interested in the culture of Asian countries. I watch quite a lot of media from Asia and South Korea, especially Korean dramas and music. I also watch a lot of online Vloggers that have travelled to South Korea and documented their experiences so I know what to expect. I hope that you can give me this amazing opportunity Thank you
Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?: 
I believe that I'm suitable for the role because of my passion and hard working spirit! I really like South Korean culture so it would be a dream for me to be able to live and work in your country. I enjoy being around children and have always been interested in teaching as it seems so rewarding. I don't have any prior teaching experience but i'm very mature for my age so I know I could do well. I am a British citizen but my parents live in Spain and I have been living in England independently since I was eighteen so I'm used to organising myself and sorting things out.
