Working for EducaKorea

This is what I get to walk into every morning while working for EducaKorea. There's something pretty satisfying about being surrounded by books everyday. Especially when the books are reminiscent of my childhood. I'm currently working on a variety of projects including writing English assessment tests, creating compilation storybooks and workbooks that support the assessment tests, writing teacher guides for books like Maniac McGee and Island of the Blue Dolphin, and proof reading most anything that the company produces. I also get to do my first presentation to foreign teachers on Tuesday showing them how to use a textbook we sell.

The bookstore is also an amazing resource for English teachers in Seoul. I never knew small stores specific to children's English books even existed in Seoul before working here. They have English games, books, coordinating workbooks, puzzles, and English cartoons. I've used some of the storybook/workbook combos for private lessons which has been way great way to supplement my lessons.

The bookstore is open from 10-7 on weekdays and 10-4 on Saturday. It's located at Seolleung Station, exit 1. Walk straight out of the exit 1 for about 3 blocks until you see a Dunkin Donuts. At Dunkin Donuts take a right and walk two short blocks up the hill. You will see The Coffee Bean as in the picture above. The blue sign at the top of this picture is EducaKorea's sign. Take a right down the street just after The Coffee Bean.

On the right there is an entry way to the elevators. The bookstore is on the 5th floor.
