The whole experience by far has been the best of my life and I can easily say that I feel well taken care of and happy here. I love my job and my students are the highlight of my days. The city is also amazing with a great blend of cultural traditional and modern sights and wonders to behold. And overall, the Koreans are delighted to have foreigners here. I have never met a group of people who are as open and friendly and welcoming as Koreans. And as a foreigner I feel very safe here too. Anyways, I can write email after email raving about my experiences here but I really just wanted to say thanks for your help and I know that I would not be here if it wasn't for you."
