So, you need an apostille - but there's two problems.
First, you're not even sure what that word means. Apostille, not apostle. We aren't getting biblical here ;)
Second, you have little to no idea how to go and about getting said apostille. Well don't worry! This guide was made with you in mind.
Welcome to Part 3 of my comprehensive guide on how to become a teacher with English Program in Korea (EPIK). The following is a step by step guide aimed at explaining and streamlining the apostille process.
I've been putting off this post for about two years now, because let's face it - the EPIK application process is not exactly a sexy topic. It's lengthy, convoluted, and includes several new vocabulary words. However, when I was applying, it was blogs that I found most helpful. So, I'd like to pay it forward.
In reality, the process of applying to EPIK is pretty simple. It's the paperwork that comes after your acceptance that gets super complicated. But, let's not get ahead of ourselves. This guide is a comprehensive guide to your EPIK application process - starting with the necessary requirements, and ending with tips and tricks that will help you ace your interview.
Now that it's finally spring, I've been trying to get out of the house more and see some sights I didn't make it to last year. As some of you know, I'll be leaving Korea at the end of August this year, and I want to see as much as I can before that time.
I even have a Korean bucket-list, and this site - the Daehan Green Tea Plantation in Boseong - has been on the list for quite a while. All the pictures I had seen looked so lush and beautiful, and better yet they were rumored to serve amazing green tea ice cream.
Now, I'm not saying I spent four hours in transit so I could eat delicious ice cream, but I'm not not saying that either...
A few months ago I wrote about fall, my second favorite season in Korea, but now winter is over (thank God) and it is time to talk about spring!! Spring is, without question, my favorite season in Korea. I won't lie, Korean winters are pretty much the worst - think grey, with extra grey, and a side of dark grey. Also, extremely cold.
When I lived in Colorado I was also not a huge fan of winter (I'm just not a cold weather person), but at least in Colorado it is still sunny with blue skies most days, and when it snows it's really quite stunning. Korean winter just doesn't really have an upside...
This being said, Korean spring is amazing! The air is usually crisp but not cold, the sun is out more often than not, and my personal favorite, all the flowers start to bloom.
