this is such an obvious 'yes'. i mean, come on! for a teacher, ok, nobody cares if you speak korean or not, but if you want to do anything else, then of course it is a total advantage.
my korean is not particularly good, but i get by. often i thought 'i wish i spoke perfect korean' because i've been told so many times that i could do anything if i just learned more. really.. the only value you bring if you don't speak korean is that you are a native english speaker- you will be in demand to teach english, and correct people's documents, and so on- but virtually nothing else.Betty 19 May 2007, 05:03 - Report
