Foreign Teachers

Korean Government in 1995
decided to move forward
with English fluency as
they rebuilt their country
to a grand economy
after forty years’ slavery
under their militaristic
aggressive neighbour
then the maelstrom of
a border war.

Korea would learn to increase
imports and exports, develop
and produce goods sought
by countries who would pay
well. she would keep pace
with the English speaking
country which helped her
stand against her enemy
siblings at the north end
of her peninsula.

Korean government in 1995
set up recruitment of
native English speakers
to teach in state schools
and cram schools. No teacher
training, simply follow the
workbooks Korean style;
east and western cultures
met in a grand slam !

These foreign teachers expect
eight hours work day, take
sick leave and summer holidays,
argue with senior staff !

Why would they do that ?

Foreign teachers are
very hard to understand.
