Teacher Training at the Women’s Center

I’ve been attending classes intermittently at the Women (Im)migrants Human Rights Center in Sungin-dong in Seoul since 2006. I haven’t been there since I started working last year but the Korean staff still call or send me messages from time to time whenever they have a special program.

The last time I was at the Women’s Center, I was training to teach Filipino culture to young Koreans and Korean language class for beginners. Too bad I was forced to work full time (I originally intended to work part time but my “wonjangnim” or school director talked me into accepting a full time job). I was cornered!

Anyway, I attended three or four sessions of the classes mentioned before I stopped. The teacher training for culture classes were only available to Filipinas, Vietnamese and Chinese; while intermediate students were invited to attend the teacher training for the Korean language class. As far as I know, there is no specific requirement with regards to educational attainment.

Last Thursday, I received a message from the Women’s Center inviting me to attend the training once again. The teacher training started last Friday at 10:30 AM. I might just visit the Center once again since I’d like to continue their free Korean classes. If you’re a Filipina married to a Korean and hoping to get a teaching job, it would be helpful if you can somehow speak Korean.

    I’ve started my Korean class in a women’s center here in Osan City. I’m really enjoying it. I’m so pumped up in learning Korean. Part of my goal this year. 🙂
