Deskwarming duty was one of the annoying things that were coming in when I was leaving. It used to be that you could take holidays when the students weren't there, but they started requiring foreign teachers to come in and do nothing on these days just to be assholes about it. I wouldn't recommend Korea as an EFL destination unless you are a tall blond female with big tits now. Even in the unlikely event you get the job, it sucks.
Their fitness room is appalling. You cannot shake the fat out of your buttocks or stomach. My god I would become a millionaire if I went to East Asia and promoted fitness as preventative health measures. Weight lifting, crossfit, martial arts, dance, etc. etc. Wow maybe this should be my goal.
LOL, good idea Lone Y. East Asians are obsessed with the idea of being "fit." You'll hardly see any overweight people in Korea.
Introducing American music though sounds a lot like Americanization and indoctrination.
As for being fit they also have to learn to eat organic and whole foods. Luckily many tradtiional East Asian and Korean foods are "organic" and fairly healthy. But they also need to learn that most foods that taste very good or are salty or very sweet are not good for you unless they are unprocessed.
Unfortunately you need a lot of land to yield only a medium amount of whole/organic foods, and that is the human issue of overpopulation because we cannot sustain the global population on whole foods alone. So either people continue eating artificial crap and keep getting sicker or we decrease the world population.
the chances are, it's an international school. typical schools in korea or east asia for that matter looks nothing like that i know for sure.
those kids who go to that school are lucky though. they probably don't have to deal with as much bullshit as they normally would if they go to a typical korean middle school.
Yes, they are slowly being phased out of public schools. There will still be jobs at hagwons and universities though.
