Middle School TESOL / Peace Corps / K-25

My passport picture to Korea

I arrived in Seoul,Korea, on November 27, 1972 on a flight from Seattle. The plane was full of Peace Corps Volunteer candidates. We bussed immediately to the capital city of Kang Wan Province, to a city called Choon Chun. Thirty two of us spent about 2 months at the King Sejung Hotel, learning the Korean language and culture and learning how to teach English As a Second Language. The group was great, the time was fun.

The group was great, the time was fun. Here's a picture of the fun:

Koreans like to sing alot.
Here are recordings I made in 1973
of a folk song (Arirang), a pop song (Peega Onun Dea) and a political song (Sae Mal Undong).
