Samara is an amazing city in the European part of Russia. It’s located on the shores of the beautiful Volga river. About 1,200,000 people live here. It’s a fast-growing city, specializing mainly in industrial production, aircraft and spacecraft industry, and agriculture. In 2018, Samara is going to welcome guests from all over the world for the FIFA World Cup. It’s a very dynamic city with lots of opportunities for both locals and international ESL teachers. Wonderful scenic nature, care of the old city part, and modern infrastructure make Samara a really interesting place to live.
I was very lucky to get an EPIK placement in Seogwipo, Jeju Island. If you are teaching English on the mainland, you should definitely make a point of checking out Jejudo. It is the top honeymoon destination in Asia, and is often compared to Hawaii (though in the winter that comparison falls pretty flat). Jeju Island has been named one of the new seven natural wonders of the world because of its many unique natural characteristics. Jejudo is the place to go for hiking, water sports, and scenery. It’s perfectly suited to anyone who loves the outdoors, and is an excellent getaway from the fast paced lifestyle of mainland Korea.
