This is sponsored by the Junggye Welfare Center. You may visit them (on Tuesday and Wednesday since the coordinator is attending a camp this week) at the 2nd Floor (사무실) of Junggye Welfare Center at Junggye4-dong, Jugong Apt Complex 3 in Nowon-gu. To get there, take subway line #4 (sky blue) to Sanggye station. Get out at exit 4 (cross the road) and take the green bus to 주공3단지. There are three buses that ply the route but only two will drop you off at the place. I forgot the bus numbers, so please check the info at the bus stop.


  1. wow~~ i want this but i’m on my lats month of
    pregnancy~huhu..what a missed opportunity….

  2. Really? Aba, magandang opportunity ito. Di kaya sa Seoul lang ‘to? Sana meron din dito sa lugar namin.

  3. hi ms. betchay!i’ve been to the center but the employees i’ve talked to aren’t aware of such training.may i know the person to contact?tanx.

    1. Hi Anne! I forgot the name of the person in charge but her table is located at the back part of the “samusil”. Remember it’s on the second floor of the Junggye Welfare Center (and not Jumin Center).

  4. Hi!I’ve been to 노원구 중계 4동 주민센터 kaso wala naman daw training for teachers…

    1. hi sam! did you go to the Jugong 3 Complex? It’s the welfare center that you should go to and not the Citizen Center. It’s the first stop after getting on the bus at Sanggye station. There’s an English announcement “Jugong 3 Complex”. When you get off, just go inside the apartment complex and you’ll the welfare center building at the far right, about 70 meters from the entrance of the complex.

  5. hello poh ask ko lang po kung meron pang free training sa mga gusto mkapagturo as teacher here. Thank you poh.

    1. Hi Amalia! Pag may nagbukas uli, I’ll post it here. I’ll ask ate Donnabelle kung may alam pa siyang program. She invited me yesterday to join the commercial shoot for KBS. Anyway, nasaan ka sa Korea?

  6. I attended the class last tuesday.. t’s more of a lecture… naka upo lang kmi the whole time.. ni wala kming activities na ginawa… wala man lang home work knowing na once a week lang ang lesson… yung teacher 40% of the class ay in korean… hopefully di masayang time namin.. may mga nag give up ng work nila para lang maka attend ng lesson nato… yung iba ang layo pa ng pinanggagalingan.. wish ko lang this tuesday maging exciting na ang klase..

    1. Hi Maria! I agree. She didn’t seem well-prepared or it could be that she’s just nervous. The class was too teacher-oriented, as opposed to what one would experience in a TESOL class. I like her materials though. I haven’t thought really young learners so I enjoyed learning about the methods on teaching young kids.

  7. hello miss betchay, Bago po ako sa pag read ng blogs nyo and i found it so interesting and talagang ma uupdate ka sa mga latest happenings here in korea..keep up the good work po..GOdbless
