Chungnam Province

Chungnam is located just south of Gyeonngo-do in western Korea. It is a beautiful region with plenty to offer nature lovers, while standing as an important transportation hub with the crossing of major rail lines and highways here that connect the north, south, and center of the country. Seosan is a relatively small city, but there is plenty to see and do here. One will find a peaceful lifestyle here, but at the same time you will never be too far from the hustle and bustle of Korea's major cities.

There is plenty of history in this region, plus mountains, beaches, and national parks to experience. Teaching in a public  elementary or middle school here will be highly rewarding,  and the light workload means that you will have plenty of time away from school to explore the area, and the rest of the country as well.
