Things to bring

Korea has almost everything that you can find in the west although this is dependent on where you live. If you live in a rural area, western food and western items may be more difficult to find. Items that can be more difficult to purchase: deodorant, clothing, shoes in larger sizes. Mostly you will take over previous teacher’s housing so kitchen utensils and bed sheet/pillow etc are there (but if you want to buy new ones, they are cheap in Korea)


-Enough money to get you through to your first paycheck(about $1000 USD.).
- Clothing for four seasons (rain gear for monsoon season).

-English books ( they are imported so they are expensive)

-Family photos (make your housing homey)


-Swimming suit

- Korea uses 220V, which is incompatible with 110V electric devices and local plug- ins. You can also find the following in Korea with a bit of searching.
- Any particular brand you must use
- skincare products or contact lenses, etc
- Multi-vitamins (helps you adapt to new food system) and any prescription medication you must have
- Laptop computers
- Deodorant - (Deodorant is an expensive item in Korea.)
- Big/Larger size clothing

For men: shirts and ties, Jackets (Koreans tend to have shorter arms than western people, so finding shirts to fit may be a challenge)
For women: most items of clothing if you are larger than US size 8. If you wear a C cup bra or larger, they are difficult to find in Korea

- Big/Larger size shoes. If your foot size is US11 (US8 for women) or larger, it is highly recommended that you bring your own shoes.
