Patungkol sa Pagtuturo ng English Sa South Korea

Kahit na nga na mas gusto (o ang tanging gusto) ng mga unibersidad dito sa South Korea ang mga native speakers upang magturo ng English ay may ilang mga Pinoy na English teachers na nataggap at dito ay nakapagturo. Kung ang pagbabatayan ay ang statisctics na noong 2013 ay nakalap ng Association of Filipino Professors in South Korea (AFEK), samahan ng mga gurong Filipino sa South Korea, ay mayroong higit kumulang na 100 na mga gurong Pinoy sa bahaging ito ng mundo.

Bukod sa English ay mayroon ding mangilan-ngilang mga Pinoy na nagtuturo ng “content subjects” dito. Ngunit ang karamihan sa amin ay English ang itinuturo, ang ilan ay sa mga unibersidad at ang iba’y sa mga elementarya at hayskul. Hindi ko pa nababalitaan kung may mga Pinoy ding nagtuturo sa mga tinatawag ditong hagwon (academy.)

Ayaw kong sabihing pinalad o maswerteng na-hire ang mga kababayan …

Teacher-Writer-Advocate for Self-improvement M, A, and D are the initials of my two first names (Massuline and Antonio) and my mother's family name (Dupaya). Ligaya (a Filipino word which means happiness in English) is my family name. MAD is actually one of my nicknames aside from Tony and Ching. My full name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question "Why do you write?" I don't write for material rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories, and essays, when I do research, the process of creating them gives me immense joy and seeing them completed brings me great satisfaction. I don't write for cash incentives, "likes," and "praises." I would be thankful should I get those but the happiness and sense of fulfillment I get while doing them and completing my works are my real rewards. Is teaching difficult? No! When I teach, I don't work but I play. My educational philosophy - "The classroom is my playground, the students are my playmates, and the subject is our toy." I am a lifelong learner too. My daily goal is to be better than I was yesterday. It's difficult, but it's worth the try. It's not for what I get from doing it but for what I become. Proud to be me! Proud to be a FILIPINO! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
