[ News, Opinion, December 26 2007] Returning Canadian ESL teachers build online network to promote Korea

By Park Young-guk, Korean Public Relations Officer in Canada

An impressive number of Canadians work in Korea, mainly as English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers. About 3,000 Canadians go to Korea every year and typically spend from one to five years teaching English in Korea.

When they come back to Canada, they naturally talk about their experiences to their family and friends and thanks to such Canadians, many here are saying that they feel familiar with Korea.
Canadians who I have run into say they are especially interested in Korea's advanced IT (Information Technology) products and pop culture.
