  2. Hi,
    I was just doing some research and I stumbled upon your blog. I have applied to be an ESL teacher and I have just passed my interview for Masong High School in Tongjin! I have to confirm my offer but I wanted to know more about the area. Is there anything you can tell me about the Tongjin area? Do you know about my school? Is there a reliable internet connection?

    Thanks so much!

    • Hi Amba, we know the person you are replacing. Tongjin is roughly 1-1.5 hours away from Seoul depending on traffic. It is a smaller community with really only one main street. It has everything you need in terms of grocery stores and whatnot. There is a large walmart style store (homeplus) 30-40min away and a Costco, movie theater, etc. Tongjin has a very tiny expat community but we would be happy to show you around. The internet is great! Very fast and reliable. We pay about 35$ a month for unlimited internet which is a steal if you are from Canada like we are.

      If you have any questions ask away.

      Austin
