A couple of months ago, I made it one of my goals to become more informed. Before I started my teaching job, I was finding the goal rather difficult to ascertain. I just didn't have the interest nor the stamina to look at online newspapers everyday. Now, however, I find myself browsing exciting headlines, looking for new and interesting topics to discuss during conversation lessons. It's a goal of mine to find something news-worthy that a student might not be aware of.
One of the websites I've been going to is The Korea Herald, since this gives me up-to-date information from within my students' spheres of influence. The website, offering articles in both English and Korean, is comprehensive and well laid out.
Although I have been only doing this regularly for a week or two, I am still embarrassed when I find things out that the nation has known for 5 months or so (take our Canadian astronaut in space, for example). I am excited to see how continued practice will keep me 'in the know' and newsy.
