  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
When it comes to education in South Korea, the demand is so strong it accounts for 12% of all consumer spending.
Parents push their children relentlessly, with classes in the evenings and at weekends. It's led to some teachers earning very high salaries, particularly to teach English. The BBC's Steve Evans, in Seoul, met one of them.

She enjoys every minute of her work...I can tell. So it almost ceases to be "work" for her. She's found what she absolutely loves to do and is getting paid heavily for it. In this global capitalist society, this is the peace that we all seek. Kudos to her; her life is one long vacation.

The problem is not the teacher not having perfect English, guys! The problem is BBC not grasping the fact that her students are not in her class to learn English! They are there to get entertained by her performance. She is earning a lot because she put an effort on sharpening her performance and having a good PR/marketing team.

Impressive. Even more so considering the amount of ESL material available free online.

This is what Jordan Peterson talked about in terms of "High Income Career Women". Most people would envy her for her high income but they would never want to trade their comfortable lives for this kind of crazy fast paced life.

She has a convincing American accent but she isn't very eloquent. That must mean her teaching skills are outstanding and she clearly is a hard worker. Good for her.

It's because she is Thin, looks good, and is in Korea. If not for those 3 things she would only make like 25K a year ;T
