Korean teachers here to learn English teaching



For several years now, Korean children have been coming to the Philippines
to attend English camps. On board my flight from Seoul last week, I counted
about 100 Korean children all wearing blue T-shirts and with ID cards
hanging from their necks. One teacher was carrying all their passports. I
took photos while they were boarding. They looked like they were from
elementary school. Now it is the Korean teachers' turn to come and learn how
to teach English and use English for teaching. The first batch of Korean
teachers arrived Tuesday last week for a month-long training in English
teaching. Education and tourism officials call this "education tourism."
There is environmental tourism, medical tourism, rest/recreation/retirement
tourism and now you have education tourism.
