is anticipated.

Interested parties are advised as follows:

During intensive terms, however, they are routinely scheduled for 24 
hours. The additional 4 hours per week are paid as overtime, at the 
rate of 18,000 won per hour.

3). All instructors, as per the contract, are guaranteed 5 weeks paid 
vacation. These weeks, however, correspond to periods between terms and 
are rarely longer than 3 week intervals. In sum, these intervals 
generally exceed the 5 weeks guaranteed in the contract.

comfortable-sized cottage shared between 2 foreign instructors. A 
housing allowance of 200,000 won per month is available subject to these 

 a). It may not be possible to provide housing for instructors 
with families, or they may opt not to take housing due to 
spousal obligations. In such cases, payment of the housing 
allowance is guaranteed.

 b). In the event that housing is not available at the start of 
the contract, instructors will be paid the housing allowance 
until such facilities are available. This rarely happens.

 c). Instructors without families who decline to accept campus 
housing are not paid the allowance.

5). At the end of each term, instructors receive a bonus, ranging 
between 0 and 200,000 won per month of the term, depending on their 
performance in the evaluation process.

6). The program assumes responsibility for 50% of the cost for the 
national health insurance program.
