If you are an English teacher right now, or were last year, or were in 1984, there's a survey I'd like you to do...
1. click on this link
2. put your e-mail address in the two boxes.
This step is necessary so that we know we're getting unique survey-takers, not the same ones again and again.
3. After you've entered your e-mail address, the survey website will send you an e-mail with a link, and then it will forget your e-mail address forever. Another person will get an e-mail saying "hey! another person did the survey!" and that will be it: your address will never be connected to your answers, and will not appear in any kind of database. Promise.
4. Once you get that link sent to your address, click on it, and fill out the survey.
It asks you questions about your experience teaching in Korea - answer the questions about your entire time teaching in Korea.
5. Tell your friends about the survey.
This survey is being conducted by ATEK (http://atek.or.kr/survey), but you don't have to be a member of ATEK to participate. You don't have to be a teacher right now to participate, you don't even need to be in Korea to participate: all you need is once, at some time in your life, to have been a teacher in Korea. We're hoping to get a large enough sample size that the statistics will carry some real weight as representative of the "average" teacher's experience in Korea.
If you had a bad experience, or a great experience in Korea, we'd like you to participate, so that the whole thing's balanced: so don't just do the survey if you've got a gripe; do it if you had a great time, too.
As you know, ATEK, the Association for Teachers of English in Korea, is an organization whose mission is to improve life for English teachers in Korea; ATEK is conducting this survey to better understand the situation of English teachers in Korea, so that we know what the major issues are that affect teachers, and how to better serve English teachers in Korea.
