Please be advised: We receive numerous complaints from new teachers each semester regarding the size of the apartments that the schools provide. Please understand that apartments in Korea are quite small (urban areas are extremely dense) and getting yourself mentally prepared for this transition is strongly advised. Homes and apartments in South Korea are measured in pyeong (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyeong
). One pyeong translates into roughly 35 square feet or 4 square meters. In most instances teachers will receive a single studio apartment that is around 9 pyeong, or 300 square feet; although apartment sizes do vary based on location. Larger cities such as Seoul, Busan, Daegu, etc. generally have smaller apartments while less populated areas usually have slightly larger apartments.
