The BELTA blog has a new URL location




YOU can check out The BELTA blog at its new online location


It’s quite similar, the only difference is, if I’ve dropped the extension in the URL. THAT’S IT… nothing drastic 🙂

o, and now you can join a forum / community chat to inquire, discuss, and learn about the various aspects pertaining to living and teaching abroad right from people who have done just that.


See you over there! And tell a friend and a stranger too :)D


How to: Change your life in 2013

I felt my first post of the year on the first day of the year should be meaningful and have more content than just WISHING you happiness. I recently have found 3 tools that are helping me to shape the life I want to live and I felt it only appropriate that I share this with you. I challenge you to in 2013 be the best you that you have ever seen.

If you are seeing this, I thank you for visiting my space on the internet and for experiencing my life with me. I appreciate you and wish you more than happiness in 2013, I will you GROWTH, PROSPERITY and LOVE.


Sixth graders bust a move – great resource for South Korean culture

12  days away from boarding a plane and heading off to S.K., I’m starting to get back on my learning about South Korea kick. I fell off for about 2 weeks straight!  Of course I’ve been slacking on learning my phrases and words from but I haven’t wasted all of my time. I came across and absolutely love it. The creator, Keith who is from NYC and is documenting his life as a Korean-American living in Korea is funny, cool and I get his humor and appreciate his slang. I recently saw on one of his posts that he is running out of gas and is need of some “oomph” from his readers, subscribers, etc. Since I have no ends to donate to the cause, I thought I would do my part and show my appreciation by helping to plug his site. Many of the posts you have seen on BELTA have come from and I, like many of you are thankful for the information. FREE INFORMATION at that! Stuff like proper Korean table manners, dating in Korea, talking to strangers in Korea, appropriate body language between the opposite sex are just a few of what he offers in an entertaining way.

Visit for a slew of posts and VERY HELPFUL post full of info. for the curious mind.

Brilliant Student

A test a student took in Korea. However, if you ask me this is definitely worth some kind of A in my book.
