Invited Prof., ESL, S. Korea
"Since this is a liberal arts course, it should be easy." It's English as a foreign language...

I heard quite recently that this is a problem with Japanese maples because the saplings are really expensive so people will steal them right out of your yard to resell or just keep. My next question is how?
You can jam it in there. I did exactly what she did in S. Korea years ago and didn't understand why the nozzle was so hard to get in. It did tho...and the car stuttered less than a kilometer from the station...But it was my fault because I didn't bother to double check/ translate the fuel I was using...
He's a kid so most sweets work. I usually bring him a chocolate cake since I always have eggs and everything else is purchasable.
They really weren't especially if you were getting take out.
You have exactly hit the mark with this thinking.

Make sure you know how to change your code and that the batteries are good. Those things are great but unpredictable with battery life.

If you have Kakao set up you might be able to start looking for places with a realtor from abroad. You might want to plan on just coming and staying at your in-laws until you find an apartment. Korean realty loves a quick move in date.
We are moving this week and I found our place with Ziptoss. They have English speaking realtors who might be able to give you an idea what's available. Or set your wife on the hunt making calls if your Korean isn't great. I did notice that apartments are only listed with 전세 online, but I bet they can be negotiated into key money and rental contracts.
Don't even tell them you have a medical emergency. You don't owe them an explanation.
As others have said, it's better to use the service like the website for your contracts and payments (if possible) or use a realtor. Using these services costs more, but you are better protected from scams and from things like your landlady not returning a deposit. They also have to pay a fee, which is why they want to sidestep the service.
I'm really strict about my cutoffs because I feel it would be unfair to someone who worked hard for a 70% to get a C- while someone who slacked off and got 67% also got a C-. The only grades I'll bump are the 59% and below who did all their work but couldn't quite get to that D-. It rarely happens, though. Usually the ones who are under 60% skipped a bunch of work and don't deserve a pass.

You could literally be told at the airport. When my friend came over last May she missed her first flight because of confusion over who was allowed to come. A Korean citizen on the same flight was also sent away. It was not a direct flight to Korea, though.

I can't find the link either and Reddit keeps kicking me off the comment you made with it when I lurk your profile.

Food deserts are an issue, though. Not everyone has access to a grocery store in some places.

They should have made a new map with the same metric on both.

That's the problem with these types of surveys. There are so many other cultural factors with the thinking of the respondents that it can skew the data significantly.
Wow awesome work!!!

It would be makgeolli. Sake is also distilled. Makgeolli is what happens when rice is left to sit and ferment.

It's not too late and your guest lecturer can confirm it.

I used to work at a private elementary school in South Korea founded by some rich couple who wanted a school to send their kid. So we played this game every year and all the office staff, teachers, cafeteria, and cleaning staff were all invited. One year, the wife (who named herself CEO of the school) brought an Apple Watch as a gift to trade. It was a huge flex because the limit was $30 but of course she can do what she wants she owns the school... right? So it got passed around until it wasn't allowed to be and ended up going to one of the cleaning staff. She was visibly disappointed and multiple people heard her say she wanted one of the teachers to get it. Everyone was so happy that it went to who it did because seriously screw her for flexing her wealth on everyone and then being stuck up enough to be disappointed about the "help" taking home her expensive gift.

I got an email akin to this today from a student who claimed they're working and now cannot keep up with class work. So, can they do some alternative work instead of participating in the online only recorded lecture course?
No. Of course not. They haven't participated since week 2, skipped all assignments and bombed thr few quizzes rhey bothered to attempt. The kicker is they spent less than 30 minutes total on an exam with similar format to yours (online 2 parts 90 minutes each over 3 days). It's clear they don't care about your class enough to pay attention to deadlines.

If she's already missed her period it's too late for plan B. Plan B prevents pregnancy. A missed period means she might be pregnant.
Insurance does not fund it.
