    I am an experienced teacher having spent the last 8 years teaching Law A level to teenagers. However i want a change of lifestyle. For that and some other reasons i want to try TEFL again. In 1999 i taught for a private language school in a small town north of Bangkok and the students were a variety of adults and adolescents and the class sizes were small : around 3 to 5 at most. No issues with misbehaviour at all.

    My question is about misbehaviour and uncooperative students. From what i know of Thailand and what i’ve read about Korea and Japan there is little issue in these countries with TEFL students misbehaving because of their cultural attitude to education generally. Is this correct? as i was thinking of trying to find work in Korea. So any insight into the Korean students and attitude to TEFL classes is what i am looking for. And any tips too :) .

    Am i right that the kids in public schools are more likely to be uncooperative and misbehave than those that go to the private language schools ? if this IS an issue, the best way round this to do TEFL with adults in Korea?

    Unfortunately i have discovered that in Korea the fact i am 42 might go against me for working in private language schools, does anyone know if this is a universal rule or where there may be private language schools that want my experience ?

    Many thanks for any insight anyone can give :D
