Teaching for free II

A few weeks ago I posted about a volunteer teaching job that I started at the local 'dong' office (read more here). Unexpected turn of events: the office decided to start paying me a 'transportation fee' as they do with all the teachers that do work there. It turns out that this fee works out to 15,000 won per hour!! That's more than my own college gives me for teaching overtime classes and only 5,000 less than they pay for 'continuing education' classes. Go figure.

The class is going great. There are about 25 or so housewives who have stuck it out so far and they seem to be enjoying the class.
