Sharing the lived experience of foreigners in modern Mongolia

    EP 06 - Sebastian from England

    EP 06 - Sebastian from England

    Sebastian has been teaching English in Mongolia for last three years. Besides Mongolia, he taught English in several Asian countries including Myanmar, which we discussed a bit about. Unlike the others, Sebastian has adapted to Mongolian weather much easily because he likes winter. Also I confessed about my procrastination of not uploading the episode on time in the beginning of the podcast.

    EP 05 - Tim from USA: Teaching English and Planting Seeds in Far West Mongolia

    EP 05 - Tim from USA: Teaching English and Planting Seeds in Far West Mongolia

    Tim decided to accept the job offer in Uvs after visiting and seeing the beautiful Khyargas (Хяргас) lake. It was not only the Mediterranean view of the lakes in the region that convinced him to stay. He's also befriended the local businessmen who are committed to giving back to their hometown and working together for the local community. Because of the environmental issues (desertification, deforestation) in Mongolia, Tim is enthusiastic about teaching horticultural skills to the kids. Tim shared that he likes living in Mongolia because he always seeks a place where he can grow. We also had some mouthwatering moments when Tim recommended his favorite Korean restaurants and the best desserts in Ulaanbaatar.
