    I am a Korean who wish to learn to be a Korean language teacher. I live in Sydney, Australia and want to know which is the best way to obtain the license to become the language teacher. Please send me some instruction.

    Dear Alicia,

    Please contact the Korean Cultural Office on Elizabeth Street in Sydney. They have connections with official Korean procedures towards accreditation. For an Australian one, you may have to get in touch with the local (NSW) education board of your state.

    Good luck!
