Young native English speaking teachers’ identity transition in Korean Schools
My research project focused on the native English speaking student-teachers in Korean governmental training programme and in the actual language teaching practice. I strongly believe that all novice teachers undergo development as a teacher. With some interventions such as participation in governmental training programme and exposure to real teaching circumstance, the process of development as a teacher and identity transition process could be accelerated and vice versa. I focused on the participants’ point of view and their experiences in Korean context. The purpose of this project was to highlight the novice student-teachers’ identity development as English teachers in Korea and as one of the members of Korean society.
