It is standard for foreign teachers to be provided with an apartment by their employers as part of their one year contract. Typically, you will be given a studio (one room) or a one bedroom apartment, chosen by your employer. The rent will be paid for as a part of your contract, but you will be are responsible to pay for your utilities (see the section “Utilities” under “Deductions” for more details). Your apartment will come furnished with basic appliances like a fridge, stove, bed, and maybe a TV or couch. Depending on your employer, your provisions may extend even further to things like a desk, shelving, microwave, rice cooker, dishes and cutlery. In most cases you will be replacing the previous English teacher who has left behind some other furnishings.
