Abstract/Description

In this study, I quantitatively and qualitatively analyzed the effects of Covid-19 on English education in South Korea. Taking to Twitter, I used a specific set of keywords and looked at the main topics that arose since Covid-19 occurred, gaining perspectives from teachers, students, and news sites to get a complete idea of how South Korea has handled the pandemic in regards to education. Pre-Covid, thousands of native speakers of English flocked to South Korea to teach. How have government policies in 2020-2021 changed from that of pre-Covid times? How has the change in policies changed the circumstances for foreigners living and teaching in South Korea? Additionally, what implications could this have for the future of teaching English as a foreigner in South Korea?
