Apply-to-Teach-Teaching-English-in-South-Korea-300x212It’s been two years since I arrived in Jeju to teach English in South Korea. Some of my fondest memories took place during that year, and I’m a huge proponent of people exploring this option for themselves. As such, I’ve teamed up with a Korean recruiter to help potential teachers find jobs in South Korea. Current job openings are listed at the bottom of this page. Make sure to mention any that seem particularly interesting to you when you fill out your application.

Life in a foreign country may seem a bit daunting at first, but trust me, this is a worthwhile experience for both well-experienced and novice travelers. It also offers a particularly great opportunity for those fresh out of university who would love to travel but need to repay student loans or those who are keen to build their savings quickly. Specifically, the typical English teacher employment package across South Korea will include the following:

  • Average monthly salary of $2,000-$2,500 USD
  • Free flight to and from South Korea
  • Fully furnished housing
  • Medical insurance
  • Visa costs covered
  • Severance pay (one month salary bonus upon 12-month contract completion)
  • Pension
  • Paid vacation days

Those are the basic perks for any job, but your specific employer will be able to detail any and all other bonuses during your interview. For now, let’s keep it simple and stick to the application process. Enter your details into the form below and a recruiter will get in contact with you directly to discuss your options and answer any further questions.
