South Korea offers you the opportunity to gain teaching experience and see the world while earning a competitive salary and enjoying rent-free housing. This is a great choice for someone getting ready for a teaching career, or someone who wants to work abroad while paying off student loans, for example. Placements are available in major urban areas throughout Korea, including greater Seoul!

CIEE places English teachers at two types of schools in South Korea: Public and Private.

Teachers at public schools work side-by-side with a Korean co-teacher most of the time, although they still have full responsibility for the class. They normally have 20-25 teaching hours each week, not counting prep time, meetings or free periods at their school. A typical contract offers 20-25 vacation days per year on a fixed schedule. Class sizes are usually 20-30 students.

Participants at private schools are lead teachers with full responsibility for their classes. They have a heavier workload: 30 classroom teaching hours each week, not counting prep time, meetings or other obligations like lunch supervision. A typical contract offers 10-15 vacation days per year on a fixed schedule. Class sizes are smaller than public schools, usually 8-15 students.

Placement fee: $1,950
