Our online or in-class, in-country TESOL course

You can now also enrol for our January 21st 2019 in-class, in-country TESOL course done in Seoul, South Korea. This offers you an exceptional opportunity to ease into life in Korea before starting teaching. The course will include an in-depth 1 week cultural orientation packed with activities plus 120 hours of class time where you will be taught and certified to Teach English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). The course is tailored specially to teaching in South Korea and holders of in-class certificates like this are more sought after by employers than those with online certificates.

We also offer an online TESOL course for anyone not able to take part in the in-class one. This happens once a month and is tailored to teaching in South Korea.
