AMS Korea are an incredibly reliable company to go through. My recruiter, Don, really put in the extra legwork to make sure I ended up with a good school. I've used AMS Korea twice now, and both times I've been impressed with their rapid responses, and the sheer amount of work their recruiters put in.

My recruiter was good at responding, and incredibly helpful when it came to sorting out my visa, and whenever there was a problem, he helped work out a solution. He also followed up with me after arriving in Korea, and made sure that everything was ok from time to time. In that respect, I feel that the company really cares for their teachers.

Although not a program per say, if you're considering moving to Korea, and want a recruiter that has your back, I would definitely recommend them.

When I began the application process, I had no idea about where to even begin. With the help of Don Park, I was able to easily complete the sometimes confusing application process in my home country, and Don's involvement led me to a very smooth transition into teaching in Korea. He was very open and honest about different job opportunities and the realities of moving to, living and working in Korea. He was really interested in finding a teaching position that would be the right fit for me.

Based on Don's recommendation, I took a position just outside of Seoul in the Spring of 2013. I have been in the same position for nearly 6 years and have been nothing short of grateful for the treatment I have received since I arrived in Korea.

Upon arrival, Don also kept in contact just to check on me to make sure I was doing well and satisfied with my position. This is a testament to how invested he is in the teachers he places. Whether you are an experienced ex-pat teacher, or it is your first time traveling overseas to teach, I cannot understate how helpful it is to have someone like Don Park in your corner.

All of the ads about living and working in Korea are true. There is a magic here in Korea. The culture, the cuisine, the arts, the history and the landscape are wonderful to be immersed in, as are the wonderful smiles you will see. What may not be true in the ads about working in Korea is the work environment, and that's where a trustworthy recruiter is not just necessary to have, but imperative. Don Park is as honest and trustworthy as they come. He also works hard to insure that you will be in the setting that you will be comfortable and productive in. Having worked in one bad teaching situation, Don Park proved to be a blessing. He is also very funny and great to be around. I'm very fortunate to have found Don and AMS. Cheers from Jeonju, South Korea!

I was really worried before I came to Korea about how I would get a job, especially since I heard so many horror stories about bad employers in Korea and the slim likelihood of getting a job in Seoul. However, I was incredibly lucky in that a friend of a friend was doing what I wanted to do and so I got in contact with them, who then forwarded me to their recruiter AMS Korea by chance. And I couldn't have asked for a better recruiter! Sometimes dealing with recruiters can be a daunting and quite frankly scary prospect, but AMS were nothing but helpful and endearing with not only mine but also a few of my friend's and co-worker's applications. They are incredibly open minded to all people looking for work and have been patient even when I had issues with my application. And not only that, because of the relationships the company has made, it was easy for them to get me a job in Seoul. And I was lucky with that too as I love my job; I thoroughly enjoy my job and it never feels like work.
I owe a lot to this company. I don't usually feel this passionately about these kinds of things, but I am so happy with my life in Seoul that I strongly believe that it is down to the amazing quality role that AMS found me in the capital.
Trust me, if you are feeling anxious or nervous (like I was) just contact them and I can guarantee you won't regret it!

What would you improve about this program?
I think just keep finding more great places to work in Seoul.

I have been in Korea for almost 2months now and it was the best decision I've ever made to teach here in Korea. I came with no experience of teaching and my first time being away from home for a long time, but do not have any regrets with my decision to teach in Korea. Kids are the same everywhere, and some days it can be a bit challenging when children play up or misbehave, but there are more good days than bad. I have so many kids that I look forward to teaching every week and a lot of them are so fun. It really makes the experience a good one.

Of course I have a lot more to see and experience here, but so far I've already had some very good experiences. Don Park from AMS also made it a very smooth process for me and I'm so grateful for the position I am in now. I'm in a great town called Jeonju, at a nice hagwon and have friendly staff members.

I can't wait to see what the rest of this year will bring me.
