I travelled from London to South Korea in September 2016. The flight was a bit of a nightmare but I was very relieved when I was greeted by the driver sent by English Work. He drove me from Incheon to Gyoha, Paju-Si and introduced me to my new boss and the owner of the school. They were incredibly welcoming and friendly. This continued on with the staff at the school. Everyone was interested to learn about where I came from and why I had decided to travel and teach in Korea. The school was even better than what my recruiter, Michael Kim, had described. The students worked incredibly hard and, although they were a little nervous at first, grew to enjoy my lessons. The time flew so quickly - I enjoyed the town I lived in as it felt very authentic and peaceful, whilst the school was always busy and exciting.

I cannot explain how much I enjoyed my time in Korea and how grateful I am to all my co-teachers and students for making me so happy. I feel like I managed to help all of my students with their confidence in English. The social life where I lived was quieter than I expected, but this was more than made up for by the stunning nature I had on my doorstep.

I was very sad to leave my school and will always remember my time in Korea as one of the best experiences of my life.

I would like to thank English Work and Michael Kim very much for helping to achieve my dream of teaching in South Korea.

How can this program be improved?
Help teachers to find other teachers in their town so that they do not feel alone.

I had a brilliant year working in Gunsan City. The staff at the academy were all very friendly and willing to help with any problems I had. Teaching at the academy was really fun and rewarding and we held a lot of exciting events too. In the end I didn't want to leave Korea, I made so many great friends there and I miss my colleagues and students very much!

When I contacted English Work I spoke to Michael Kim. He organised a discussion over Skype so that we could discuss what I was looking for in a position in Korea. Having spent quite some time looking for a good position with other companies I was really surprised at how quickly Micheal found an ideal role for me. He arranged a phone interview with the manager of the academy, I knew straight away that I would love the place!

I was unsure how to complete the visa process but Micheal guided me through each step. He has been very helpful with any questions or requests I have before, during and even after my time in Korea.

I had a fantastic year working in Gunsan city. The staff I worked with were all super friendly and ready to help me with any problems I had.
The day to day teaching was also a lot of fun and we had some great events. It was really hard to leave at the end of the year and I miss my friends and students in Korea.

When I contacted English Work I spoke to Michael. We arranged a conversation over Skype where he asked me about what kind of positions I was looking for. Having searched for good positions with other companies for some time, I was amazed at how quickly Micheal came back with a great position. He arranged a phone interview with the Hagwon and I could tell immediately that I would love the place. I had no idea how to go about arranging my VISA but Micheal helped me with each step.

Micheal has continued to be a great help with any queries I have had since then. I would definitely recommend my experience to others!

I've loved working here. I've currently been here for 9 months when I'm writing this review, and it's been a great time. The school, teachers and children have all been great. Teaching has been fun, and relatively stress free. We have a lot of fun events, and I have a lot of room with how I teach my classes. It has been a great first experience in Korea, and it has made me want to stay in Korea for another year or two!

I don't really have many complaints. There are small things here and there, but overall I've been very pleased with working here. Yangju is a nice city, especially if you don't like super busy, noisy, big cities. However, the trip to Seoul can become annoying if you go multiple times a week. But for me, going once or twice on a weekend isn't too bad.

I have enjoyed my time in a South Korea immensely. Prior to this, I was a high school teacher and I worked in many schools but there really is no comparison in job satisfaction faction and overall enjoyment. I'd really like to thank Michael Kim for organising my position and being so helpful throughout the entire process. I'm quite sure I made it more difficult than it needed to be! He even initiated contact between myself and coworkers before my departure from Australia.
Thanks to this program I now spend my time hiking beautiful mountains, making new friends (Koreans and other foreigners), visiting incredible places, and genuinely enjoying going to work. Perhaps most importantly, I have had the opportunity to go out and make fool of myself at karaoke many times. So much fun!
Thank you again for this opportunity!
