Beyond thankful for Michael from EnglishWork. Before him, i emailed other recruiters who never really got back to me or just gave up on trying to help me. But not Michael! After i emailed him, in the same day I got an email back to set up a simple Skype interview where he asked me some basic questions. After the interview within a few days I got my first interview with a school. The interview went well, as Michael gives you tips and whatnot to make sure you do well on the interview. I passed the interview and accepted the job offer. Whatever questions I had about the school and sending in the documents, he would answer them in a timely manner. Because of that, sending in all the paperwork was a quick and painless process. Extremely thankful to Michael for helping me on this adventure.

I should say thank you to Michael who helped me a lot in applying for the position available in Changwon. From the very first day I got in touch with him it was like I am exchanging emails with a friend. Due to a mistake happened during the application process my original document was sent to him from the UK but I know that it is in safe hands and I will get it back in a few days.
What he told me through emails about the town I was going to live in and also the school were all truth without any exaggeration. Now that I am here for a week the city and the school are what I expected, a friendly school and a small vibrant town close to a big city.
Over all I am very happy with the service I received from Michael and the company, english work.

What would you improve about this program?
Can't think of anything now, maybe at the end of the contract and becoming more familiar I will have some ideas to share.

Interested in teaching abroad in Asia for the first time, I decided to apply through this agency and within 24 hours recieved an email from Michael Kim who then wanted to set up a simple skype chat.

I will admit I was a little worried because I couldn't see him clearly in the video chat as the light from the background blurred his face. However, it ended up being a nice simple, chat where he asked basic questions. After the chat, he immediately sent my CV out to other employers within 24 hours. During our chat he gave advice on interview tips and was overall very helpful.

About a day or two later he emailed me informing me of a potential position. However, after the interview with this employer I was declined. However, Michael searched out for other job opportunities and again I was set up with my second interview.

After this second interview, I was offered the position as an English Teacher. I was also please I was declined from the first job interview as it was just over 3 hours away from Seoul.

After this time, Michael stayed in close contact with me, every email I sent he replied within hours and would let me know everything there was to know about the process and all documents I needed including visa and how to apply, the school contract, and the handling and posting of the documents. He was the middle man and kept communication between the school and I right up to the time I arrived to South Korea.

Upon arriving I was greeted by a kind man who paid my bus ticket and assisted me with my luggage and waited till I was on the bus till he left.

I am now 5.5 months into my contract and although it has been a huge learning process as this is my first Asian country I have visited, I have learnt to love the culture and people. The teaching experience is beyond words and definitely a learning experience. I definitely recommend Michael and this agency to anyone interested in teaching in South Korea, It's legit! Also, during the weekends and holidays its a great time to visit and explore South Korea giving an added bonus to your teaching experience.

I have now been working in Korea for the past 5 months. I contacted Michael regarding teaching English in Korea, he worked really hard finding me jobs and interviews. Within the first few days after a Skype interview with him, I had my first interview at a Hagwon. I then accepted the job to work there. It has been a smooth transition so far without any problems or issues. The work environment is great and the other foreign teachers are very friendly and kind. They have made this transition a lot easier.

Michael provided great service for my needs and provided great information and answered all the questions that I asked. He found a great location for me and I am very happy with my life here in Korea. If you are interested in working in Korea I would recommend working with Michael.

I am having a wonderful time in Korea so far. I cannot thank Michael Kim enough for finding me such an ideal position. Michael was very helpful and supportive throughout the process, answering all my queries and making sure everything was in place so that my move to Korea went smoothly. Also, I really appreciated Michael's honesty about the difficulties with finding a suitable position for British Asians. Nonetheless, he was able to find a wonderful academy that mostly hires British teachers, in the city of Changwon.

My academy is great with a brilliant boss and lovely co-workers. My boss is also incredibly helpful and made sure to accompany me to my medical check and helped me open a bank. Everyone is very caring and I really enjoy going into work everyday. Furthermore, the academy is very well run and I don't have to worry about things like getting paid late.

I would definitely recommend English Work for anyone hoping to teach english in South Korea.
