First time in Korea

I would recommend using EnglishWorks to everyone who thinks of moving to South Korea to teach.

Back in July 2020, I've started looking for teaching positions and sent my application to Michael. After a few days, he arranged an interview with a school. The school owner was very nice, and the interview ran smoothly. I've been offered a job a few hours after and decided to accept it straight away. And I'm not regretting my decision.

Then, Michael walked me through the visa process and helped me with all the required paperwork. He was very prompt at answering any questions I had. At end of September, I've arrived in Korea, and I've been loving it.

I'm very pleased with my boss and co-workers. Namyangju is located only 40 minutes away on a bus to Seoul, and that was what I was exactly looking for.

I would definitively use EnglishWork services in the future again, and highly recommend them to anyone.

Review of English Work

In March 2020 I came in contact with Michael Kim from English Work.

He was able to secure me an interview very quickly and assisted me with the whole process of acquiring my visa and liaising with the school.

After arriving in Korea I was also assisted with a driver to transport me to the hotel where I was to spend my 14 days in quarantine.

I would highly recommend Michael Kim's service. Swift and expedient and highly professional and I recommend his service highly for any teacher who wants to experience Korea and build their ESL resume.

Highly Recommend!

Michael was amazing from the beginning of the process to the end. He really works hard to find you a job once you reach out to him. For example, I was able to get a job with one school but due to some last minute changes they cancelled on me. Right away, Michael found me another job which was even better! I especially appreciated his communication whether it was about the job offer, travel plans, and necessary documentations. It made making the decision to come to Korea easier. I highly recommend to use English Works through Michael!

finding a job overseas

So I was an assistant teacher trying to find a teaching job in South Korea. I was not optimistic in the beginning because I was overwhelmed and had gone through several recruiters. I worked with Michael and was so impressed. He had been great with walking me through the interview process and answering any questions I had. He kept in constant contact with me because of my concerns for moving and during coronavirus. I really appreciate his guidance and I appreciate the fact he found me a good school.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
For me everything was because they use different apps over here to travel- and I didn't understand as much of the language as I do now so small things like getting lost of the subway worried me. But you just have to get over it because you realize you need to do these every day little things to get by here.

Teaching Abroad

The Agent who I consulted was very helpful. I had a good experience with job offers very quickly after contacting the company. I was pleasantly surprised with the competency shown by the Agent and I am very grateful for the help. It is a big task to find good teaching jobs during Covid but Englishwork was able to provide excellent assistance.

I had someone pick me up from the airport and I had help every step of the way. I am happy with my workplace and got exactly what was promised. Very good

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Enjoy the experience and take it day by day. You with have a great time abroad and you can be happy with the service of Englishwork, you will be well taken care of.
