Korean Horizons helped me tremendously with my transition to teaching English in Korea. They walked me through obtaining all the necessary documents, prepped me for the interview, and continued to assist me when I landed in Korea by providing me picking me up at the airport, providing me with accommodation for a night, and treating everyone to a meal before we went off to orientation. Korean Horizons makes moving to Korea very easy and stress-free.

Korean Horizons is the only company I would recommend. The application process for teaching in Korea seemed extremely daunting but Alistair was helpful and supportive throughout the entire experience. He takes the time to walk you through each stage and even helps you prepare for interviews. He made himself available to me through my many anxious moments and his calm and pragmatic approach really helped to make the entire process less painful. The best part of my experience with Korean Horizons was the effort, dedication and most of all, the care Alistair shows new recruits. I am teaching through the GOE program and Alistair picked up all the new recruits from the airport. He took us to dinner and spent the next two days with us making sure we got from point A to B and completed all our assessments. Korean Horizons is not required to do any of this and the same service was not provided to people who come through different recruitment companies.

I believe that true character and intent is shown in the way you treat others when you have nothing to gain. A true testament to the ethos of Korean Horizons was when Alistair basically took on new recruits who came through other companies and provided them with the same service and care he showed his own. If you want to come to Korea, use Korean Horizons, you won't regret it.

honestly, from the bottom of my heart, I cannot thank Alistair enough. Korean Horizons is the only place you should consider when applying for EPIK. I had a very stressful year and wasn't sure if I could make the 2018 Fall Intake due to documents not being ready in time, and Alistair was there every step of the way to support me and offer me advice. Alistair and his Korean Horizons are honestly the best of the best, and I am very grateful for both. Having Alistair meet me at the airport, help with suitcases and put us up in a hotel for the night, meeting other EPIK teachers and having a group dinner was a beautiful way to begin our Korean adventures. Thank you.

To all the newcomers who have varying levels of experience, but on the lesser end of the scale --I understand how you feel. I graduated with a bachelors in English but without any true teaching experience. My teaching resume is slim, but I do have my TESOL and a volunteer position that I completed during my last year of University where I assisted in an elementary classroom weekly. Teaching is very new to me, to say the least...so you can imagine how daunting this experience looked/looks from the outset. What I will say is that everything that I was nervous about, i.e., arriving, meeting other expat teachers, meeting my co-teachers/staff, and processing my ARC (alien registration card), has all gone very well and as stress-free as can be in this situation thanks to the ongoing support of Korean Horizons, and my recruiter Alistair. I was put in contact with 30 or so teachers like myself within my first 2 days, and the support is helping me adjust quickly. Before I arrived my recruiter checked in with me and helped me with the extreme amount of paperwork and document processing that was required. I never felt alone throughout the process. With all of that in mind, I really do appreciate the support I've been given by Korean Horizons, and I do recommend them for first-time teachers and general noobies like myself. All the best with your decision-making and prospective travels!

How can this program be improved?
I originally applied to the EPIK program but later applied to GOE because I missed the deadline. I was part of the EPIK fb group, but I wasn't told that there was a GOE fb group, so I legitimately had no clue about the GOE expats who would be arriving/beginning with me. Not a big deal, but they did for the majority have some familiarity with each other because they were in contact before arriving in Korea. I adjusted pretty seamlessly anyway, but it would've been a little more comforting to get on the plane knowing that I was awaiting such a large group of support. I thought there were only 2 (if that) other teachers starting GOE through Korean Horizons.

I would highly recommend using Korean Horizons for applying to EPIK. I was nervous about the application process, documents needed, and interview process but with this recruiter I received emails in a timely fashion reminding me what I needed to do. Additionally, I had an interview prep and the application proof-read! All of my many emails were responded to within 24hrs and when I accidentally slept through my scheduled interview time my recruiter was able to reschedule it immediately. Once arriving in Korea I was picked up from the airport, had a delicious meal, a good nights sleep, and was even given information about my city of Gwangju. I think the service provided is well worth it and offers great piece of mind! I would highly recommend applying through Korean Horizons!
