Great experience for 1st time teacher in Korea

The team was very happy to assist through the entire process to ensure as seemless a move to Seoul as it could be. Always happy to answer questions and supportive of unique circumstances, there was really a large amount of effort and care that went into finding a job and immigrating overseas. The time difference did make communication challenging at times, but they were happy to accommodate when it came to video calls and interviews. Once we had arrived they even helped navigate us around the city and gave us recommendations of stores and places to go to help us get settled.

ESL Consulting made the process application in regards of searching the job, preparing for the interview, getting all of my documents ready, and more. Joy Oh is an excellent recruiter who helped me and answered all of my questions and doubts - she made sure I was taken care of as soon as I got to South Korea; best recruiting agency ever.
I recently started working as an English teacher in South Korea and the school was very helpful in giving me the training I need, there was communication between the managers and the teachers, and the amount of support I have received from other teachers is amazing, they all truly made me feel like home.

Pros
  • The school is very helpful.

Great help for a first time teacher.

I'm very happy with my help from Seoul ESL. I didn't want to be directly in Seoul and they helped me find a school that matched my values as a teacher and an area that I liked. When I arrived they answered any questions I had really quickly and I didn't experience many difficulties with their help!
I experienced Korea at the peak of covid so it was really nice to have help navigating all of the policies. They also gave me lots of tips on how much money to bring and what I should expect.
Plus my recruiter was very kind!

Pros
  • Fast replies to questions
  • Considered what I wanted
  • Gave great advice for landing and covid policies
Cons
  • They are based in Seoul, so with the time difference it was hard to contact when I was in America.

Amazing Experience with SeoulESL

SeoulESL has been so great from the beginning of my journey. Joy and Sammie are so kind and very helpful. Sammie did my initial interview and she was so friendly and lovely to speak with. Joy is always so quick to answer any of my questions and she continues to help me now that I have arrived in Seoul. I only had 2 months to prepare before my move and she was so awesome and supportive throughout this experience. The interview process was also very straightforward and I ended up with a great school. I definitely recommend SeoulESL to everyone.

Best Team Ever!

Since university, I had been seeking out an opportunity to expand my knowledge base and experience of other cultures, especially Korean culture. With that in mind, I started to look at what was available and happened to stumble upon the chance to teach English in South Korea.

ESL Consulting has helped and supported me through the entire process, including the visa process, interview process and connecting with the school I would be working for and even continued to help once I landed in Seoul, and with the taxi to my accommodation.

I would highly recommend ESL Consulting to anyone who is interested in teaching English in Korea.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Don't be anxious and always ask for help if you need it.

The ESL team will be there to guide you, support you and lead you in the right direction. This was the first time I travelled alone in my entire life and at no point did I ever feel concerned or lost, because the team was always available for me to contact.

As for the schools, my school was so kind, helpful and considerate. I had to do the quarantine once I arrived and they were kind enough to provide me with food, accommodation and supplies that lasted my entire quarantine, as well as they took me to get PCR tested personally.

Overall, though I had fears (as most do when they travel) I was never left feeling anxious or alone.

Highly Recommend!

SeoulESL made my dream of teaching in Korea a reality. They provided clear instructions, a lot of useful information, and quick responses throughout the entire process. Several interviewing opportunities came my way and I was even given tips on how to handle them. The daunting task of applying to work in a foreign country, obtaining my visa, and finding my way there became a walk in the park. Any question I had along the way was answered, and I never felt lost in what to do next. Even after arriving in Korea, I was checked up on and asked if everything was alright. SeoulESL ensures that you find what you're looking for and that any issues along the way are resolved.
