Helpful and Take Preferences into Account

I have been in South Korea for almost two years now and it was all with the help of Seoul ESL. They were great at walking me through the necessary paperwork and answering all my questions. They also stayed in contact with me after I arrived and made sure things were going smoothly. They were always ready to answer questions or confer with my school if needed. The staff was also patient with my endless questions. I recommend this program especially for building your resume and you have the welcome flexibility of being as thorough in your questions as you like.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
Although I had done research on traveling within the area I did not expect it to be so easy to get around and shop for supplies. It was a pleasant surprise!

They helped me so much!

I have been in South Korea for about a month now and it would not be possible without Seoul ESL! They helped alot when it came to understanding the necessary paperwork in travel during the pandemic and aided in any problems I had. They also stayed in contact with me once I landed and helped me through all the quarentine requirements to ensure everything was done safely and correctly. The employees were always patient and helped me with all my little questions. They were so helpful! I would recommend them to any traveler!

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
I started my first day after quarentine on Halloween. It was so cute and surprising to see alot of children dressed up around my area. The English school I teach in celebrated but so did neighbouring schools and children.

Very supportive and responsive team

Joy from SeoulESL has been amazing in helping me get a placement in South Korea. Navigating the international jobs market is hard, and Joy answered all my questions, provided extensive and detailed information about anything I needed, and was even on hand via messenger to answer and queries I had while in quarantine and help me get to my medical appointments etc. I don't think I would have been able to navigate the additional complications of covid and quarantine in a country where I speak very little of the language without her help.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
I would advise doing as much research as possible, but understand that everything you find on the Internet is also one person's experience, and your experience could differ quite a lot from that. Knowing yourself, knowing what you want to get out of the program and ultimately experiencing it and making your own mind up about things will be your ultimate guide.

Unmatched support during pandemic throughout a daunting process

Navigating a foreign job market as an immigrant is never an easy task, let alone during the highly uncertain and ever-changing times of COVID. Work abroad opportunities need to be analysed carefully, especially since some services are in limited supply due to pandemic-related restrictions.

Thanks to SeoulESL I not only got placed in one of my top 2 areas of interest, but landed an attractive and reputable opportunity at a private school within a week of sending the agency my application materials.

Joy was, and continues to be, my main point of contact, and I cannot emphasise how instrumental her support was throughout the process: from keeping me informed on the status of my Visa Confirmation Number, to arranging a job interview promptly via Skype and being on call while I was at the airport, I cannot stress how important having the right kind of help is to make the most out of your teach abroad experience.

Joy consistently checked in during my two week quarantine, and communicated with the school to ensure I had transportation to travel to and from the PCR test site, and asked if there was anything I required assistance with.

I highly recommend SeoulESL as a reliable partner in your exciting ESL journey!

Teach English in Korea with ESL Consulting - SeoulESL

I would highly recommend SeoulESL's services. Joy and Sammie were such a huge help in terms of finding interviews, helping us to prepare for the interviews and guiding us throughout our whole journey and quarantine process. With all the extra complications of Covid-19 it just felt extra vital to have their guidance and experience.

They were informative, supportive and always so helpful and kind, and Joy especially went above and beyond to address all of our questions and concerns. I would highly recommend them to anyone who's considering teaching in Korea for the first time.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Just do as much research as you can and listen to the advice you'll get.

Made a very stressful experience so much more manageable!

I’m so happy me and my boyfriend decided to go with Seoul ESL as they really ensured our move to Korea was as smooth as possible. They were very good at accommodating us and our plans to teach in Korea together as a couple. They were also very quick at responding to questions and were so helpful and attentive throughout our quarantine. Joy was so easy to talk to and really made what was already a very stressful time to move (with Covid) much more doable and straightforward. I would highly recommend this service!

Experience with Seoul ESL

When I was looking for schools and job openings in Korea, I had discovered Seoul ESL. Even with my first intro interview with them, I could tell that they cared about who they were talking to and took their preferences into consideration when it came to looking at which schools to interview with. I am in love with the school I am at and I am so grateful for everything Seoul ESL did pre and post arrival in Korea. They were so helpful and I am so appreciative. They were transparent with every question and concern I had about moving to Korea.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Do not be afraid to ask questions if something is unclear. It will be beneficial in the long run!
