About Program

Come teach English in one of the world's greatest cities ~ Seoul. Gone2Korea works with lots of established English schools in Seoul and throughout the greater Seoul Metropolitan area.

Positions in Seoul are available year round, however, the majority of job vacancies become available at the start of each semester - late February and late August. In most cases it's best to apply 3-5 months prior to your preferred starting date because many schools try to fill their upcoming job vacancies well in advance.

Once you're ready to begin our friendly team of placement coordinators, all former teachers, are here to guide you through the job and visa application process. To get things started please visit our website and submit an online application, or get in touch for additional information. We look forward to hearing from you!

Great support, easy transition and fun new experiences

The process of finding a teaching job abroad, and moving all the way across the world is a bit overwhelming when you are first seeking out information and browsing your options. Starting the process can feel simultaneously like information overload, yet also like you still know nothing about how to go about it. This feeling can definitely be a deterrent from moving forward in your search, but that is why finding a program that knows what they are doing and can help you is so wonderful!
Go Overseas made the process of applying to jobs and landing one much less stressful. I felt supported, and received fast responses to my questions throughout the process. The process of getting my job (which I love!), would not have been nearly as smooth and uncomplicated without Go Overseas. Thank you Go Overseas!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
As simple as it sounds, be open minded! There are going to be moments of culture shock, and perhaps frustration along with said culture shock, that might leave you feeling isolate, peeved or just uncomfortable. That's totally expected, but don't let those moments define your experience! I won't tell you to assimilate to the culture fully, but adapt, get to know the culture a bit more personally - make friends, do some research, get out of your accommodation and explore! As fun as traveling and living abroad is, it is also very challenging, so keep that in mind, but don't let it deter you! Some of the best memories are just waiting to be made if you seek them out!

Thanks Gone2Korea!

I have to say, this whole experience felt a bit daunting to begin with but honestly with their help, it made the journey a lot easier.
They would always reply to my emails so quickly and to answer all my enquiries or concerns I had.They most importantly helped me find the School that suited me best so I am eternally greatful.
I would definitely recommend anyone use this recruitment agency. They really want to get to know you first so they can find the perfect fit for you which I think is so important.

So helpful

This recruiting agency made sure I got exactly what I wanted when finding a job abroad. I had extra issues with paperwork and my documents, and I received daily guidance to fix everything I needed to land the job I wanted. When two other recruiting agencies (before this program) told me that I was not going to be to land a job in the area I wanted, I knew I made a great choice here when I had multiple job offers that coincided with exactly what I asked for. I never felt completely on my own or misguided, and the agency was helpful all the way through booking my flight and accommodation prior to the start of my work.

Gone2Korea review

I used Gone2Korea as a recruiter to move to Seoul, South Korea. They were incredibly helpful (replying to emails quickly, answering all my questions).
Ensure you do your own research into the schools you are offered too. It does feel a bit like a leap into the dark because you won't see the school before you go, so make sure you ask specific questions in your interview & to the foreign teacher they put you in touch with.

Also note that it will be hard work! Some classes are a challenge behaviour-wise so the job won't always be smooth sailing!

Pros
  • Pre-planned lessons (no extra work)
  • Location! Seoul
Cons
  • Hard work! Be prepared
  • No hagwon is perfect

Thank you Gone2Korea!

Since graduating university, I knew I wanted to teach abroad but I had no idea where to start with actually finding a job. My friends recommended Gone2Korea to me and I absolutely cannot express adequately how wonderful my experience with them has been!

Not only were they incredibly helpful and thorough in finding out my preferences and ideal locations, but they were also super efficient with arranging interviews for me to partake in and thanks to them, I landed a job I’m absolutely loving so far!

Moving to a whole new country can be a really scary process but I have to say that Gone2Korea made it so much easier for me. They let me know everything I needed to do and when, so that I wasn’t left unprepared or stressed about where to begin with the process. They were always available to answer my questions (even the little ones that felt stupid) and they always did so really fast, which was always lovely and reassuring!

Overall, I’d absolutely recommend Gone2Korea if you’re looking to teach in Korea. They’re a lovely team who will go above and beyond to help you get there and ensure that everything runs smoothly for you.

Thank you so much! 🤍

Pros

  • Attentive to my preferences

Amazing experience

I love Francis Parker. It has great facilities, a great teaching program (even though the kids are a little overworked) and the staff are very welcoming and always ready to help new teachers and students. As for the Go Overseas program, all of my questions were always answered (even if sometimes it took a little longer than I would like haha) and they are very helpful to make this adventure as smooth sailing as possible. I would love to be able to talk to the school personally before I arrived in Korea but it's okay. I would choose this school and program again in a heartbeat!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Being a first time teacher, I was very anxious that the kids would not like me but the staff were so helpful and encouraging that once I saw the kids for the first time, I knew that I would do great.
Pros
  • always answer my millions of questions
Cons
  • not in contact with the school itself until you fly in the country.

Fantastic service!

Moving to South Korea can be incredibly daunting. Not only is it a vastly different culture and climate from where I originate, but there are endless horror stories online that might deter you from taking the leap. Gone2Korea made the process for me incredibly straight forward. They sort all the processing and visa documentation for you, approach schools on your behalf and arrange flights etc - I've lived abroad before (in Australia), and that was less straightforward than this. For each school they find they send over a digital leaflet with all the critical information (work hours, salary, location, how many other foreign teachers etc.) which makes decision making a lot easier. You can generally contact foreign teachers ahead of interviews too, so that you can get an honest impression of what the hagwons are like. I was speaking predominantly with Hosoon who I'd personally like to shout out. They were very prompt with replies, and patiently answered all my questions. I'm at a school in Nowon, Seoul, and I love it there. Couldn't recommend G2K enough. Cheers.
