Seoul Korea

The Travel Overseas staff was helpful and responsive to all my questions. They found me a job very quickly and I could not be happier with them. The school I work for is a standard private academy overseen by a larger company. They pay on time, are fair with their work conditions and hours, give support for new teachers, and are generally professional. There is a team atmosphere here which helps everyone feel supported. However, one big negative is the lack of multimedia support in the classroom. We do not even have audio players for the audio in the textbook, and much of the audio in the textbooks cannot be accessed. The textbooks are very old and outdated. There are a lot of traditional resources such as flashcards, but this is one area that really limits teaching. Lastly, sometimes work will become busy with almost no hours in the day due to writing report cards. This happens about every two months. The kids are great and the Korean staff are extremely helpful in assisting newcomers to Korea. I would recommend this job for someone looking for an entry level position in Korea.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Come prepared to not have internet, a permanent phone number, or a bank account for approximately two months. This is due to immigration wait times to get an alien registration card and not the school.
Pros
  • Supportive
  • Reliable Pay
  • Fair work hours
Cons
  • Lack of multimedia support
  • Huge increase in workload every two months
  • Late work hours

Hi William,

We appreciate the kind words and also the feedback you have sent. We have sent you a personal email to discuss the inner workings of your school.

It is important to mention that most schools do require a good amount of work from their teachers when it comes to report cards, but as you mentioned, this is only every 2 months or so.

Please keep us posted on your progress or any other issues you may have. You know where to find us :)

Thanks again!

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to Jaemin at Travel and Teach for his exceptional assistance in finding me a teaching job in Korea. Jaemin's dedication, professionalism, and expertise were instrumental in making the entire process seamless and stress-free. He took the time to understand my preferences and needs, and he matched me with the perfect teaching position. Thanks to Jaemin's help, I am now embarking on an exciting journey teaching abroad. I highly recommend Jaemin and Travel and Teach to anyone seeking teaching opportunities in Korea. Thank you once again for your outstanding support!

Warm regards,
CJ Toner

I feel like Travel and Teach is a hidden gem amongst many other recruiters

The recruiter I was in contact with was very nice, very sweet, and he helped me with many many things which made the entire daunting like process much easier. I would definitely recommend T&T for anyone wanting to teach English specifically in South Korea. After applying, I literally found myself teaching English in South Korea. Wild man, wild. The hagwon that I was hired by is also very nice. The director is a really nice guy who has.been very helpful. The other teachers have been very helpful as well and silly. The kids all love them. Of course it's not perfect but you've gotta take the ups with the downs. I could very well see myself staying for a full contract or more. I think for a couple of years at least.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
Getting use to understandingredients basic phrases while shopping or eating out was a challenge at first but with a little practice and some listening practice, you'll pick it up pretty quickly.
Pros
  • So much help
  • Resources
  • Knowledge
Cons
  • Initiation is a little slow

Could not have been better!

Throughout the entire process of getting a visa, setting up interviews, all the way to boarding the plane, I received so much help and support from Jaemin and the Travel and Teach team. There's a lot that goes into preparing to live and work abroad, and I would have been lost without T&T. I am into my first week of teaching and alread love my school, the students, my coworkers, and the area where I love. Jaemin helped set up my arrival in Korea as well as traveling from the airport to my current city. I also got loads of helpful information about things like setting up my phone to use internationally, getting an ARC and ID card, and getting in contact with the current foreign teachers at my school. I found out that the other foreign teachers also worked with Travel & Teach and had similarly great experiences. Couldn't be happier!

Pros
  • Quick response times
  • Considerate of applicants wants/needs
  • Extremely informative

Best Support and Easy Process!

I've been working with Jaemin for a few months and it's been such an easy and fun process! It was really nice to have one person dedicated to helping me from start to finish through the process. Jaemin has always provided fast and thorough responses, often anticipating questions before I could even ask them. He set up multiple interviews for me to shop around different jobs and provided all the information I could ask for to make the best decision for my wants/needs. After I chose a job Jaemin/Travel and Teach helped with me through the entire visa process and sent over a packet to help aid me with the move. Everything has been very organized and easy. Travel and Teach removed all the stress I had about starting this new adventure. I can't recommend them enough!

Pros
  • Fast Response Time
  • Informative
  • Helpful

Impressed!

I was extremely impressed with the professionalism and thoroughness that Travel and Teach provided. My recruiter Jaemin was so responsive and friendly in all of my communications with him. Even with the help I received from Jaemin, I still found the process to be confusing and I really don't know how I would have navigated it on my own. I am thankful for his help and for his patience answering my 100's of questions!

I would definitely recommend using the Travel and Teach service to anyone looking to teach in Korea. I’m now in Korea and I love my school, my students and the area I live in. Thank you!!

Definitely Recommend!

I am about to board the plane. I have been looking forward to teach abroad ever since I graduated last December. Because of documents not being ready in time I was not able to obtain a position as a teacher through a public school. This did not make me give up, back in August I came across Travel&Teach. They were my last hope in becoming a teacher in South Korea. Travel&Teach were very nice and helpful throughout my entire process. Jaemin was able to answer all the questions I had and help me find the best school based on what I was looking for.
This review is for those who are looking for a sign to tell them to whether or not to try Travel&Teach.
I am super excited to start this new chapter. I hope that whoever is reading this also gets the same great experience with the staff at Travel&Teach.

So Helpful!

My recruiter Jaemin was very helpful during the application process all the way until I got my visa and booked my flight to the new country! He was quick to respond if I had questions and addressed all of my concerns. The school I work at now is the perfect fit for me according to my initial desires/needs. So far I am also pleased with my location, housing, and the school's program and director. I feel that I can really get involved well here in the way I want. I would highly recommend this oppurtunity! So thankful!

Pros
  • Easy Application
  • Prepares you every step of the way

Questions & Answers

Hi Cazedi, Unfortunately the Korean government requires people to have a BA in order to get a working visa.

HI Leila, There are only 7 countries that South Korea will grant teaching visas to. They are: Canada, the US, the UK, Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia. If you are not a citizen of one of these countries, there unfortunately is no chance for you to get a teaching visa for Korea.

Hi Angel, Yes, we are still active :) I don't see your application, so please feel free to submit it again here: https://www.travelandteachrecruiting.com/apply-now/

Hi Alicia, You only need to have a Bachelor's degree in order to teach in Korea, so age isn't a factor.
