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!

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!

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!

Absolutely incredible, I couldn't have done it without them!!! They organised everything and were always available to answer any questions, big or small. From day one there service was incredible, I couldn't recomend this company enough. They helped with everything from understanding the visa process. Helping throughout the process, to organising the interview and tips for that to arrival information. They also provide information on what to do and see while in South Korea. I honestly couldn't have done it without them.

Awesome and super helpful :D

I had so many questions and obstacles to getting me to Korea, however, my recruiter was super helpful. I am forever thankful for his help and I cannot express how happy I am to have had his help. I did apricate his help especially when I was a day away from getting on a flight but tested positive for covid. He helped me contact the airline and my accommodation in South Korea as well as assured me everything was okay. During the entire week of me having covid he consistently checked in on me and I really loved that.

Travel and Teach is Amazing!

I was so worried about moving abroad and I heard from people in other programs that they didn't know where they were being placed or even how to get in touch with their recruiter. With Travel and Teach my recruiter was in constant contact with me to make sure I knew what I was doing and explained everything. I also was able to message them any time and go back some pretty quick responses. Also, whenever something changed or there was new, my recruiter sent it to me really quick so I was never in the dark about anything!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Do not be afraid to ask questions! I think I emailed my recruiter 26 times in one day and he answered every silly question I had.

Thank you for the kind review, Jillian!

As the majority of our staff were once teachers in Korea too, we know that our teachers have a lot of questions and concerns that they need to have addressed before committing to a year or more in Korea.

We are therefore happy to answer any questions and to keep our teachers fully aware of what is ahead once they get to Korea.

What you heard from your friends is unfortunately all too common...but the bottom line is If you don't know where you are going in Korea of you can't get in touch with your recruiter, you're simply working with the wrong people :)

Enjoy your time in Korea and let us know if you need anything!

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.
