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!

Jaemin with Travel and Teach has been the biggest help during this time. He was able to get me into touch with great schools in the areas I wanted to be in, and was able to answer all my questions in a timely manner. Along with making sure I would be comfortable for my interviews. Jaemin was great at explaining the contract and making sure I had the correct documents ready, especially since things are a bit different right now with covid restrictions. The whole experience was great and I highly recommend them if you're looking for an English teaching job!

Travel and Teach Recruitment: South Korea Placement

Around June 2021 I was faced with the sudden realization that I was graduating and the only part of my graduate career that I had enjoyed was teaching. So, I decided I wanted to take a gap year without being unemployed for a year and that is when I found Travel & Teach Recruiting. T&T was incredibly supportive throughout the whole process of looking for teaching positions in South Korea. They helped with gathering documents, setting up interviews, keeping me up to date on Covid regulations, providing PDFs on what life as a teacher in SK would be like, and more. My recruiter, Jaemin, was always quick to email back and he really took my teaching preferences to heart when setting up interviews. He never made me feel pressured to accept an offer and I really felt like he wanted me to find the best teaching position possible. Thanks to T&T I'm currently in SK waiting out my quarantine period and I already feel so supported and welcomed by my school!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Keep an open mind! I went into this with a huge list of preferences for the schools I would want to interview and work with. My recruiter found and set up interviews with all of these preferences, he worked hard to provide what I asked for. He also offered positions that didn't quite fit my list to provide me more variety in job positions, and I am so glad he did. I ended up accepting an offer from a school that didn't fit into my "perfect school preference list" and I love my new position.

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.
