Great Experience with Travel and Teach Recruiting

My recruiter Jaemin was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. This will be the first time I am travelling abroad for work so I was a little unsure about the whole process. Jaemin was always available to answer any questions and made the entire experience easy and enjoyable. He worked quickly to set up interviews with good schools and upon receiving a job offer he continued to help throughout the contract and visa process. Despite the challenging times of dealing the the ongoing pandemic, he was accommodating and adaptive to the everchanging situation. I would recommend this service to anyone who is looking to find a position teaching abroad.

It always makes us happy to hear that we have helped someone achieve their dream of teaching in Korea - especially when it's their first time traveling abroad for work!

As all of our staff has taught and lived in Korea, we remember our first time stepping on that plane...so very exciting :)

Wishing you all the best on this exciting life journey. Please feel free to reach out to Jaemin or any of our staff should you need anything!! Have fun!!!

Travel and Teach was my recruiting agency and I highly recommend them. I moved to teach English in South Korea during COVID-19 and they were great with making sure everything still went smoothly. They vet the schools really well so you will end up at a good private school. I love my school, there are plenty of other friendly foreign teachers, and have already gotten the hang of teaching only two weeks into it! Hours can be long (but rewarding!) so make sure you love teaching and kids. My small city is also great, but my advice would be to look for a good school over a famous city because that's where you will be spending most of your time.

Hi Kathleen,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review - it's so nice to hear that you are happy with our services!

We are also so happy to hear that you are enjoying your school so much. We also completely agree with what you said about choosing a school over a 'famous city'. Most people get too caught up in the idea of working in a city that they have heard of rather than to look into the actual schools themselves. Having worked with some of our schools for 20+ years, we know that teachers will be happy there, regardless of the city they are in. The great thing about Korea is that you can travel anywhere in the country within hours anyway!

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

Travel and Teach Recruiting Agency - ESL Teacher Placement

My experience with Travel and Teach Recruiting has been AMAZING!!! Every step was clear and easy to follow and my recruiting agent, Jaemin, was the best. He was quick at answering any questions I had. They made the tedious process of collecting a visa so easy and stress free. I highly recommend this service to anyone that is considering teaching abroad. The biggest perk is the fact that you never have to pay anything and they ensure to place you in a school and city that matches your needs and wants. If you're looking for recruiters look no further and just stick to Travel and Teach, you will not regret it!

Travel & Teach - BEST Recruiter Service

Jaemin from Travel & Teach was an absolute PLEASURE to work with! The process of securing employment and moving abroad can be very unfamiliar and stressful for someone if its their first time, however Jaemin broke everything down and made the entire process very painless and straightforward! I was especially impressed as a Canadian as most visa assistance resources are geared towards Americans, but he knew the details of dealing with Canadian applicants as well as other nationalities!

I researched and applied to many recruiters but I always felt confident when speaking to Jaemin and he did a fantastic job in matching me to the perfect school for me, instead of just recommending that I work with whichever school was hiring at the time. He always answered all my questions very quickly and in great detail. He provided me with dozens of resources to educate me on moving abroad, learning a new culture and customs, and becoming an ESL teacher.

Selecting which recruiter you want to work with is a very important decision and you should feel completely confident in their abilities and trust them to advocate for your needs. Jaemin exemplified all of these qualities and I would absolutely recommend Jaemin and Travel & Teach when deciding on a recruiter, you won't be disappointed! :)

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
My advice to future travelers is to not let anything or anyone hold you back from your dreams. Be fearless and follow through with your decisions and take full advantage of living abroad and in interacting with the other foreign teachers as well as your students. There's something to learn from everyone and this experience will end up being one of the best you'll ever have.

Travel And Teach in Korea—A Definite YES!

I’ve been planning on teaching English in Korea for over a year now, and Travel and Teach Recruiting was highly recommended to me by a friend of mine who used them to find a reputable school and a stable position. I was not disappointed! They found a great school for my friend and me to teach at together with a higher paying salary than most positions and a comfortable apartment. They offered step-by-step guidance throughout the entire visa application process, too, which received a lot of stress, especially while applying during the Covid-19 pandemic. If you are looking for a way to experience international culture/travel while earning a living (also if you’re good with kids ;)), I highly recommend Travel and Teach recruiting!

Best decision I ever made

Using Travel ad Teach was the best decision I had ever made when it came to finding my place overseas. This was my first time overseas, and applying for jobs with my TEFL certificate, and Teach and Teach did everything they could to make it one of the best experiences I had ever had. They were with me every step of the way, and even with the time difference, (I am from Australia), I felt they made every effort to make the experience easier and less stressful on my end. The school I was placed with is so amazing. The kids are great, the other teachers are so welcoming and they help you adjust to your life here really well. If I ever need anything again, I know that my recruiter is only an email away with any questions that I may have. It is one of the best decisions that I have ever made, and you should do the same!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
My advice would be to take the jump and do it! I started my journey in September, and other than a few adjustment issues (everyone has them), it has been one of the best things that I have ever done. The experiences that I have been able to have because of this, has helped me grow and learn in ways that I could not even imagine. It is the best thing that I have ever done.

Teaching in Korea

I've now been teaching in Korea for 8 months and I have loved my experience here so far! I have absolutely fallen in love with Seoul and Korean food and I enjoy my job and have made great friends! I recommend this program to anyone who is looking for an adventure and to someone who wants to push themselves out of their comfort zone! T&T was great at helping me find my job and with all the steps before arriving in Korea! I love living in the heart of Seoul and have never felt more safe living in a big city!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
If I had to offer some advice it would be to make the most of the experience and truly treasure and make the most of every day. Every weekend I try to do something new, whether that's visiting a new museum, cafe etc. or even trying a new dish. I think its the best way to really experience the city and culture!

My Korean Experience

My experience here in Korea has been amazing, even though it has only been four months. I have met some awesome people and made some new friends while teaching here. I am currently located in Daegu and I love it! Downtown is always a place I go for shopping and food! The people are very friendly and welcoming. There are so many places to see and so many photos to take! During the fall is beautiful with all the changing leaves. Winter so far has been very mild for me. Being from Colorado, I am used to heavy snow and very cold days. I didn't think I would miss snow this much! I am very excited to see where my adventure takes me!

What would you improve about this program?
My recruiter has been very helpful during my placement process. He had answers for me with any question I asked. I wouldn't change a thing.

Hi Hailey - thanks for your review!

Enjoy the rest of your year and reach out at any time 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.
