Questions & Answers

Yes! Typically, the first week when you arrive at your new school, there is a training period. Although this may vary from school to school, it usually includes a series of observations, where you get the opportunity to see the typical routines and protocols being performed during a normal lesson from other teachers, as well as a one-on-one review of the curriculum, your teaching schedule, etc....
The basic tertiary requirement is to have a minimum of a bachelors degree! If your degree is not in education, it is also required to have a TEFL certification to allow you to obtain the skills and knowledge to teach students whose first language is not English.
Hi Wai Yee, It is certainly possible if you are of Asian descent and from one of the 7 countries that Korea will grant a working visa to. If you are not from one of those countries, unfortunately you won't be granted a visa though, even though you speak perfect English and have experience teaching. I hope this helps!
I am not Asian American myself, so I cannot comment from personal experience, but I can say that I recently completed a a teaching seminar with EBY Talking Club in Seoul, and of the six other foreign teachers there, two of them were Asian American. While it may have been harder for them to get a job of this type (I didn't think to ask), I can say that it is certainly possible. I hope this helps.

A smooth and professional experience

Travel and Teach Recruiting Inc has made the process of finding teaching positions for me and my girlfriend overseas a simple and painless experience. From the very beginning they made us feel as though finding us positions were their number one priority. They guaranteed us of the quality of positions and assured us that the school we would be working with met their standards of professionalism. This is definitely been the case. We have loved every second of our experience and we could not have done it without the help and guidance of the wonderful recruiter Shane from Travel and Teach Recruiting Inc.

How can this program be improved?
Having a little more information about the city we were placed in would have been nice. Its been wonderful we just didn't know what to expect until we got here.

An excellent company to get involved with

I could not ask for a better school to get paired up with from Travel and Teach. The atmosphere perfectly fits my style, and the people working there are very friendly. Upon getting to my school, I had already become close friends with my co-teachers and through them I was able to make many more friends within a matter of days. This pairing not only fit my ideal workplace, but also my interests in terms of activities my co-teachers liked to do. I have only been here a month and a half and I have joined a soccer league with many of my friends, I have traveled around and visited many different areas, and I have settled in very nicely to my new life in Korea. Travel and Teach is entirely to thank for the perfect placement for me.

How can this program be improved?
I personally did not have any problems with this program and because of that, I cannot think of anything I would want to change.

Great Placement- Zero support

Travel and teach was incredibly helpful in finding a great school, but that's about it. I personally reached out to my soon to be co-workers to find out what to actually expect, as the information I had been given was wrong. Once I got to Korea, I never heard from Travel and Teach again.

How can this program be improved?
In country support. Or at least a check in
Response from Travel and Teach Recruiting Inc.

Hi Meghan,

I am sorry to hear that you feel we did not provide any after service for you once you arrived in Korea.

An email was sent to you on July 1st to see how you were doing, but we did not receive a response. I see that we only have your university email account that you provided, which seems to have expired. This is likely the reason why you did not receive our message.

We did check in with your director around the same time, who said that you were doing great and were adjusting well.

I have also gone through our correspondence and did not find any notes about any discrepancies in the information about the school that was provided to you.

Please get in touch with us to discuss any matters further as we want your experience in Korea to be as good as it can be.

Yes, I recommend
