 I had amazing tutors and an amazing group of people who were also training, it was simply amazing! I have now been in a teaching placement for a month and it's almost as if I was made for teaching English!

Jobs for Native English and Non-Native English Speakers

Whilst essentially anyone can come on this course and teach English in South Korea, it’s important to note that there are specific requirements. Non native English speakers wishing to do the course must submit a written essay at the application stage, in order for us to assess their written English skills. If successful at this stage, like all successful applicants you will be invited to an online video interview, at which point your spoken English will also be assessed as part of the interview process.

In terms of the job placement services, through our experience we know those who are native English speaking and who hold a bachelor's degree (any subject) will normally secure jobs within 30 days after the end of the training - and in most cases this is shorter.

Those who are not native English speaking or do not hold a bachelor’s degree can also attend this course (having met the criteria stated above) but must be aware that employers will often be looking for native English speakers primarily, and so we advise them to be as flexible as possible as to salary and location. Native English speaking teachers are preferred in South Korea but many employers will accept non-native English speakers as long as they meet their requirements. Non-native English speakers may have to wait a little longer to get a job in their desired location. See more about eligibility on this page.
