40-hour Online Culture, History & Language Course
This brilliant 1-week online course is designed to prepare you for your teaching adventure in South Korea. Once you have been offered a teaching placement you will be sent access to this mandatory course which is completed online before you go to Korea, usually a few weeks before your departure date. The course will give you an in-depth understanding of Korean culture and society, plus plenty of advice about how to live and work in Korea. It also offers the ideal opportunity to connect with other prospective teachers online so you’ll already have a network of new friends before you arrive.

Paid Teaching Placements
Your paid teaching placement in South Korea is a one-year contract.
Itineraries will vary depending on your individual school placement. You can expect to work a 5-day week (around 30 hours per week in total, working 6 hours per day) with two consecutive days off per week. You will be eligible for paid holidays during your 12-month contract, and will also receive days off on national holidays.
Inclusive In-country Cultural Excursions & Language Classes
Twice a year all of our teaching participants have the opportunity to take part in amazing, all-inclusive cultural excursions and language classes. The expected start dates will be February/March and October/November each year, as these are popular times to begin the teaching placement.
These cultural weekends will build on what you have learned from your pre-arrival online courses, and broaden your understanding of South Korean culture and history. You’ll also learn a little of the wonderful language spoken locally! These experiences will assist your integration into South Korea and bring down cultural barriers between you and your students.
The course runs over three consecutive weekends in the capital of South Korea, Seoul. With accommodation included for each Saturday night, you can immerse yourself in Korean culture, make new mates, learn a little of the Korean language, and have fun!
