It's OK to drop in for a short time. Two returnees from Korea will answer questions about their experiences
Your job would be to work with a co-teacher in a public elementary, middle or high school in Gyeonggi Province in Korea, and to make English come alive for the students. It's challenging and rewarding in many ways.
Some practical matters:
- Departure will be late August or early September. Korea has not yet decided the precise date.
- You will be assigned to a school though you can request an urban or rural setting.
- You pay your own air ticket and are reimbursed shortly after arrival.
- A free furnished apartment is provided for you, along with a small stipend for set-up purchases.
- The salary is generous and health coverage is good. You are not liable for Korean or US taxes, so with free rent and no taxes, your take-home pay is great.
- Korea is a warm and friendly country with a passion for English.
