Why teach in Korea


What’s the attraction of teaching English in Korea? Well, apart from the opportunity to learn and explore a society steeped in history with its own unique culture, one of the reasons many people go to Korea is the money. A hardworking teacher can earn considerably more in Korea than they could in other countries in Asia, and with a lower cost of living than Japan, Korea gives you the opportunity to actually save. For people who see teaching English abroad as a way to pay their way while traveling, teaching in Korea could be the perfect option. Not only do you get to live in and learn about a new and fascinating country but you also have the ability to jet off to others in your holidays with places such as Vietnam or Thailand only a short flight away.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

This unit portrayed an intense amount of information on the present tense. It was ideal to return to the basic understanding of the present tense and showed how the English language can be spoken/written in so many different ways (in the present tense). It would certainly be confusing to a new learner and would have to be explained carefully and effectively.This unit is about testing by an ESL teacher and tests that students may be preparing for outside of class. The format seems pretty self-explanatory for someone who has taken a language class before. The best information would be the different purposes for giving tests. While a couple are obvious the rest are useful niches that I wouldn't have thought of.
