    Teaching in South Korea

    Hi, I've just graduated from University and have just completed my CertTESOL. I'm planning on going to South Korea soon to teach English. I'd be interested to hear from anyone who has/is teaching in South Korea for any advice/tips etc.

    Re: Teaching in South Korea

    Check your school craefully. Korea has more than its fair share of bad stories, though there are also many teacher who love it.
    There's a list of bad schools here: http://www.usingenglish.com/cgi-bin/...mp.cgi?ID=4853

    Re: Teaching in South Korea

    OK thanks for that, I'll definitely check the list before signing the contract. I am looking into finding a school through Flying Cows Consulting - Teaching English in South Korea...Without the Bull!. I've seen good reviews about them but no first hand reports. Has anyone used flying-cows to go to South Korea?

    I haven't, but they have a good reputation and run checks first. Have you asked here? Korean Job Discussion Forums :: Index

    OK, sorry not to be able to help more, but I haven't been nearer than Japan.
