Children in Korea who you could be teaching on the TaLK (Teach and Learn Korea) programme

The South Korean government is sponsoring the TaLK (Teach & Learn in Korea) programme and is inviting adventurous global leaders to teach English and to experience  Korean culture first-hand.

This is an amazing and well-paid opportunity for a career breaker who wants to work abroad and to learn about another country at the same time.

You will:

  • Teach English in after-school classes in primary schools (15 hours a week)
  • Prepare teaching materials and activities for English language education
  • Assist with English and other extracurricular activities organized by the school, the local education authority, or the community

You can choose from a 6- or 12-month contract, and extending your contract may be extended, depending on your performance. You get holiday and sick leave, medical coverage, and will work as part of a co-teaching system. You will also receive orientation when you arrive, and be able to join in the cultural programme.

You must be a citizen of Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom or the United States of America (or a Korean who has been brought up in one of those countries), and you must have a degree. You don't need a TEFL qualification for this programme.
