Korea - TeachAbroadKorea


Contract Length: 1 year | Location: Korea

Tue 23 August 2016 is a reputable agency located in Salt Lake City, Utah. The management at Teach Abroad Korea is American, but can be summed up as "Korean experts," having lived in Korea, learned the language, and known the country inside and out. 

Korea is a wonderful country with a rich history and fascinating culture. The Korean people have a remarkable interest in learning English as a second language, which creates a demand for English teachers from both the United States and Canada. Currently, there are 23,000+ foreign teachers living in Korea, the majority of which are from North America.


We are searching for outgoing and adventurous people who want to make new friends, help students learn and have an adventure of a lifetime! In addition, the four following criteria must be met: 

  • American, Irish, Australian, Canadian, or British citizen who speaks English as their first language 
  • Bachelor degree from an accredited college or university in any subject 
  • Clean criminal history 
  • Mentally and physically healthy 

Must prepare the documents as below: 

  • A criminal record check with an apostille (UK, Ireland, USA, Aus) - valid for 6 months 
  • A copy of diploma with an apostille (UK, Ireland, USA, Aus) 
  • A notarized criminal record check from the Korean consulate - Canada 
  • A notarized copy of degree from the Korean Consulate - Canada


Pay and Compensation

Though these can change from school to school, the average contract will include these items 

  • One year teaching contract 
  • $1,800-$2,200 per month salary (the exchange rate will cause this to vary slightly) 
  • Paid housing- typically a one bedroom furnished apartment within the vicinity of the school or a housing allowance 
  • Health benefits- typically 50% coverage (the Korean Government subsidizes health costs so any health expense will be very minor. For instance a typical doctor’s visit will cost less than $25) 
  • Vacation days- all major Korean holidays and 7-14 vacation days 
  • Paid flight to and from Korea 
  • Option to renew contract with higher pay
