Teach English in Korea

June 18, 2015

Teaching English in Korea is an amazing opportunity for university graduates to not only pay off their student loans but to discover a new country for FREE.

My name is Sarah Fauset and I am the owner of ESL Teacher Recruiter. I am from Canada and I taught English in Korea for 3 years. I had originally planned on staying a year but I had such a great time, I ended up staying for 3 years. I was able to pay off all of my students loans. I had the time of my life!

Upon returning to Canada, I wanted to give recent graduates the same opportunity that I had to pay off their student loans and travel for FREE.

I partnered with the most prestige private schools across Korea and have since successfully placed hundreds of recent graduates in awesome teaching positions in Korea.  The schools hire year round so graduates can start any time.

Here are some of the amazing benefits graduates can expect:

  • FREE Accommodation
  • FREE flights
  • A salary of 2.1 million won per month and up ($1930US)
  • 30 hour work week
  • 25 Paid Vacation days (15 national holidays plus 10 days paid vacation)
  • 50% of health insurance
  • A bonus of one month’s salary when complete your contract

Most graduates teaching English in Korea are paying over $1000US a month on their students loans.

In Korea, teachers get to enjoy a high standard of living while saving money.

Teachers also get to taste new food, learn a new language and meet other teachers from all over the world.

Like to eat out? You can afford to do this every night in Korea. Not to mention that the food is absolutely delicious and very healthy. You will have to try their traditional dish of Kimchi that is eaten with every meal. Koreans like spicy foods so you will get to enjoy lots of new dishes.

Korea is a unique place with lots to do.

You can get your black belt learning their national sport of Taekwondo.

Like karaoke? Why not hit up their Karaoke rooms with some friends for the night. You can sing together and laugh. This is one of my favourite places in Korea.

[E-2 Visa Form]

Occasionally a school needs a teacher right away and can’t wait a whole month in that case the teacher will come to Korea ASAP on a tourist visa first and then make a “Visa Run” to Japan.

※ You need to stay overnight because it takes 2 days to process your visa application.
You hand it in on the first working day before 3pm with all your documents and pick it up the next day after 10am.

Osaka Korean Embassy

2-3-4 Nishi-Sinsaibashi, Chuoku, Osaka, Japan
Postal Code: 542-0086
Phone number: (06)6213-1401~3
Time difference with Korea: 0
Documents: Visa letter and one picture.
Office Hours: 9:00am-12:00pm and 1:30pm-5:00pm (Monday to Friday) No Saturdays.

Instructions on how to get to the Korean consulate:

1) From the Airport

Get on the subway → take it to the brown vase stop- Tojin Machi (9th stop from the airport) it’s right after Ohori Koen ( a park ).
From Tojin Machi, leave by the first exit (1) it says Korean Consulate on it. Walk towards the traffic light after walking straight out of the exit. There turn right and go straight for about 10 minutes. You’ll have to cross over to the other side of the street.
The consulate has a Korean style roof and a Korean Flag. The area is really close to the Fukuoka Dome. If you are not sure most of the buildings in the area have maps.

2) From the Ferry

Take a bus to Tenjin (the 80 on the 84) but it should say Tenjin then change buses, and take a bus to the Fukuoka dome.
If you though don’t want to take a plane there is always the ferry from Pusan to Fukuoka. The ferry takes 14 hours and most of that is just time sitting waiting for the port to open in the morning. It leaves AT 6pm every second day. and arrives at 8am.
The return trip is the same. Sometimes the departure time changes so be sure to ask. The Hydrofoil takes about 3 hours and leaves twice a day from Pusan everyday. Make sure to get the return ticket in Pusan as the tickets in Fukuoka are much more expensive.

Again check with your school on all the Korean and Japanese holidays before doing your “Visa Run.”
