At Park English, we specialize in matching qualified candidates with teaching positions in Korea. If you have ever considered living abroad and teaching English, there are many jobs available in South Korea. Teaching in Korea enables you to meet energetic young people and enjoy an exciting, rewarding international living experience.
Teaching positions in Korea are abundant as the Ministry of Education has decided to hire an additional 500 teachers for English teaching jobs in South Korea. The Ministry has recognized the importance of English proficiency on the international business and diplomatic stage and has set goals for improving English throughout the country.
There are several benefits to teaching jobs in South Korea. Jobs in Korea pay between $24,000 and $35,000 for a twelve month teaching contract; on completion of a one-year contract, teachers receive a one-month bonus salary. Teachers work about 30 hours per week and typically around 120 hours a month. Other important benefits include health insurance, paid holidays and round-trip airfare. However, most teachers agree, the biggest benefit is the free furnished housing provided by schools, enabling teachers to save a significant amount of money during the year.
