Why teach in Korea

 

What’s the attraction of teaching English in Korea? Well, apart from the opportunity to learn and explore a society steeped in history with its own unique culture, one of the reasons many people go to Korea is the money. A hardworking teacher can earn considerably more in Korea than they could in other countries in Asia, and with a lower cost of living than Japan, Korea gives you the opportunity to actually save. For people who see teaching English abroad as a way to pay their way while traveling, teaching in Korea could be the perfect option. Not only do you get to live in and learn about a new and fascinating country but you also have the ability to jet off to others in your holidays with places such as Vietnam or Thailand only a short flight away.


Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

This unit teaches the productive skills of speaking and writing. I enjoyed learning about the different ways of encouraging the students to speak and write and also what guidelines to place for free speaking activities. I also learned the difference between accuracy and fluency activities. The list of games in the classroom also provided good ideas for future lessons.Unit 3- This unit covered the different teaching theories, methods, and techniques. I learned about correcting a student, and how much should be corrected, and when. Then we learned about the 3 different stages of a lesson- Engage, study, activate. The literature gave many helpful and practical examples for each of the stages that can be incorporated into a lesson.
