Teach in South Korea

South Korea is a small, very modern and high-tech country located across the South China Sea from Japan, and is one of the best places to teach English in East Asia thanks to superb natural attractions and excellent teaching salaries and packages.

South Korea is also known for beautiful mountain ranges that invite hiking in summer and skiing in winter, cherry orchards, Buddhist temples, beautiful beaches and islands and a unique chilli-based cuisine.

The many cities in South Korean offer all Western conveniences as well as uniquely Korean entertainment centres called ‘bangs’ (rooms) for playing computer games, watching DVDs and singing Karaoke. Temples throughout South Korea also offer opportunities to participate in Temple life and learn martial arts – and most teaching appointments offer plenty of time to do it.

Experience the ancient history and traditions that co-exist comfortably with the current culture of technological and industrial progress in South Korea.

Milestone Institute (M.I) started over 15 years ago in the Gangnam district. Due to an ever-growing list of students, they have opened up branches in different locations across South Korea. Their core curriculum is based on Reading and Writing using American textbooks, novels, and other non-fictional content. Their small class sizes allow the teachers to build strong relationships with their students allowing them to help students excel in their studies.

They are looking for teachers that have the students’ best interest in mind and can work independently as well as part of a team. Whether you are looking to start a new career or further develop your career in Education, we believe M.I will be a fantastic opportunity for you.
