Seoul is home to almost 11 million people and is widely recognised as one of the world's most dynamic cities. Situated on both sides of the Han River the city has a long and interesting history and you can still see the ancient neighbourhoods and original city gates nestled among the gleaming chrome and glass skyscrapers that make up the modern skyline of today.

The standard of living in Seoul is very high compared to the cost of living, which is much lower than many other first world capitals (it is 25% cheaper than London and 40% cheaper than New York) so teachers can live very well in whatever neighbourhood they choose to live in.

Seoul is a diverse city with more than 700,000 foreigners living here side by side with the locals and this is reflected in the multi-national districts such as Itaewon and Hannam where you can find all the tastes of home if you're craving it. Korea is of course famous for its cuisine and you will be spoilt for choice trying to sample all it has to offer in the time that you're here. As well as the amazing restaurants, leisure facilities and amenities, Seoul is also a very green capital with a mountain (Namsan) situated right in the middle of the city. Namsan has a beautiful park, which is perfect for early morning exercise.

The transport infrastructure is excellent and there are many easy links out of the city using the clean and efficient subway system or the superfast KTX bullet train. Nowhere in South Korea is more than a few hours away from the capital.

Although Seoul is a big city it is never intimidating. Koreans are keen for guests to feel very positive about their country and all vital services including the utility companies have English speaking operators to help make your transition into Korea as smooth as possible.

The School

Our Seoul training centre is located in Jongro north of the river close to the historic neighbourhood of Bukcheon and the Grand Gyungbok Palace. The training centre itself is located near the famous Cheonggyecheon River, which runs through the city and is a delightful walk after a large meal. The area is filled with attractions including Insadong, a traditional artisanal market, Tong-In street food market and nationally famous restaurants. There is something for every budget in Jongro and it is well connected to the rest of the city.

The training centre has easy access to two subway stations and is open seven days a week with amazing views across the whole city. There is a large café on the first floor if you need a break and refreshments or just to do some lesson planning during the course.

Our course instructors are all experienced teachers who, as well as guiding you to become teachers yourselves, have been living and working in Korea for some years so will have plenty of insight and advice. You will be learning about methodologies, classroom management, lesson planning and more. You will also be observing experienced teachers in the classroom. As a teaching centre of more than 34 years we have a wealth of resources to help prepare you to become a fully-rounded, competent English teacher.
