Date posted:2006-04-19 | Writer: ICCE Inc. | Email: [email protected]

There are three public elementary schools in Busan which are looking for


English teachers.


 


- Seon-Am Elementary school


( BumChun-Dong Jin-Gu 051-646-7955) Contact us


 


-Jung-Ri Elementary school


( DongSam-Dong YoungDo-Gu 051-403-8985) Contact us


Jung-Ri elementary school is located in Yeong-do, close to the sea with beautiful scenery.


The school is not that big and the number of students is not great.


But Jung-Ri's students and their parents are very enthusiastic about learning English, so


it would be a great place to teach.


 


- Nok-Myeong Elementary school


(NokSan-Dong GangSu-Gu 051-971-5144) Contact us


It's a bit away from downtown, and not many hours are assigned to teach


there.


 


2.Health conditions and precautions to take in the new area


- There is no specific regulation or restriction to be in Korea, but


possession of controlled substances or drugs is a very serious crime in Korea.


 


3. Regarding contract: it will be released to candidates upon approval of


employers.


 


4. The instructor will teach from 1st grade to 6 grade students. The


Maximum students in each class are 25.


 


5. This after school program is funded by Pusan unified school district


and department of education.


 


6.The furnished studio or 1 to 2 bedroom apartment will be provided with


separate sleeping quarters.


 


7.There are already 7, 000 foreign teachers in the city of Pusan. There are


a lot of websites regarding local information and ESL teacher's websites. We are

8. Amongst Internet users in South Korea, 94% use broadband, surprisingly


more than 10% higher than the global average. South Korea ranks highly in household


telecommunication spending and has passed 70% of household Internet


penetration.


Never fear a phone is always near! Korea is the land of cell phone and


mobile messaging gadgets. Phones in Korea are often 2 or 3 years ahead of the


stuff we get and they are often available at 1/4 the price! New phones can also be


purchased with the help of your school (acting as a guarantor). The can range from 60, 000


Won to 250, 000 Won or more but they will have a wide variety of phones and cool


features to choose from. Monthly fees will range from 10 000 Won to 40 000 Won. If


you're calling long distance be sure to use a CALLING CARD. These can be purchased at


corner stores and will save you a fortune. Landlines are not too badly priced,


you do pay a small fee each time you dial out, however it is not too expensive.

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.

 

In this unit I learnt how to assess the student's level and learning needs by conducting a level test first, and then a needs analysis test. We can then plan our lesson based on the level of the students, why or what they are learning for and what they need to achieve. Testing and examinations should be done at the end of the syllabus to assess their progress and also to assess the syllabus and see where we can improve.In this unit, I learnt the many various types of teaching aids and materials including, board, computer, video, cassette, audio, dictionaries, resource books, photocopiers, work sheets and work cards. This unit explained how each teaching aid can benefit a student who is learning English. The unit also detailed many different online sources and provided many links to various websites for people who are teaching English.
