SOUTH KOREA: Instructors

O.E.S. < [email protected] >
Date: 2 March 2003

We are looking for 2 teachers to start in early April. Applications from couples or individuals are welcome.

O.E.S is a successful English school with a good reputation. We have a staff of 4 native English speakers and 8 Koreans. The boss is decent and honest, which isn't always the case in Korea.

Flights are paid for and accomodation is provided. (Couples have the option of a larger flat with a double bed.) The pay is good and living in Korea is cheap so you can easily save a lot of money. Also one meal a day is provided. A bonus of one month's salary will be paid on completeion of your contract.

The hours are roughly 2 - 9:30pm Monday to Friday. You will be paid for 120 hours a month even though you usually won't work that many. If you do work more than 120 hours in a month you'll be paid overtime.

For more information about the job, the place or even the political situation please contact: [email protected]
We are happy to give you the contact details for current and past employees if you want to ask them what O.E.S is like.

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.


It seems to me that teaching beginning students would be easier in some ways since it would be mostly learning vocabulary and some basic usage rules. However since I have never taught before I have no idea how much a beginning student is expected to learn. Maybe there is more grammar taught than I think. Teaching business classes would be interesting because of the diversity of the students and the need to learn job specific language.This unit helps to visual yourself as a teacher within a classroom scenario and how you would react and cope when presented with different situations. I think it is important to realise that although you are there to teach, the students need to be able to progress without constant help and supervision. This would increase a student's confidence and most likely then also increase their pace of learning and their ability to help others.
