Trip overview

Our Teach in South Korea trip combines both passions of teaching and travel into one. You’ll gain an internationally-recognised accreditation and be presented with the unique opportunity to have your own classroom of students as you embark on an unforgettable adventure to teach English abroad. Soak up the neon-lit and futuristic cityscapes, emerald green rice paddies, centuries-old temples and rows of mouth-watering market food as you explore one of Asia’s most developed countries.

We offer the complete package for those wanting to teach English overseas and, best of all, we have partnered with exclusive local teaching organisations who can offer you an optional paid teaching placement upon completion of your TESOL course. You’ll be able to earn an attractive living and enjoy twin-share accommodation, or you can take your new accreditation with you to almost anywhere else in the world. Our team will help you with all the essentials you need to kickstart your journey to becoming an English teacher overseas, from visa assistance to bank account set up, cultural activities and excursions, local support and so much more.

Immerse yourself in a whole new culture, create lifelong connections and tick off incredible bucket list spots in between. This trip is perfect for graduates and experienced teachers alike dreaming of broadening their horizons, travelling Asia and gaining international work & travel experience.

Just in case it’s not clear already, we’re not an employment or recruitment agency, so please don’t book with us if that’s what you’re looking for. We sell and organise amazing international travel experiences for the purpose of cultural exchange & education. If a trip has a paid work option, this is not mandatory to do and is there as a means to fund your travels only, and no fee is charged by us for this component. All payments you make are for travel and local support services. If you’re still confused, please get in touch.

Trip details

Our Teach in South Korea trip is designed to get you travelling, living and teaching English overseas as smoothly as possible. We’re here to help you from the very beginning, offering step-by-step guidance as you embark on a path to work and travel as an English teacher abroad. We provide an internationally-recognised TESOL course, arrange local cultural experiences and provide you with the optional opportunity to work as a paid English teacher with your accommodation included upon completion of your course. 

Arrive in South Korea with the reassurance that you will be many steps ahead of every other traveller or teacher in search of international experience in Asia. Once you’ve completed your TESOL, you’re free to take it with you to many countries in the world and embark on exciting teaching projects abroad. Or you can choose to stay for longer in futuristic South Korea and earn a local income with an optional teaching placement in various schools around the country. Not only that, but you’ll be staying in a self-contained, furnished apartment for the duration of your stay. We’ll plan and organise all the surrounding logistics, our 24/7 emergency support team is always on standby, and our in-country partner will guide you throughout the entire journey and answer any questions that may arise.

Spend your time teaching in South Korea, immersing yourself in the culture and animation, exploring the breathtaking landscapes and jetting off to neighbouring countries and leave the logistical stuff to us. We’re here to save you time, money, stress and even the risk of returning home early! Embrace a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel, live and teach in South Korea and start making magic happen in the classroom of your dreams.


To qualify for this trip, you must have a Bachelor's Degree or higher in any field that has been completed in the English language and meet the visa requirements. You'll be required to bring a laptop with you to aid your classroom duties as a teacher and you must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

What extra costs will I have? 

Travel insurance, visa, criminal background check, souvenirs & spending money.

Trip itinerary

The beauty of this trip is that you have the freedom to create your own adventure. But, for a rough idea, this is how most travellers spend their first few days: 

Week 1-4

Once you’ve touched down at Incheon International Airport, your private transfer will take you into Incheon to your course accommodation located only 30 minutes train ride from Seoul. 

You’ll be introduced to your TESOL classmates and trainers and prepare to begin your 4 weeks of training before your optional teaching contract starts! You’ll get to experience some of the cultural orientation activities planned, such as learning to make a traditional dish in a Korean cooking class, tasting delicious tea in a tea tasting ceremony, joining a taekwondo class and visiting the famous Gyeongbok Palace. 

If after your TESOL course completion you wish to do a paid teaching placement, most people are presented with a local teaching contract before they’ve even left home. In the unlikely chance you haven't received yours, our local partner won’t stop until you’ve got one.

Trip location

Arrive in Incheon so that you can start your in-country TESOL course. After that, you could find yourself teaching in one of the placements our in-country teaching partners have dotted all over South Korea.
