Description

This course is about getting a job teaching ESL like I did for 4.5 years in South Korea. Many countries hire people to teach their citizens English as a Second Language. I also include short videos talking about my experiences dealing with things like : the flight over, surprises, and knowing when it is time to go. Sometimes you'll be at one school for a year or more which is most schools. Sometimes you get a school you'd have said no to, if you had just done a little bit of homework on the school first. Had I known things to ask about when I was interviewing, I wouldn't have taken the 3rd school, but the first two were perfect. Hopefully my words of wisdom about what happened to me, will help you.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone that wishes to work teaching English overseas
