Teaching English in Korea TEFL Internship Program

Gain real teaching experience through an established, government run program. Over 2,000 successful participants!

About teaching in Korea

Teach & Learn Korea works with Korean elementary schools in rural areas of the country. The program has successfully hosted over 2,000 participants and is part of a government drive to provide English language education possibilities to young Korean learners in less privileged communities.

You will enjoy a full one month training session and orientation on arrival. This is the perfect opportunity to gain TEFL experience in a safe and nurturing environment. You will also have the chance to make a real impact to the education and future life chances of your students, many of whom will never have had access to English language learning with a foreign teacher.

You will be supported every step of the way by your local elementary school, as well as Korean mentor teachers and previous TaLK program participants.

We welcome applications from degree holders and current undergrads (with at least 2 years academic completion).
