dsc_0068We are often asked if TEFL programs are necessary, if online courses are acceptable, and which ones we recommend.

To be clear, securing quality teaching positions at private language institutes in Korea depends on several factors: Qualifications, experience, native accent, personality and aptitude, gender, and timing. That being said, qualifications are generally held in the highest regard in Korean society, and will ultimately make the difference.

Getting TEFL certification will not only improve your job prospects, but will properly prepare you for being an ESL teacher. It will teach you lesson planning, classroom management, teaching methodology and the basics of English grammar. It will also allow you to feel more comfortable and confident in the classroom.

One of the leading TEFL certificates out there is from ITTT. Their TEFL certificates have been accredited and are internationally recognized and well-respected by language schools and institutes within Korea. You can choose a method of study to suit your style via their range of in-class, online and combined (a combination of online and in-class study) TEFL courses. The online courses provide plenty of flexibility allowing you to study in your own time anywhere in the world.

NOTE: the most popular course for our teachers is the ONLINE 120-Hour Course with Tutor Support and Videos. This also comes with a FREE course focused on teaching young learners or teaching business English. It is cost effective and provides prospective teachers with all the knowledge they require when beginning their new job.
It is important to note that 120 hours is the benchmark for schools in Korea.
