English Program in Korea - EPIK

EPIK is a Korean educational program affiliated with the Korean Ministry of Education. It was created in 1995 and since then has been a host of various native English teachers from around the world to come and teach English to Korean students ranging from elementary to high school.

I have been heavily interested in the prospect to teach abroad, especially through EPIK. There are many benefits to going through EPIK - a free place to live, food stipend, and a contract that specifies your length of work. Aside from these work-related benefits, it is simply amazing that one will get paid to teach and discover a new part of the world.

If you are interested in teaching in Korea, below is a very useful video offering tips on what to pack for going to Korea.

Being a Masters in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), I feel very excited that I can put my knowledge and skills of the field to the test when going abroad. I am very interested in working anytime between 1-2 years to get teaching knowledge and use that to teach in other countries.

Please inquire! Who knows, you might be offered an opportunity to teach abroad!
