Teaching/ Living in Korea

    We have had many readers ask us questions about teaching English in Korea. I found myself sending out the same messages over and over again on Facebook and Gmail, so I decided to make a page dedicated to those who are looking to teach here.
    Korea is an awesome place to live, and is the best place in Asia to save money. Of course I am going to be a little biased because I absolutely love Seoul, but hopefully these links give you a real glimpse into the teaching world in Korea! I will never make any overstatements, and will do my best to be upfront and honest with every recommendation.-Marie Webb
