Immidiate Openings at Korean Metropolitan & Provincial Education Boards

For teachers on a look out for a teaching post that provides a chance to travel for free, gain insight into a very different cultureand even to save money, Korea is an interesting option.

In fact, Korea provides one of the highest paying ESL jobs in the world! Teachers easily save at least W1,000,000 or USD1,055.00 a month. Hence more and more teachers are discovering teaching ESL in Korea as their passport to paid overseas work and travel!
Native English teachers in Korea make well above the average Korean wage. They earn more than a typical Korean employee or a computer programmer and more than Korean-born english teachers. It also allows them to live comfortably, save, travel in Asia, and even live a champagne lifestyle for a while.
