Teaching English in South Korea as a ESL Teacher - The Opportunity of a Lifetime
Teaching English in South Korea as a public or private school teacher offers the best opportunity in all of Asia, and maybe the world. South Korea has been rapidly growing in the ESL department for the past 25 years. This means that they offer high salaries (crucial to people who are trying to save money), they have low costs but have a high standard of living compared to other Asian countries (inexpensive food, great transportation at low costs, and free housing). The greatest thing about South Korea is that they offer free housing (single apartment) for English teachers as well as 50% medical coverage. Visiting the doctor in the case you are not feeling well is very inexpensive. In addition at the end of a one year contract you not only get your last paycheck but also severance pay for an addiction paycheck and your national pension. Even if you do not save you will be going home with at least $5,000. Another great thing about living in South Korea is that it is in the heart of Asia, which makes travelling and vacationing to other Asian countries is very convenient and cheap. For people who enjoy a combination of work and play South Korea would be clear cut choice.
